Hoppers' line:1-5-1

Greensboro Grasshoppers’ Steak n Shake Player of the Game:Dariel Lopez went 3-4, with a Double, and he scored the Hoppers lone run in this game…

A huge difference in the outcome of this game was the start by the Greenville Drive starting pitcher Tyler Uberstine…This was Uberstine’s first start of the season for Greenville…He was previously with the Salem Red Sox in 2022, where he went (4-4) over 14 games, with 8 starts, and he had one Save, from the pen…Uberstine 58 1/3 innings for Salem, where he walked 21 batters, and he struck out 66…

In Uberstine’s first start for the Greenville Drive, on Saturday night at First National Bank Field, he was in charge of the game from the beginning…For the night over his 5 1/3 innings, he gave up 0 runs, on just two Hopper hits, with one walk, and those Ten(10) big strikeouts…For Uberstine, he got two Hopper batters by K in the first inning, he struck out three more Hoppers in the second, he struck out the side in the fourth inning, he got two more Hoppers to K in the fifth…Very dominant outing by Tyler Uberstine, the former Northwestern Wildcats’ hurler…Ten strikeouts on Saturday night, for the man from the Big Ten, Uberstine…

The Greensboro Grasshoppers could stand in line, and Uberstine, was ready to mow them down on Saturday night…

Dariel Lopez was the lone bright spot at the plate for the Grasshoppers on Saturday night…Lopez scored the Hoppers only run, as he came up with three hits, in four plate appearances, including his twelfth Double of the season…Not a bad night at all, for Dariel Lopez…Other Hopper hitters:Hudson Head 1-3/RBI…Luke Brown 1-3/Double…Sammy Siani 0-3/BB…Endy Rodriguez 0-3/BB…

Big hits for the Greenville Drive came from Matthew Lugo, who had himself a three-run home run, his tenth of the year, and with the three RBI, Lugo’s season total now stands at 45 RBI…Greenville got a solid plate night from Phillip Sikes, as Sikes went 2-3/Triple/2 Runs/RBI…Tyler McDonough was 1-5, and he drove in two runs for the Drive…McDonough came up with a key game-sealing single, his first hit of the game, and it came in the top of the ninth inning…Niko Kavadas, 1-4/BB for Greenville, with an RBI…

Time of Game-2:25

Next Up:With the Greensboro Grasshoppers up in the Six-Game Greenville Drive series, 3-2, the two clubs, Hoppers(Pirates), and the Drive(Red Sox), will conclude their week-long matchup with a Sunday afternoon matinee, beginning at 2pm…First pitch at 2, and the kids and family can play catch on the field before the game, and then the kids get to run the bases, after the game…Gonna be Sunday Funday, at First National Bank Field…

(So far in the games this week, there have been no close ballgames, and no real drama, other than the threat of rain…Scores like 11-4, 8-4, 11-2, 11-3, and 7-1….As Stephen Long from the Hoppers staff has said, there has been no in-between in this Hoppers-Drive series…Will Sunday be the day, that the dramatics take center stage??? This is the “Season of the Summer, in the SALLY”/South Atlantic League.)
