Greensboro Grasshoppers 6
Rome Georgia Braves 3
The Hoppers drew nine walks in the win and now they are just two and a-half games back of the first-place Lakewood BlueClaws, good for second place at (31-28) and now the Hoppers are tied with the Hickory Crawdads, for that #2 spot in the South Atlantic League’s Northern Division….The race is still on for the second half title, with right at one week left, in the regular season……
The Florida Marlins defeated the New York Mets 5-4, in New York last night, with former Greensboro Grasshopper, Alex Sanabia(3-1), picking up the win…..
The Marlins led 5-1 in this game, and held on for the victory….Former Hopper, Logan Morrison, went 3-5 with a triple on his 23rd birthday and Greensboro Grasshopper alum, Gaby Sanchez added two more RBI’s to his season total, to give him 68 now, for 2010….
Hanley Ramirez, sporting a new hair look, that makes him look like Fantasia Barrino(from High Point, N.C.), was 4-4, with four singles for the Fish….
Final from New York:
Florida Marlins 5
New York Mets 4
The Atlanta Braves led the Colorado Rockies 10-1 before getting nailed by the Rocks, 12-10….I found this one hard to believe, after hearing early portions of this game, but the Braves got hit by a Rockslide and now the Bravos and the Phillies, can’t make up their minds about who wants to hold down the top spot, in the NL East….
