Greensboro Grasshoppers battle back to knock off Lakewood Blueclaws on Thursday night at NewBridge Bank Park

Down 2-1 headed to the bottom of the 8th inning, the Greensboro Grasshoppers battled back to post five runs in the bottom of the 8th frame and went on to win the game over Lakewood, 6-3……Solid pitching effort in the middle innings by James Leverton, after a steady start by Kyle Winters and then Michael Brady struck out the last two Blueclaw batters in the top of the 9th to close out the game…..Brady had given up a solo home run earlier in the 9th, but he bounced back to get the last two Claws…..
