Hoppers' line: 2-4-2
Cyclones' line:1-4-0

Light-hitting from both teams(just four hits each), but in the top of the eighth inning, the Two-Run home run from the Greensboro Grasshoppers Francisco Acuna turned out to the difference in the game, as the Hoppers win it, 2-1…Cameron Junker pitched a tough ninth inning, to earn his 7th Save of the season, for Greensboro…

Very solid and effective/efficient start from Greensboro Grasshoppers’ Jared Jones, who went six innings, allowing one run, on two hits, with two walks, and eight strikeouts…Steak n Shake defensive Player of the Game, for Jones…One inning from Wandi Montout to get the Win, one out of Eddy Yean to get the Hold, and Cameron Junker works the ninth inning only, to get the Save…As a staff, the Hoppers walked three, and stuck out eleven Cyclones…Junker goes ground out, ground out, single, Wild Pitch, and strikeout, to pick up his Save…

The Cyclones’ starting pitcher Carson Seymour was equally tough in comparison to Greensboro’s starter Jones, on Friday night… Seymour goes 6 2/3’s innings, giving up 0 runs, on 2 hits, with 1 BB/11 K’s…Jones with 95 pitches, with 59 for strikes….Seymour with 95 pitches, and 66 going for strikes…Jones and Seymour each faced 22 batters on Friday night…

Every day, Omega Sports helps friends and neighbors lead active lives.

But growing a greater neighborship in our communities is at the heart of everything we do. We believe that staying active in your life requires certain essentials like reliable footwear.

Sadly, we understand many of our neighbors can’t keep up with their footwear needs.

That’s why 30 years ago, we decided to create Summer Sneaker Trade-In to help our customers help neighbors in need while enjoying savings on us to say thank you.

And even though we host this annual event, that doesn’t mean we haven’t seen thousands of customers happy to bring in their shoes every month for donation.

Each neighborhood store works with a charity or organization to provide donated footwear.


If you’re shopping online, please take advantage of $30 OFF $145.*

If you’re local, drop off an older unwanted pair of shoes to help neighbors in need, or find a local organization in your area that could benefit from the donation.

*Applicable offers are in stores unless designated for online.


If you’re dropping off more than 1 pair of unwanted shoes and ready to gear up with multiple pairs of new shoes, make sure to take advantage of our MEGA GIFT BACK.

This offer is only available in stores. See stores for details.
