Final from Truist Field, in Winston-Salem, N.C.:
Winston-Salem Dash 4, Greensboro Grasshoppers 3
WP:Vince Vannelle(3-1)
LP:Oliver Mateo(0-1)

Dash' line:   4-9-0
Hoppers' line:3-5-1

Hoppers’ hitters:Jacob Gonzalez 2-4/HR/2 RBI…Fabricio Macias 1-3/HR…Hudson Head 1-3/Run…Jack Herman 1-3…Endy Rodriguez 0-2/BB…
The Greensboro Grasshoppers scored all of their runs in the top of the 7th inning, on a two-run home run by Jacob Gonzalez, and a solo HR, from Fabricio Macias…
from the WS Dash website:
After the sixth inning went scoreless as well, Greensboro’s Hudson Head doubled off of Isaiah Carranza to open the seventh. Later, Jacob Gonzalez jumped on the first pitch of the at-bat, crushing it into the Appalachian Mountain Brew-pen in left field for a two-run home run. After a ground out, Macias also went yard to put the Grasshoppers up 3-0.

The Hoppers took a 3-0 lead to the top of the eighth inning…

The Dash scored two runs on three off of Greensboro reliever Eddy Yean, in the bottom of the 8th inning, to cut the Hoppers lead to, 3-2…More from the Dash website:Moises Castillo opened the inning with an infield single, and Oscar Colas singled behind him to put runners on first and second. A wild pitch let Colas and Castillo move to second and third base, respectively. With Bryan Ramos up now, he fell behind Eddy Yean 1-2, before lacing a two-run single to cut Greensboro’s lead to 3-2.

In the bottom of the ninth inning, the Dash put up two more runs off of Hoppers’ closer, Oliver Mateo, with Mateo giving up the two runs, on 0 hits, but he walked three Dash batters, and that led to the two WS Dash runs….
Here is how those two runs came in to score, and in the process, the Dash walked off the Greensboro Grasshoppers:(again, coming in from the WS Dash website)…

Oliver Mateo entered the ninth in a save situation for Greensboro, but walked Shawn Goosenberg on four pitches. Next up, Duke Ellis worked the count full before drawing a walk himself. Then, Castillo walked on four pitches as well. The ‘Hoppers had seen enough, calling on Cameron Junker to try and wiggle his way out of a bases loaded, nobody out jam. He had to face Colas with the winning run standing on second base, in Duke Ellis.

Oscar Colas took strike one, before inside-outing a ball into shallow left field. Goosenberg scored easily from third as the ball dropped in, and Duke Ellis flew home safely behind him as the Warthogs walked it off against Greensboro by a final score of 4-3. That was the third walk-off hit of the year for Colas. Vanelle got the win in relief, with Mateo taking the official loss.
