Hoptown Hoppers Win Opener 8-1

The Hoptown Hoppers opened the 2014 Ohio Valley League Baseball season Friday with an 8-1 road win at Madisonville.

Catcher Taylor Ellis (Dyersburg State) had three hits, including a home run, and three runs batted in.  First baseman Ben Fisher (Eastern Kentucky) had two hits and scored twice, and Chris Brown (Stillman) and Parker Cash (Southern Union State) each doubled.

Geordie Carlson (Lipscomb), a returning Hopper from 2013, picked up the win on the mound, striking out eight in five innings of relief.

The Hoppers travel to Fulton tonight to play the Railroaders -- the team they have faced in the OVL championship series the past two seasons.  Fulton's opener at Dubois County Friday was rained out.

The Hoppers play their home opener Sunday against Owensboro at 7pm at Christian County's Colonel Field.
