Just really a wild and crazy/busy week for Greensboro Grasshoppers baseball, but a good week at that, going (5-2) during their 7-game home stand….

Monday…Down 9-0, but battle back to win 11-10….
Tuesday…Rained out with ‘Lake Guilford’ springing up in the outfield…
Wednesday…Doubleheader loss to Asheville, falling 3-1 in Game One and then after leading 4-0, they get whipped 15-4 in Game Two…
Thursday….9-6 win in 12 Innings…
Friday…6-5 win with new players showing up everywhere….
Saturday…Finally a breather, taking the 10-2 victory over Delmarva…
Sunday…Finish off Delmarva in a four-game sweep, but still go extra innings again, claiming the win in 10, 7-6 over the Delmarva Shorebirds…

Crazy week with 7 new players added to the roster and lots of contributions from the new Hoppers, including two game-winners from second baseman, LF/DH Blake Barber….With the extra innings on Thursday and Sunday, plus the doubleheader on Wednesday, the team ended up playing one more full game this past week….Five extra innings on Wednesday, three on Thursday and then one more extra on Sunday….

A busy week and a crazy week indeed….
