Hickory Crawdads Win Pitchers Dual Over Wilmington

The Hickory Crawdads won 1-0 to wrap up the road series against the Wilmington Blue Rocks Sunday.

At the top of the third, the only score of the night come from the  Crawdads when Christian Inoa hit a sacrifice fly to center field, sending Scott Kapers home. He had reached base due to a walk.

Hickory’s starting pitcher, Tekoah Roby, would be credited with the win. He went five innings, allowing only three hits and striking out five while walking only two.

Marc Church was credited with a hold after pitching two innings while striking out two and no base runners.

Juan Mejia also had a hold after his one inning of relief, allowing only one hit. Spencer Mraz got his second save of the season after a hitless ninth inning.

The foursome combined to throw only 112 pitches in the contest.

Hickory is 6-9 on the season. The Crawdads are off on Monday and will be at L.P. Frans Stadium starting Tuesday when they have a six game series against the Greenville Drive.
