Final from Tuesday night at First National Bank Field, in downtown Greensboro:
Greensboro Grasshoppers 8, Winston-Salem Dash 6
WP:Logan Hoffman(1-1)
LP:Ty Madrigal(0-2)
Hoppers(39-50/12-12)/Dash(44-47)

Hoppers' line:8-10-0
Dash' line:   6- 8-1

The Greensboro Grasshoppers win the game, with a Three-Run Walk-off Home Run, from Ernny Ordonez, in the bottom of the Tenth Inning…Ordonez is our Steak n Shake Player of the Game, as a result of his Walk-off, game-winning HR…For the game, Ordonez was 3-4/HR/BB/Run/3 RBI…

The Hoppers also got a two-run home run from Yoyner Fajardo, and a solo HR, from Endy Rodriguez…Rodriguez homered twice back on Saturday, then twice again on Sunday afternoon, and he hit another HR on Tuesday night…Fajardo was 2-5/HR/2 Runs/2 RBI/SB…

Rodriguez went 1-2/HR/2 BB’s/3 Runs/RBI…Since he has become such a home run threat, E Rod is not seeing as many good pitches, as he once did…You will start to see him end with a lot of unintentional, intentional walks from this point forward…

Jacob Gonzalez was 2-5/Run and he brought his average back up to .304, for the season….Hudson Head goes 1-4/BB/Run, while Dariel Lopez finished up at 1-5 in the contest…

Very solid finish from the Hoppers’ Logan Hoffman, to get the win…Hoffman came on in the 10th inning, and he hit the hill/mound/bump, just as the Grasshoppers’ Oliver Mateo was suffering a ‘Total Meltdown’…Mateo hit two batters and walked another, he had a balk, and he threw two wild pitches, one of which led to pinch-runner Caberea Weaver scoring the go-ahead run, in the top of tenth, and that wild pitch, allowed the WS Dash to move on top, 6-5, in the ballgame…Oliver Mateo just had one of those nights, where everything was going haywire…I looked up the definition for haywire to be sure I was barking up the right tree, and here is what I found for haywire:”to stop working correctly or become out of control”…That pretty much describes the ‘Total Meltdown’, that Oliver Mateo found himself experiencing…

But, Logan Hoffman was able to quiet the storm, after as he gave up 0 Runs/O Hits/BB/K, and the worked turned in by Hoffman, got many to thinking that they were seeing a reincarnation of Trevor Hoffman, out there on the mound/bump/hill on Tuesday night…Best ball we have seen from Hoffman this season at First National Bank Field, and was going rocky in the very beginning when he first came in the game, but when he settled and got his focus/groove on, Hoffman was the bossman, and he was taking what they were giving, and working for a living….

The Greensboro Grasshoppers pull together, and they win Game One, of the Six-Game Series, set for this week, at First National Bank Field…Hoppers up, 1-0, with Game Two just hours away, set to begin on Wednesday at 12 Noon, at FNB Field…

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.
