Final from Saturday night, at First National Bank Field, in beautiful downtown Greensboro:
Greensboro Grasshoppers 7, Winston-Salem Dash 3
WP:Cristian Charle(1-0)
LP:Cristian Mena(1-2)

Hoppers' line:7-10-1
Dash' line:   3- 9-0

Steak n Shake Players of the Game were the winning Hoppers’ pitcher, Cristian Charle, and the Hoppers’ home run hitter, Abrahan Gutierrez…Gutierrez homered in the bottom of the first inning, to give the Grasshoppers their early 3-1 lead…

Charle was the quiet man, with a very efficient outing on the hill/mound/bump for the Hoppers…Charle worked three innings in relief, giving up 0 Runs, on 2 hits, with 0 BB, and 0 K’s…Again, Charle was ‘The Quiet Man”, as he quieted down the WS Dash, after they had scored two key runs in the fifth inning, off of Logan Hoffman…In the fifth, Charle induced a fly ball to center, from Ben Norman of the Dash, and then he got Adam Hackenburg to ground into a double play, and the next thing you know, Charle is hot as a smooth-running Harley…

In the sixth inning, he hit a batter(Dash #9 man Jason Matthews), but he ended up on facing only four Dash batters in that sixth inning…In the seventh inning, Charle faced just three WS Dash hitters, and after he gave up a a one-out single to Luis Mieses, he got Alsander Womack to hit into a double play, which featured a come-backer to pitcher Charle, who went to second for one out, and then Hopper SS Acuna went to first base, to complete the twin-killing…

Charle was so smooth, you had to call him Mr. Smooth, or ‘The Quiet Man’…And if Charle was “The Quiet Man”, then Gutierrez has had to be the “Walking Man”, in recent games…Earlier in the week, ‘The G Man’, Abrahan with an N, he walked three times in one game, and he scored three times…The next game he walked two times, the game after that, Gutierrez one time with a walk, and then tonight/Saturday, “The G Man” walks again…Abrahan with the N, also homered again, and that three-run shot, helped the Hoppers a lot…

Other Hopper helpful and hot hitters on Saturday night:Endy Rodriguez 2-4/2 Runs and E Rod/Hot Rod is now batting .297…Francisco Acuna 2-4/Run…Luke Brown 2-4/Run…Dariel Lopez 1-3/Triple/BB/2 RBI…Angel Basabe 1-4/Double/Run/RBI…Jackson Glenn 1-4…Jacob Gonzalez was 0-3/BB, but is still batting, .316….Gutierrez went to 43 RBI for the season, and Lopez hit the 42 RBI mark…

The top WS Dash hitter on Saturday night was Bryan Ramos, who went 2-5, with a run scored…Luis Mieses did drive in his 66th run of the year…No extra base hits for the Dash on Saturday night, but the Dash did leave 13 men on base…

It was really sort like one of those Jimmy Buffett, Livingston Saturday Nights, on Saturday night at First National Bank Field…You know, “Won’t you listen to sound of hot country band of Hoppers, boot heels shuffling on the dance floor Crabbe, play some pong, get it on, eat a deviled egg, temperature is rising, better shake another leg…19 runs might get you twenty, and that’s all right, because then you were rocking and a-rolling on a Livingston Saturday Night, at FNB Field”…
