FINCH FIELD, NC, JUNE 19 – After a fifty minute rain delay, the HiToms (10-10) added to the loss column once more with a 9-5 loss to the Gastonia Grizzlies (12-8).
It was a fairly quiet game until the fifth where both teams scored three runs making it a 4-4 game. However, a huge top of the sixth for the Grizzlies boosted their lead to 8-4. The HiToms only scored one more run during the comeback push.
The Grizzlies added an insurance run in the top of the ninth to push the lead out of reach for the HiToms.
The HiToms hit the road tomorrow for a trip to Lexington County to take on the Blowfish at 7:00 p.m. They are back at home Sunday for the international show down against the Chinese Taipei. First pitch is set for 5:00 p.m.
