Posted by Andy Durham on June 7, 2015 at 8:01 pm under Professional | Comments are off for this article

South Atlantic/SALLY League Final from Sunday afternoon at NewBridge Bank Park:
Greensboro Grasshoppers 4, Hagerstown Suns 1
WP:Ben Holmes(2-4)/LP:Jeffrey Rodriguez(1-4)
SV:Kyle Fisher(2)…Hold:James Buckelew
Hoppers(23-32)/Suns(29-27)
GSO Line:4-8-0
HAG Line:1-7-1
Series Split at 2-2…

Both benches emptied prior to the game, but no physical altercations took place….Just lots of talk between the two teams and loads of jawing, back-and-forth…Hoppers’ pitching coach Jeremy Powell was given an early exit, but no real reason for why this happened at this time…Lots of talk by the teams prior to the game and it delayed the game about 6=7 mimutes from its scheduled 4pm start, as the upmpires felt like they had to restore total order before the game could begin….Once the game got going, a good day from Mason Davis, John Norwood and Zack Sullivan, as all three stole bases and they made Hagerstown pay, as did KJ Woods, who also came up with two hits…Very solid and steady outing by Ben Holmes to get the win…..
