The Hickory Crawdads stumbled out of the gate Sunday evening when the visiting Hagerstown Suns jumped ahead with four runs in the first, but the 'Dads were able to put their early problems behind them with seven unanswered runs over the next six frames to come away with a 7-5 win over the Suns at L.P. Frans Stadium.

Hagerstown ambushed Hickory starting pitcher Jonathan Hernandez for four runs in the opening frame to take a quick 4-0 lead. Undeterred, the 'Dads bats rallied for one run in the bottom of the first and three tallies in both the third and fifth frames, while Hernandez and reliever Garrett Brummett kept the Suns at bay for a 7-5 Hickory Victory.

The win gives the 'Dads a series split against the first place Suns, drawing Hickory to within 2.5 games of the South Atlantic League Northern Division lead.

The first inning barrage by Hagerstown began with a pair of infield hits by Randy Encarnacion and Kelvin Gutierrez, before a 2-RBI double from Rhett Wiseman and a 2-run home run by Jakson Reetz gave the Suns a quick 4-0 lead. The Crawdads responded with a run of their own in the home half of the frame, when Frandy De La Rosa singled, Eduard Pinto walked, and Dylan Moore delivered an RBI single to left to cut the 'Dads deficit to 4-1.

Two innings later, Hickory rallied for three more runs on two hits, two walks, a hit batter, and a passed ball to tie the score at 4-4. Sherman Lacrus started the surge with a leadoff walk, which was followed by a bunt single from Eric Jenkins and a free pass to De La Rosa to load the bases with nobody out. The first run of the frame came on a double play grounder off the bat of Pinto, before Jenkins scored on a passed ball by Suns starter Jefry Rodriguez and Tyler Sanchez came through with an RBI base knock to deadlock the game.

The Crawdads put up their second 3-run inning in the fifth, this time on back-to-back singles by De La Rosa and Pinto, an RBI double from Sanchez, and a 2-RBI base knock by Ti'Quan Forbes for a 7-4 'Dads lead. Hagerstown picked up one last tally on a solo home run by Gutierrez in the eighth before Brummett closed out the contest with a scoreless ninth for the 7-5 Crawdads win.

Hernandez (8-8) earned the win for the 'Dads after bouncing back from his first inning struggles to go six frames with four runs allowed on six hits, one walk, and five strikeouts. Brummett earned his first professional save with one run allowed on two hits and five Ks over three solid innings of relief.

Sanchez led the Hickory hitters with a 2-4 game including a double and two RBI, while Forbes finished 1-4 with 2 RBI and De La Rosa reached base four times on two singles, a walk, and a hit-by-pitch.

The Crawdads (18-17/56-49) will now welcome the Delmarva Shorebirds to L.P. Frans Stadium for a three-game series beginning Monday night at 7:00 pm.

The Hickory Crawdads ended a long day of baseball Saturday with a doubleheader split against the Hagerstown Suns, as the 'Dads took game one of the twin bill 5-3 before dropping the nightcap 6-2 in 10 innings in front of a season-high crowd of 6,022 fans at L.P. Frans Stadium.

The first game of the night was the resumption of Friday night's contest, that saw the Crawdads and Suns suspended by rain in the bottom of the second inning with the 'Dads trailing 3-0. When play resumed, the Hickory bullpen was able to shut down the Hagerstown bats with seven total scoreless frames while the 'Dads bats plated five unanswered runs to come away with a 5-3 victory.

Game two also saw the Crawdads fall behind early, with a 2-0 Suns advantage through three innings. The 'Dads rallied for a pair of runs in the fourth to tie the score at 2-2, a deadlock that would remain until the 10th when Hagerstown plated four tallies to come away wit a 6-2 win and a doubleheader split.

Hickory quickly fell behind at the start of game one on Friday night, as the Suns brought in two unearned in the first inning and another unearned tally in the second. Two errors on the same play gave Hagerstown their runs in the first, as Frandy De La Rosa misplayed a ball at second base before Sherman Lacrus bobbled the same ground ball in right field resulting in a 2-0 Suns lead. Hagerstown plated another tally in the second on a throwing error by 'Dads catcher Tyler Sanchez for a 3-0 score shortly before the rain fell and the game was suspended.

The Crawdads bullpen took the game over from that point, as Emerson Martinez, Garrett Brummett, and Jason Richman combined to toss seven scoreless innings of relief when play resumed on Saturday. The Hickory hitters got on the board in the bottom of the fifth when Yeyson Yrizarri and Ti'Quan Forbes singled to start the inning, before Yrizarri scored on a double play groundout by Connor McKay that cut the 'Dads deficit to 3-1. The Crawdads then tied the score at 3-3 in the sixth, when Eric Jenkins reached on a bunt single prior to a 2-run home run from De La Rosa.

The 'Dads followed with a go-ahead, RBI base knock by Jenkins in the seventh to take a 4-3 lead before De La Rosa scored an insurance run on an error in the eighth to give Hickory the 5-3 score they would win by.

De La Rosa finished the contest 1-3 with his fifth homer of the year, two RBI, two runs scored, and a walk. Jenkins ended the game 3-4 with an RBI, a run, and his league-leading 42nd steal of the season.

Brummett (1-0) earned the first win of his professional career after throwing a perfect seventh inning, while Richman (1) recorded the save with two shutout innings pitched. Hagerstown reliever Mariano Rivera (3-1) took the loss after giving up four runs, 3 earned, on five hits, three walks, and three strikeouts over three innings pitched.

Game two started in similar fashion for the Crawdads, as the Suns scored a run in the second on an RBI single from Edwin Lora before an RBI groundout by Kelvin Gutierrez in the second pushed the visiting team's lead to 2-0. Hickory responded in the bottom of the fourth, as Dylan Moore led off the frame with a solo home run to left prior to a two-out single from Forbes and an RBI double off the left field fence by Chuck Moorman that tied the game at 2-2.

The deadlocked score would last all the way until the 10th, as Crawdads starting pitcher Joe Palumbo settled down after the rocky start to finish with two runs allowed over six innings and a season-high-tying seven strikeouts. Reliever John Werner followed with two perfect innings out of the bullpen.

Omarlin Lopez kept the scoreless streak going with a spotless ninth inning, but the 6'3" right-hander ran into trouble in the 10th as the Suns exploded for four runs on three hits and two walks to break up the tie and take a 6-2 lead. 'Dads DH Connor McKay was eventually brought in to record the final out of the inning, marking the second time this season that the normal position player has put up a scoreless outing on the mound.

Hagerstown reliever Jake Johansen finished the game off from there, as he set the Crawdads down in the bottom of the 10th for the final 6-2 score.

Lopez (6-5) took the loss for the 'Dads after giving up four runs on three hits, two walks, and three strikeouts over 1.2 IP. Johansen (1-0) earned the win for the Suns after putting up two scoreless frames.

Jenkins finished game two with another three-hit performance, as the Hickory leadoff batter went 3-5 with a double to end the twin bill with six total hits in nine at-bats. Forbes also had a three-hit game in the nightcap, going 3-4 with a double and a run scored, while Moore ended the game 2-4 with his team-leading ninth long ball of the season.

The Crawdads (17-17/55-49) will go for the four-game series split against the Suns (21-14/64-41) in the finale Sunday evening, with first pitch scheduled for 5:00 pm.

The Hickory Crawdads' game against the Hagerstown Suns on Friday, July 29th at L.P. Frans Stadium has been suspended due to rain, with the 'Dads trailing the Suns 3-0 in the bottom of the second inning. The game will resume on Saturday, July 30th at 2:00 pm, and will be followed by the night's regularly scheduled contest.

The suspended game will be played in its entirety, while the second matchup will consist of seven innings. Any ticket from the rainout will serve as a voucher, redeemable for any 2016 Crawdads game except the sold out July 30th Chick-fil-A Christian Concert. Tickets may be exchanged by visiting the Climate Control Systems Ticket Office at the main gate.

Prior to the rain, the Crawdads fell behind 3-0 as a result of two unearned runs for the Suns in the first inning and another unearned tally in the second. Two errors on the same play gave Hagerstown their runs in the first, as Frandy De La Rosa misplayed a ball at second base before Sherman Lacrus bobbled the same ground ball in right field resulting in a 2-0 Suns lead. Hagerstown plated another tally in the second on a throwing error by 'Dads catcher Tyler Sanchez for the 3-0 score.

The two teams began play in the bottom of the second inning before the game was suspended with Dylan Moore batting in a 3-2 count to lead off the frame.

The suspended game comes on the second day of a weeklong homestand for the Crawdads, who will be at L.P. Frans Stadium through Wednesday, August 3rd. The 'Dads will play the Suns three more games before welcoming the Delmarva Shorebirds to town for a 3-game series.

Lenoir-Rhyne University has announced the hiring of Carlee Buck as Head Women’s Lacrosse Coach this afternoon.

Buck comes to Lenoir-Rhyne after serving as Assistant Women’s Lacrosse Coach and Recruiting Coordinator for NCAA Division II-power Limestone in Gaffney, S.C., for the past four years (2013-16).

In those four seasons, the Saints compiled a 68-10 record and advanced to the NCAA Division II National Championship game in 2013. In addition, Limestone won four Conference Carolinas Championships and produced 15 IWLCA All-Americans.

“We believe Carlee is the ideal choice to lead the Bears’ women’s lacrosse program forward,” said Kim Pate, Lenoir-Rhyne’s Director of Intercollegiate Athletics. “We are very fortunate to be able to attract one of the top NCAA Division II assistants in the region. Carlee brings tremendous experience having played at a high level and coached in a nationally-contending Division II program in Limestone.”

“She brings incredible passion for coaching and impacting young people’s lives. Her coaching philosophy truly embodies a commitment to student-athlete development focused on young people reaching their full potential both on and off the field. I feel confident that the program will excel under the Carlee’s leadership as we look to take our program to the next level.”

Prior to Limestone, Buck coached at Fresno State in Fresno, California, for four years (2009-12). Buck was an assistant for three seasons (2009-10, 2012) and served as interim head coach for the 2011 campaign. Buck was instrumental in the growth of the NCAA Division I program which began competition in 2009.

Buck also coached and taught at St. Margaret’s School in Bushey, England, for one academic year (2007-08) and is a certified United States Lacrosse Level 3 Local Rated Official.

“I am honored to become the next Head Women’s Lacrosse Coach at Lenoir-Rhyne and look forward to building on their existing foundation as a contender in the South Athletic Conference,” said Buck. “Both the athletic department and University strive for success in every aspect of the student athlete experience and I want to thank Kim Pate (Athletics Director), Dr. Wayne Powell (University President) and the search committee for giving me the opportunity to be a part of their exciting future.

“I am grateful to Limestone College Director of Athletics Mike Cerino and the entire Saints Athletics family for everything they have done to support my growth over the past four years to help prepare me for this opportunity.”

Buck was a four-year player for Stony Brook University (2004-07) in Stony Brook, N.Y., where she started all 65 games in her career for the Seawolves and finished with 92 goals, 133 assists and 225 points. Buck was an All-American East Conference First Team selection twice (2005 and 2007) and led the nation in assists per game in 2005. Buck graduated from Stony Brook in 2007 with a bachelor’s degree in sociology.

“As coaches, an unwritten part of our job description is to inspire our players,” added Buck. “I feel incredibly fortunate to have spent the past eight years being part of two very special programs with players who have inspired me. I would like to especially thank Limestone Head Women’s Lacrosse Coach Scott Tucker and all of the exceptional coaches and mentors who have played a significant role in my development as a coach.”

Buck replaces Clare Gaeng, who resigned after two years as Bears’ mentor to take over as Head Coach of Queens University in Charlotte earlier this month. For three straight seasons, the Bears have placed second in the league regular season standings and earned a berth in the South Atlantic Conference Tournament Championship.

Tristin Van Ord , a standout on the Appalachian State women’s track and field team, and Stanley Broaden and Nathan Milch from the men's team, were selected as a U.S. Track and Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA) all-academic honoree, announced by the USTFCCCA on Thursday.

A total of 910 women from 192 institutions and 570 men from 161 institutions earned USTFCCCA all-academic honors during the 2015-16 track and field season. To qualify for the all-academic team, a student-athlete must have compiled a cumulative GPA of 3.25 and have met at least one of the following athletic standards:

• For the indoor season, a student-athlete must have finished the regular season ranked in the national top 96 for an individual event or ranked in the national top 48 (collective listin) in a relay event on the official POP list provided by TFRRs.org.

• For the outdoor season, a student-athlete must have participated in any round of the NCAA Division I championships (including preliminary rounds).

At the 2016 Sun Belt Championships, Van Ord won the 10,000-meter run with a time of 35:47.91. She won her second event of the championship meet with a first place finish in the 5,000-meters with a time of 17:00.04. Van Ord’s time in the 5,000-meter run set a new Sun Belt meet record.

Van Ord qualified for the NCAA East Region preliminaries and participated in the 10,000-meter run. She finished 21st with a time of 35:22.10 and did not advance.

At the 2016 Sun Belt Championships, Broaden won the 400-meter hurdles with a time of 50.67 and also took second in the 110-meter hurdles with a time of 14.04. Broaden’s time in the 400 hurdles was a personal-best and good for second all-time in program history. At the time, Broaden’s finish in the 400 hurdles was ninth-best in the NCAA East Region and 16th in the country.

At the NCAA East Region preliminaries in Jacksonville, Fla., Broaden advanced to the quarterfinals of the 400 hurdles with a time of 52.20. He would not be able to advance past the quarterfinals.

Milch took third place in the shot out at the Sun Belt Championships with a personal-best throw of 56-6. That throw placed Milch third on the all-time program list. Milch did not advance at the NCAA East Region prelims.

The Hickory Crawdads found themselves in a battle of the bullpens Thursday night against the Hagerstown Suns, but after a promising start to the showdown the 'Dads pen faltered with four runs allowed in the eighth inning resulting in a 9-5 loss at L.P. Frans Stadium.

Neither starting pitcher escaped the fifth frame, necessitating both the Crawdads and Suns to turn to their respective bullpens early. The 'Dads were the immediate benefactor of the move, as Hickory plated two runs in the bottom of the fifth against reliever Jacob Howell to take a 5-4 lead. Hagerstown came back with a solo home run by Rhett Wiseman against Blake Bass in the seventh to tie the score, before the visiting team split the deadlock and pulled away with a four-run eighth off of Omarlin Lopez to hand the Crawdads the 9-5 defeat.

The Suns took the initial lead in the game with a pair of runs in the second, courtesy of RBI doubles by both Matthew Page and Telmito Agustin off of Hickory starter Dillon Tate for a 2-0 score. The Crawdads responded with two runs of their own in the bottom of the second when Ti'Quan Forbes reached on a 2-out, infield single before Chuck Moorman launched a game-tying, 2-run home run to left-center field to deadlock the game at 2-2.

Hagerstown retook the advantage in the third on an RBI sacrifice fly by Page, but once again the 'Dads came back with a run on a triple from Frandy De La Rosa and an RBI sacrifice fly by Eduard Pinto to tie the score at 3-3.

The Suns took another lead in the top of the fourth, this time on a double by Edwin Lora and an RBI base knock from Agustin to put the visitors ahead 4-3. That advantage lasted until the bottom of the fifth, when Pinto and Dylan Moore reached on a walk and a hit-by-pitch respectively before both baserunners ultimately scored on a pair of wild pitches by Howell that gave the Crawdads a 5-4 lead.

The 'Dads held the advantage until the top of the seventh, when Bass allowed a two-out, solo homer to Wiseman to tie the game at 5-5. The Suns then took their decisive lead in the eighth, with an RBI single from Ian Sagdal and a 3-RBI double by Wiseman giving Hagerstown the 9-5 lead they would win by.

Lopez (6-4) took the loss for the Crawdads after allowing four runs on four hits, one walk, and two strikeouts over one inning pitched. Howell (1-0) earned the win for Hagerstown after settling down from a rocky fifth frame and going 2.2 scoreless innings with one hit, one walk, and four strikeouts.

Moorman (3-4, HR, 2 RBI) and De La Rosa (3-5, 3B, R) both had 3-hit nights to pace the 'Dads bats, while Forbes finished 2-4 with a run scored.

The Crawdads (16-16/54-48) will look to bounce back against the Suns (20-13/63-40) in game two of their 4-game series Friday night, with first pitch scheduled for 7:00 pm.

Appalachian State University football continue to rack up preseason watch list recognitions as quarterback Taylor Lamb (Calhoun, Ga./Calhoun) was named to the College Football Performance Award Preseason Watch List on Wednesday.

Lamb is one of 32 student-athletes across the nation to receive preseason recognition while just one of 22 quarterbacks to be on the list. The App State signal caller is also the lone quarterback to represent the Sun Belt and one of only two student-athletes overall (Matt Breida - Georgia Southern - RB) from the league.

It’s no surprise Lamb is on another watch list after being recognized by the Davey O’Brien Committee earlier in the summer. The junior enjoyed one of the best seasons at the quarterback position in App State history, where he threw for a single-season school record 31 touchdowns passes, surpassing Appalachian State and SoCon Hall of Famer Armani Edwards’ 30 touchdown tosses in 2008. The 31 touchdowns through the air ranked first in the Sun Belt and ninth in the nation. He also threw just nine picks, which led to more than a 3:1 touchdown-to-interception ratio.

His 2,387 passing yards were good for 10th in App State history and third in the league. He also ranked fourth in the conference in total offense with 2,823 yards. His 2015 performance led to an honorable-mention all-Sun Belt award. Lamb’s impressive 160.7 passing efficiency was the 10th highest in the nation. Lamb tossed at least one touchdown in every game last season while throwing at least three touchdown passes in six contests.

Lamb is the second student-athlete on the team (Marcus Cox; Maxwell, Doak Walker) to be named to his second preseason watch list, while it’s the seventh preseason watch list a Mountaineer has been named to. Lamb (CFPA, Davey O’Brien), Darian Small (Wuerffel), Barrett Burns (John Mackey) and Parker Collins (Outland) all have received preseason recognition.

Coming off an impressive 11-2 campaign in 2015 with a Camellia Bowl win over Ohio (31-29) and setting the record for the most wins in the Sun Belt, the Mountaineers return 17 starters. App State opens up the 2016 season on the road against Tennessee in Knoxville on Thursday, Sept. 1.

After last season’s impressive season, the Mountaineers were picked first in the Sun Belt last week. Fall practice is also around the corner starting on Saturday following App State Media Day.
