Hagerstown tied it in the 4th with an infield single and an RBI ground out, but Greensboro answered those two runs with two of their own in the bottom of the fifth to take a 5-3 lead. Greensboro would give one run back on an error and a run coming in on a double play, but otherwise the Grasshopper bullpen was stifling, allowing just two hits over four innings while striking out eight. Starter Josh Smoker’s generosity to the opposition continued with three runs allowed on five hits, including a home run. He walked three and struck out one.

Lowell would extend the lead to 4-2 in the 4th. Vermont could only muster an unearned run in the 7th as Lowell won 4-3. Starter Colin Bates was stung for 11 hits over his five innings, allowing four runs (two earned) in the loss.
