Both teams improved to 3-2 in their latest matchups, but Southern Standard may have gone the other way if not for Hobbs.It seemed like Hobbs’ night from the first pitch. In the top of the first, Hobbs roped a lead-off double off Security Federal starter Pedro Mendez.Hobbs would be one of three Southern Standard players to cross the plate in the first inning as Trad Grizzle and Mathew Colongione turned walks into runs.
