Hickory Crawdads Split Doubleheader With Winston-Salem

Winston-Salem and Hickory split a doubleheader on Sunday. Winston-Salem won the first game, 5-1. Hickory would take game two, 4-0.

In game one, Hickory got the ball rolling early, before rain postponed the beginning of game one back on Friday. Cody Freeman had an RBI single to bring in Luisangel Acuna. After that, the game was postponed in the top of the third due to rain.

When the game resumed on Sunday morning, Owen White was on the mound for Hickory and was dominant. White fanned eight Dash hitters across four innings, but ran into trouble in the seventh when the Dash scored all five of their runs in the inning to win, 5-1.

In game two, Hickory struck first again. In the top of the first inning, Freeman singled to drive in Aaron Zavala. Another run plated in the second inning when Jake Guenther hit a sacrifice fly, scoring Chris Seise.

The Crawdads added two more runs in the sixth, thanks to a Seise double. That score made it a 4-0 Crawdads advantage which was the final score.

Hickory starter Mason Englert held the Dash to just two hits in 5.1 innings pitched. Englert was the winner for the Crawdads, while Matt Thompson took the loss.
