Hoppers’ starting pitcher Wilber Dotel went five innings, giving up just 2 runs on five hits, with a Walk, and Six Strikeouts…The two runs that Dotel gave up were solo home runs, by Tyler Miller and Cutter Coffey…They say the solo homers won’t kill you, and they did not destroy Dotel…He did his part to limit the damage, and left the game, with the lead….From the Hoppers’ bullpen, both Jaycob Deese and Julian Bosnic, had their struggles on Saturday night, in Greenville….

The top Drive hitters were Miller and Coffey, who hit the solo HRs…Tyler Miller went 3-4/HR/Run/RBI…Cutter Coffey was 2-5/HR/2 Runs/RBI…The Greenville winning pitcher, Dalton Rogers, really got blasted…Rogers went 3 2/3’s innings, allowing 4 runs on 6 hits, with 4 BBs/4 Ks, and he gave up the Charles McAdoo three-run Home Run…Fortunately for Rogers, he was still around when the Drive grabbed those two runs in the bottom of the seventh inning, to move in front of the Hoppers, 6-5…Then behind Caleb Bolden, the Drive held on to win the game…

Greenville Drive take a 3-2 lead in the Best-of-Six Games Series this week, in Greenville, S.C.
