*****Jared Gesell(High Point Christian Academy) worked two games on the mound, during the four-game series, for the Asheville Tourists…The Hoppers took the series, Three-games-to-one…*****

Final from Monday night at First National Bank Field:
Greensboro Grasshoppers 12, Asheville Tourists 4
WP:Kyle Keller(1-0)/LP:Julian Fernandez(1-2)
Hoppers’ Line:12-11-0
Tourists’ Line:4-5-0
GSO record(43/37/6-6)/ASH record(35-45/6-6)
HR’s(ASH)Wille Abreu, Bobby Wernes, Jacob Bosiokovic and Max George…
(GSO) Luis Pintor(4) Grand Slam…
Kyle Keller faced 9 batters and he took down all nine….Keller 3 Innings/0 Runs/0 Hits/0 BB’s and 4 K’s and Keller caught three of the 4 ASH strikeout victims looking….KK with three KL’s…..
Pintor goes 3-3 with HR/2 Runs/5 RBI….9 runs for the Hoppers in the bottom of the 6th Inning, with 8 of the 9 runs coming off of Julian Fernandez proved to the game-changing stage of the game…..

Kyle Keller would be your defensive player of the game and Luis Pintor would take offensive honors…
LP Julian Fernandez was hitting 101 mph, but he could not locate his spots for ASH and was too wild….

Solid start for Hoppers’ Dustin Beggs, but he got into trouble giving up those back-to-back-to-back homers in the 4th, but he fought back in the fifth, to strike out the last two men he faced, striking out Wernes swinging and
Bosiokovic looking….Beggs bulldog battled back to end up with the No Decision and left with the game tied at 3-3, after the Hoppers led early, 3-0….

Reilly Hovis worked the ninth inning to close out the game for the Hoppers, giving one hit, the HR, to Max George…One run, one hit and one K for Hovis….
Beggs went five Innings, giving up three runs on four hits, with 4 BB’s and 5 K’s and he gave up the three solo HR’s……
