Hickory Crawdads Blistered by Heat, Hot Rods on Sunday

The Llamas de Hickory wrapped up a six-game series with the Bowling Green Hot Rods on Sunday afternoon, dropping a 12-2 decision at LP Frans Stadium.

Jesus Moreno and Luis Mieses provided the offense for Hickory (1-2, 29-40), as the team collected six hits in the finale.

The Llamas, the Copa identity for the High-A affiliate of the Texas Rangers, were playing their fourth such game of the year.

The conclusion of the six-game series against Bowling Green (2-1, 36-31), will make the first of three separate series between the two clubs, as Hickory will travel to Kentucky for the only time this year on July 9-14. The Hot Rods will make a return trip to Hickory on August 20-25, the penultimate homestand for the Crawdads in 2024.

The Crawdads take Monday off before traveling to Greenville for a six-game set against the Drive. First pitch is set for 7:05pm at Fluor Field.
