Four Solo Home Runs off of the Dash bats…They say the Solo HR’s won’t kill you, but they sure hurt the Greensboro Grasshoppers on Tuesday night at FNB Field…Solo Home Runs from Destino, who had two of them, and from Dawkins and Gill…Again, four solo home runs…On the home runs alone, the Dash would have won this game 4-1….The Hoppers with their one HR, the two-run homer from Grant Koch, with his first HR of the year/season…

**********Without a doubt, the Solo Home Runs were the difference in this game on Tuesday night…They did not kill, but they did hurt the Greensboro Grasshoppers chances to win this game….The Dash are now up One-game-to-None, in the Best-of-Six Series set for this week, at First National Bank Field….**********

++++++++++Solid start by the Dash’ Davis Martin, but he only went 4 2/3’s innings, so he did not qualify for the win…The Dash win went to their reliever Trey Jeans(1-0)…Martin gave up three runs on on four hits, with one walk and seven strikeouts…Davis allowed the two-run HR by the Hoppers’ Grant Koch….Solid effort from the Dash bullpen, as they gave up 0 runs, and they(Jeans, Luke Schilling, and Lane Ramsey) struck out 8 Hopper batters….The Dash pitchers struck out a total of 15 Hopper batters…The Hoppers’ bullpen only gave up one run, and that was another one of those Solo HR’s from Alex Destino, and it came off of the Hoppers’ Matt Ford….++++++++++
