Final from Thursday night at First National Bank Field, in downtown Greensboro:
Greenville Drive 11, Greensboro Grasshoppers 3
Drive' line: 11-8-0 Hoppers' line:3-8-4
Too many Hopper errors on Thursday night, with four miscues, too many walks by the Hoppers’ pitching staff on Thursday night, with 8, too many Drive batters hit by the pitch, with three, and too many Wild Pitches by the Hoppers hurlers, with three by Santiago Florez….
Way too many extra outs given to the Greenville Drive offense/batters…Never really saw any command from the Hoppers’ pitching staff on this night, with Logan Hoffman able to extract some of the Drive hitters he faced, but he still ended up walking three Greenville batters, in his two innings of work…
The Grasshoppers’ Adrian Florencio, Domingo Gonzalez, and Santiago Florez did not have the right stuff that will make you a winner, on Thursday night…We could go over all of their numbers, but we would be beating a dead horse…
The Hoppers need a Horse from their pitching staff to step up on Friday night, in Game Four of this week’s series, vs. the Greenville Drive…
The four errors by the Hoppers on defense gave Greenville more extra outs, and that is the last thing that the Greensboro Grasshoppers wanted to be giving away on Thursday evening….
Hopper hitters:Dariel Lopez 2-3/Double…Ernny Ordonez 2-4/RBI…Endy Rodriguez 1-4/Double/Run…Mike Jarvis 1-4/HR/Run/RBI…Jacob Gonzalez 1-4….Gonzalez keeping his batting average over .300, at .304…Jackson Glenn 1-3/Double/BB…Luke Brown HBP/Run…Yoyner Fajardo 0-4/BB…Sammy Siani 0-3/BB…
Big Joe Davis homered for the Drive, his 15th of the season, and his RBI total went to 29…Nicholas Northcut, the Drive’ third baseman has 23 home runs on the year, plus 51 RBI…The Drive’s Phillip Sikes also homered on Thursday night, a three-run pop, and it was Sikes’ first HR of the season…
I am going to pull one out of my hat for the Steak n Shake Player of the Game from Thursday evening…The honor will go to Greenville Drive bat boy…The little kid is the son of one of the Greenville coaches, and he is out before the games each afternoon fielding ground balls, and getting his workouts in…The kid is probably around 6-7 years old, and he is good at what he does…Fun watching him drag the bats, and picking up loose baseballs during the games…
In their wins over Greenville on Monday and Wednesday, the Greensboro Grasshoppers took two steps forward, and then with the loss on Thursday night to Greenville, the Hoppers took one step backward…Which/what way will they walking on Friday night???
Time of Game-2:50
Next Up:Friday night, Greensboro Grasshoppers vs. Greenville Drive, at 6:30pm, at First National Bank Field, in beautiful downtown Greensboro…..
