Beavers-Hoppers Game Suspended in 8th Inning
May 19th, 2019
UTICA, Mich. – The game between the Birmingham Bloomfield Beavers and Eastside Diamond Hoppers on Sunday, May 19 was suspended in the eighth inning with the score tied at 1-1 at Jimmy John’s Field. The game will be continued at a later date.
TJ Ward doubled to left-center field with one out in the bottom of the eighth inning to give the Beavers a runner in scoring position. With a 3-1 count on Alec Olund, the game was halted as heavy rains came.
Starting pitchers Gerry Salisbury (Beavers) and Noah Gotsis (Hoppers) were dynamite on the mound, each throwing 6.0 strong innings. Salisbury allowed just two hits and fanned five, while Gotsis gave up five hits and struck out five.
The Diamond Hoppers wore specialty jerseys and fans can still bid on the Lego unicorms by clicking here. The auction will end on Friday, May 24th, and proceeds will go to Make-A-Wish® Michigan.
