The Greenville Drive really needed the road trip last week as they won their first series of the year and come back to Greenville Tuesday night on a 3-game win streak. Plus, they have the hottest player in Single A SS Marcelo Mayer, the #1 prospect in the Red Sox farm system, and sure to be called up with the numbers he produced this past weekend. Mayer Sunday went 4-4 with a homerun, 2 doubles and 2 RBIs, his series vs. Asheville .516 AVG, 3 HRs, 16H, 6 2B, 12 RBIs, and 31 total bases.

Starting Tuesday night, we begin a new battle with Winston-Salem which is sure to be another great battle between two great teams. The Dash are the South Atlantic South Division leaders and will be bringing great pitching and good fire power at the plate, and Greenville will need to answer the call and rise to the occasion to win the series.
We asked our intern Alex Ingram to take some photos of South Atlantic League mascots this past month and we honestly don't know how they got these… pic.twitter.com/o2fKHA1xdj

Make sure to get out this week and support your Greenville Drive team, and great events planned all week for the community. Also, Mother’s Day Sunday will be a special day at the ballpark, so let’s give them the gift of Baseball in Greenville!
