After Greensboro loaded the bases with one out, Connor Kaiser delivered an RBI single to cut their deficit to 3-2. Mason Martin then followed with a 449-foot grand slam to right field to put the Grasshoppers on top 6-3.
Adon finished the day allowing six runs on five hits over 4.2 innings of work. He also walked five batters, . Suns pitchers walked a season-high 10 batters. Their previous season-high was seven.
The Suns tied the game in the bottom of the fifth, but Greensboro answered right back in the sixth and took the lead for good against Hagerstown reliever Trey Turner (L, 1-3). After a leadoff walk, Zac Susi delivered an RBI double to put the Grasshoppers on top and then Ji-Hwan Bae came through with an RBI double of his own to make it a two-run difference.
