Really got to say that Ross and McAdoo were the Wednesday night standouts, and now the Greensboro Grasshoppers are back standing in First Place again in the South Atlantic League’s Northern Division…The Hoppers(33-25) are a 1/2(Half-Game) ahead of the Jersey Shore BlueClaws(33-26) with 7 games left to play in the SALLY for the first half…

By the end of the third inning, the Greensboro Grasshoppers led this Wednesday night matchup, 6-1…

********Put a cork in this one, this game was over in the top of the fifth inning…With that 7-1 final score….***********

We talked about what Shawn Ross and Charles McAdoo did at the plate in the Hoppers victory over Winston-Salem, and let’s look at the other Hopper hitters and let’s give McAdoo one more prop, as he added a Stolen Base to his workload efforts on Wednesday night…
More Hoppers:Termarr Johnson 1-4/2 Runs/SB…Mitch Jebb 1-5…Nick Cimillo 0-4/BB/Run…Michael Escotto 1-4…Luke Brown 0-2/2 BBs/Run/SB…P.J. Hilson 0-3/BB…

Hoppers on the Hill:Starter Patrick Reilly worked 4 1/3 innings and gave up 1 run, on 3 hits, with 4 BBs and 3 Ks…Reilly left the game in the fifth inning, after throwing 87 pitches, with 47 going for strikes…Reliever Luis Peralta came in from the pen to get the win for the Grasshoppers, his third of the season, against no losses, and Peralta went 2 2/3s innings allowing 0 runs, on 1 hit, with 2 BBs/1 K…To close things out, Yoldin De La Paz handled the final two innings of the contest, giving up 0 runs, on 0 hits, with 2 BBs/2 Ks…Solid outing overall for the Hoppers’ pitching staff and the only quirk we see is that they walked 8 Dash batters as opposed to the 6 strikeouts…

Four different Dash batters had one hit each, and Samuel Zavala went 1-2/Double/3 BBs, and he scored the only run of the night for the WS Dash…Bryce Willits went 1-3/BB, and he drove in the only run of the game for the Dash…

The Dash starting pithcer Tanner McDougal took the loss for WS, going 3 innings, and giving up 6 runs on 4 hits, with 5 BBs and 1 K, plus he gave up two of the Shawn Ross HRs…Position player, Taishi Nakawake, came on to pitch the top of the ninth inning for the WS Dash…
