Former Greensboro Grasshoppers are all over the Florida Marlins’ roster, here late in the season and one Hopper from this season, Sandy Rosario, just joined the big-league team on Sunday…..
Six former Greensboro players were in the Marlins’ lineup on Monday with winning pitcher Chris Volstad, LF Logan Morrison, 1B Gaby Sanchez, RF Mike Stanton, C Brad Davis and another recent addition, SS Osvaldo “Ozzie” Martinez….
Catcher Brad Davis had a Grand Slam home run on Monday, the first by a catcher in Marlins history and pitcher Volstad got the win and tossed the quickest game in the history of the Marlins’ franchise, with the game going just 1:52……
Volstad, staked by Davis’ grand slam, helped the Marlins earn a 4-0 win over the St. Louis Cardinals on Monday afternoon…..Volstad hurled a complete game, going nine innings, while giving up no runs, on just five hits and he improved his record to (10-9) on the season….
Chris Hatcher, another former Greensboro Grasshoppers’ catcher has also re-joined the Marlins from Doulbe AA Jacksonville and Steven Cishek, a one-time Hoppers’ reliever out of the Greensboro bullpen, has also moved up to the major league team…..
The Marlins are now the Hoppers and vica versa…..
