The Hoptown Hoppers played their third consecutive one run game last night, but came up on the short end of a 3-2 decision to the Paducah Chiefs at Brooks Stadium.
It was a scoreless game until the Chiefs plated two runs in the bottom of the fifth inning. The Hoppers tied the game at 2-2 in the sixth thanks in part to an RBI single by Blake Jackson. Paducah then broke the tie with a sacrifice fly in the bottom of the 8th.
The Hoppers had only five hits with the Chiefs collecting four. Ryan Traylor in relief of Sage Holderfield took the loss for the Hoppers, now 13-9 on the season.
Hoptown returns home this evening to face Henderson at 7:05 with pregame at 6:45 on News Radio 95.3 FM/1230 AM WHOP and whopam.com.
