Final from Friday night, at First National Bank Field, in downtown Greensboro:

WP:Jared Jones(3-4)
LP:Yusniel Padron-Artiles(3-8)

Hoppers' line:14-15-0
Drive' line:   2- 5-2

This game featured Big Ball/Long Ball from the Hoppers, with home runs from Dariel Lopez, Hudson Head, and Eli Wilson…Lopez and Head, with two-run HR’s, and Wilson with a solo home run…The Grasshoppers got a bases loaded walk, and a bases loaded hit by pitch, and they got two runs for just stepping up to the plate…The Hoppers scored five runs in the third inning to go on top, 5-2, and then after Greensboro posted six runs in the bottom of the sixth inning, with twelve men coming to the plate, the Grasshoppers were now up, 11-2…

Greensboro struck for those two big innings, five in the third, and then six more runs in the sixth inning, and this was not even a ballgame…It was blown wide-open…For everything that Greenville was able to do, due to Greensboro miscues/errors, walks, wild pitches, and other phantom blunders on Thursday night, all these things were happening to the Greenville Drive on Friday night, and for sure, the shoe was on the other foot…All that was going wrong for the Hoppers, one night earlier, it was now happening to Greenville on Friday night….

The Hoppers’ starting pitcher Jared Jones was a bit shaky in the second inning as he gave up two runs, to the Greenville Drive, and the Drive took a 2-0 lead, but that was the door-closer, because it was all over after that…Jones settled down, and he gave the Hoppers 6 1/3 solid innings on the hill…Jones gave up the two runs, on five hits, with three walks, and he had six strikeouts, plus he hit one Greenville batter…Hoppers’ reliever Ricky Devito was bringing smoke, as he worked 2 2/3’s innings, giving up 0 runs, on 0 hits, with 1 BB, and 3 K’s…The Grasshoppers only having to use two pitchers in their win on Friday night…

Jones and Devito for the Steak n Shake defensive Players of the Game…And let’s go with Dariel Lopez and Hudson Head, as the Steak n Shake offensive Players of the Game…Lopez and Head both with two-run Home Runs, while Lopez was 3-4/HR/Run/4 RBI…Head goes 3-5/HR/2 Runs/2 RBI…

From Lopez and Head, you get six of the Hoppers 15 hits on the night…Big Ball/Long Ball, Small Ball, and all of that other ball, in-between…Other Hopper hitters:Francisco Acuna 2-4/HBP/Run/RBI…Eli Wilson 2-4/HR/BB/2 Runs/RBI…Ernny Ordonez 2-4/Double/Run…Abrahan Gutierrez 1-4/Double/HBP/Run/2 RBI…Endy Rodriguez 1-3/2 BB/Run/RBI…Jackson Glenn 1-5/BB/2 Run/RBI/SB…Yoyner Fajardo 0-4/BB/2 Runs/RBI…Luke Brown 0-1…38 at Bats on the night, for the Greensboro Grasshoppers vs. 30 trips to the plate, for the Greenville Drive…

Not much drama in this game, and you hope the Greensboro Grasshoppers can keep up the same, or a similar attack pace, on Saturday night…The Hoppers now lead the Best-of-Six Games Series, 3-1, with Game Five coming up, on Saturday evening…
