The Hoppers trailed the game 1-0 going all the way into the Top of the Ninth Inning, where they pushed across three runs, to go on and win the ballgame, 3-1, over the Braves…In the top of the 9th, new pitcher for the Braves Alec Barger, and the Grasshoppers got to him…Francisco Acuna walks, Hudson Head singles and Acuna moves to third base…Dariel Lopez singles and that scores Acuna, and Head moves to second base…Jacob Gonzalez gets hit by a pitch, and Head goes to third base, and Lopez to second…It becomes station-to-station baseball, as the next man up Yoyner Fajardo singles and that scores head from third, while Lopez and Gonzalez both move up 90 feet…The score is now 2-1 Hoppers…Jace Bowen with a sacrifice fly scores Lopez from third and there is now one out, and Greensboro now leads Rome, 3-1…Eli Wilson reaches base on a throwing error, and then Jackson Glenn lines out, and Mike Jarvis strikes out…

This allows the Greensboro Grasshoppers to take a 3-1 lead to the bottom of the ninth inning, where Hoppers reliever Cristian Charle gets the Braves, 1-2-3, and this gives the Grasshoppers a 3-1 win, over the Rome Braves…The Hoppers got six innings of work from their starter Nick Garcia, and the WP Matt Eckelman put in two innings of scoreless baseball to earn the victory, for the Hoppers…
