Triad, NC - Opening Day in the Triad was a celebration of the two full-season minor league affiliates. The Winston-Salem Dash opened up the year for the first time at home in BB&T Ballpark. The Greensboro Grasshoppers hosted the Hickory Crawdads at NewBridge Bank Park.
The Hoppers jumped out to a 3-1 lead, but a four-run rally by the Crawdads left Greensboro with an 8-3 loss.
The Dash also lost in their Opening Day game to the Wilmington Blue Rocks 3-1.
Both teams are at home on Friday for a seven o'clock first pitch.
