Stars, Stripes, and Strikes!

Tonight was Military appreciation night, and what a night it was!  With an on the field temperature of 73 degrees and wind slightly blowing, it made a great night for baseball.  The pitchers on the mound tonight were Jose Urena and Austin Brice.  They combined for an amazing 14 strikeouts!!!  It was incredible to see that duo sling the ball.  The score was tied at zero going into the 4th when Urena had two walks and then Lakewood would clear the bases before the inning was over making it 4-0.  Josh Adams steps up to the plate in the bottom of the 4th and launches a home run to the moon before it landed somewhere outside of Winston Salem. It was a monster home run!  Lakewood would not score the rest of the game.  The bottom of the ninth, Josh Adams would hit a double putting him at second base.  James Wooster steps up to the plate and launches a home run right off the score board in center field.  Making the score 4-3.  Terrence Dayleg would single, making the tying run on base, winning run at the plate.  Wilfredo Gimenez (who’s been slumping bad this year) grounds a ball straight to second base, Dayleg is tagged out at second then to first, making it a double play to end the game.  The Greensboro Grasshoppers snapped their 16 game home winning streak tonight to the Lakewood Blueclaws.  With this loss they are 30-11 on the season, and currently still 6 games ahead of second place.  So this loss really didn’t matter, in the scheme of things, lets just not make it a habit!  Tonight was pretty close to a sell out and with tomorrows giveaway, its gonna be another crowd and another GREAT DAY TO BE A HOPPER!
