from Monday night:
Six different Bowling Green players drove in at least one run and five pitchers combined to propel Bowling Green past Greensboro, 7-5, in Game 4 of the High-A East Championship Series at Bowling Green Ballpark. The teams combined for 22 hits — with six going for extra bases — and three lead changes.
“It was like a boxing match out there, just back and forth — exchanging blows — the entire night,” Hot Rods skipper Jeff Smith said. “We struck, they came back. We hit, they came back and hit. Just back and forth all game. We had some great at-bats with two strikes that prolonged innings, and everyone just chipped in and did their part. It was a gritty performance by the whole team.”
Greensboro had traffic on the basepaths in every inning except the seventh — when Angel Felipe retired the side in order on nine pitches. In five of the other eight frames, the Grasshoppers had multiple players reach base. Greenboro struck first in the game on a solo home run by Will Matthiessen to center in the second. Matt Gorski also found the seats for the Grasshoppers on a solo blast to left-center in the fourth. A bases-loaded walk taken by Lolo Sanchez tied the score, 4-4, in the sixth. The outfielder finished with a pair of walks and a knock…..
