It’s not always about style points

The Hoppers played one of their worst games of the season Wednesday afternoon but the end result was the same — another win.

The 10-8 victory over Kannapolis in 11 innings boosted Greensboro’s record to 28-10 overall and kept its Northern Division lead over Hagerstown at six games. It was the Hoppers’ 14th straight win in NewBridge Bank Park, putting them at 18-2 at home this season.

“It was an ugly game all around,” summed up manager David Berg. “But it’s better to win ugly than to lose playing a great game. You just write up the report and wake up tomorrow with a new perspective.”

How ugly? Four pitchers were tagged for 12 hits, issued five walks, hit three batters, threw two wild pitches and recorded two blown saves. The fielders committed four errors, although center fielder Brent Keys and right fielder Ryan McIntyre saved some runs with outstanding catches.
