Friday The 13th Proves Too Scary For Hagerstown; Hoppers win 7-2

The theme tonight was Halloween night.  Being that it was Friday the 13th and the stadium is located right off Elm Street it had all the makings for a cheesy horror flick.  And in some ways it was rather cheesy.  You could catch pirates, clowns, pimps, and even waldo (If you could find him…) walking around and taking in the game.  The names on the scoreboard were even put to a cool halloween background .

Jim Scott, pictured above, was definitely in rare form today.  He was dressed as Superfly or quite simply, a pimp.

Looks like Spaz found Waldo!

Austin Brice was the starting pitcher on the mound tonight.  He would throw 5 scoreless innings, allowing 2 hits and 5 strikeouts.  He would be relieved by Kevin Cravey who pitched one inning and allowed 1 hit.  Daniel Oliver would then come in to pitch 2 innings, allowing 3 hits and 2 strikeouts.  Next up would walk Greg Nappo who would throw 1 inning and three straight strikeouts for a combined total of 10 strikeouts.  That’s a lot of K’s on the board for Don Moore and his crew at the “JETS PIZZA K ZONE”.

The game was tied at zero until the bottom of the fourth inning when an inning full of errors happened.  The Hoppers would come in to score 6 runs that inning.  Batters to cross the plate were Aaron Senne, Ryan Reiger, James Wooster, Tony Caldwell, Austin Nola, and Terrence Dayleg.

With all the costumes and scary figures around tonight I guess Friday the 13th was just too scary for Hagerstown.  Hagerstown would never lead in this one.  Hoppers take the win easily 7-2.  With tonights win the Hoppers move to 8-14 in the second half and only 6 games back!  The Hoppers are back in action tomorrow night facing the Kannapolis Intimidators.  And as always… IT’S A GREAT TIME TO BE A HOPPER!!
