Greensboro with those 2 runs on 8 hits, and the Hoppers out-hit the Tourists, 8-6, but the wild thing is, the Greensboro Grasshoppers did not draw one walk at all, the whole night long…No walks for the Hoppers, and that is rare…They struck out 7 times which is not that bad, but not drawing one single solitary Walk…That throws you back, under the bus…

Top Asheville hitter was Luis Baez, who went 1-4/HR/Run/2 RBI…Garret Guillemette was 2-4 at the plate for the Tourists…Austin Deming goes 1-3/Double/BB/Run for Asheville…

The Greensboro Grasshoppers’ starting pitcher Patrick Reilly worked 5 innings, allowing 2 runs, on 2 hits, with 4 BBs/6 Ks…And Reilly gave up that first inning HR to the Tourists’ Baez…A two-run homer it was for Luis Baez, and that was about all the runs the Tourists needed…Ryan Harbin, from the Hoppers’ bullpen, struck out 5 Tourists on the night, over his two innings of work…Hoppers’ pitching staff with 13 Ks on the evening…
