Using six different pitchers, the WS Dash pitching staff walked seven Hopper batters, and struck out 15 Hoppers on Sunday…The Grasshoppers come out of Sunday’s game looking pretty darn good, having just won the Six-Game home stand with the WS Dash, 5-1, and now the Hoppers lead the 18-game overall Season-Series, 11-7…..
