Bill on Baseball: Koch Achieves 3-Homer Hat Trick

September 1, 2019 - by Bill Hass Grant Koch did something that a Hoppers' hitter hadn't accomplished in 12 years Friday night - hit three home runs in a game. The catcher, who came into the game with four home runs for the season, became the first Hoppers' batter to hit three in a game since Scott Cousins pulled off the feat on Aug. 22, 2007. Koch, batting No. 8 in the lineup, flied out in his first at-bat, then homered in the fifth, seventh and eighth innings. All were solo shots and all came on 3-and-2 counts. "When it's 3-2, it's...

Bill on Baseball: Hoppers Turn Tables with Shutout

August 28, 2019 - by Bill Hass Pitching and defense is a hard combination to beat and the Hoppers used it to their advantage Tuesday night. After dropping a 1-0 decision to Rome on Monday, they bounced back to beat the Braves 3-0. Four pitchers combined for the shutout with Steven Jennings picking up his seventh win of the season. Rome collected nine hits but, like the Hoppers the previous night, could not get one to produce a run. Greensboro's defense played a big role in that, turning four double plays. "That's a beautiful thing... Full Story
