The Hoppers but their losing streak to bed last night with a 6-3 victory over the Muhlenburg County Stallions. Brian Coffey took the win for the Hoppers, pitching eight innings and approaching hitting 100 pitches by the end of the game. Coffey allowed only 3 runs on 6 hits, striking out 7 and walking none. Coffey was followed by Hassan Westbrook, who pitched one inning and retired the Stallions to end the game.
Max Remy grounded out in the first inning, driving in a run and getting the Hoppers on the board. The Hoppers later pulled ahead for good in the top of the third inning with two runs-one each from Blake Jackson and Aidan Elias. The Hoppers continued to battle, scoring three additional runs in the top of the fourth-again from Jackson and Remy.
The Stallions attempted to come back with a home run late in the eighth inning, but were ultimately unable to overcome the Hoppers.
Thank you to the Stallions for hosting us, our next game will be a home game against the Owensboro RiverDawgs on June 21st, first pitch at 7:05 p.m.
