Final from Sunday afternoon at First National Bank Field, in beautiful downtown Greensboro:
Jersey Shore BlueClaws 4, Greensboro Grasshoppers 0
WP:Dominic Pipkin(2-6)
LP:Adrian Florencio(1-10)

BlueClaws' line:4-8-0
Hoppers' line:  0-5-0

Steak n Shake Players of the Game:Luke Brown who went 1-4, with a Triple on Sunday for the Hoppers…On defense, it was Francisco Acuna, as he had several solid plays, as he was hanging out over around the second base bag, and the Hops’ shortstop turned in another stellar game on defense…Other Hopper hitters saw Jacob Gonzalez 1-4, Yoyner Fajardo 1-2/2 BB’s…Eli Wilson 1-3/BB…Jackson Glenn 1-4…

Baron Radcliff with his 10th home run of the season for the BlueClaws, and Rixon Wingrove with his 9th HR of the year, for Jersey Shore…

Three innings of scoreless baseball from the Hoppers’ starting pitcher, Ricky Devito…Devito gave up 0 runs, on two hits, with 1 BB/3 K’s….Greensboro also got to see BIG Matt Eckelman(6’4/281), as the Big Man continues to work on his knuckleball, and his knuckle curve, to go along with his 90 mph fastball, and he is still a work-in-progress, but it it is fun to watch his development/conversion….

Jersey Shore, 8-0 winners on Saturday, and 4-0 winners, on Sunday…..

Time of Game/TOG-2:28
