The Hickory Crawdads began their 4-game homestand and series against the Rome Braves by being shutout for the first time all season on Thursday, as the 'Dads were held scoreless on a season-low 2 hits resulting in a 3-0 defeat at L.P. Frans Stadium.
The 1st place Crawdads began the night with a leadoff single from Eric Jenkins in the top of the 1st inning before going six hitless frames prior to a double by new 'Dad Josh Altmann in the 8th. All together, the Crawdads ended the game with four total baserunners including walks drawn by Jenkins and Dylan Moore.
The primary culprit in shutting down the 'Dads bats was Braves starting pitcher Mike Soroka, who earned his first win of the year after tossing 5.2 scoreless innings on 1 hit, 2 walks, and 5 strikeouts. Hickory starter Jonathan Hernandez began the night matching Soroka zero for zero before Rome capitalized on a Crawdads error in the 4th to score an unearned run for a 1-0 advantage.
Hernandez struck out the first batter of the frame before issuing a walk to Juan Yepez. Hernandez then induced a ground ball to second from Lucas Herbert, but 'Dads second baseman Andy Ibanez booted the potential double play ball to put two on with one out. Leudys Baez followed with a walk to load the bases before Alejandro Salazar lined a sacrifice fly to center to put the Braves up 1-0.
The Rome lead doubled to 2-0 in the 6th, when Hickory reliever Omarlin Lopez allowed a one-out single to Yepez, followed by an RBI double from Herbert. The Braves then tacked on their final tally in the top of the 9th, with consecutive one-out singles from Baez and Salazar preceding a fielding error by Crawdads shortstop Yeyson Yrizarri to load the bases. One out later, Austin Riley lined an RBI single to left off of reliever Blake Bass for the final 3-0 score.
Soroka (1-3) earned the win for Rome, while Hernandez (4-2) had his 4-game winning streak snapped with a loss after allowing 1 unearned run on four hits, three walks, and four strikeouts over four innings pitched. Braves reliever A.J. Minter (1) recorded the save with a perfect 9th inning.
Jenkins was the only Hickory hitter to reach base safely multiple times, as he finished 1-3 with a walk and his league-leading 18th steal of the year. Altmann went 1-3 with a double while making his 'Dads debut.
The Crawdads (22-11) will take on the Braves (12-21) again on Friday in game two of their 4-game set, with a scheduled first pitch of 7:00 pm at L.P. Frans Stadium.

The Hickory Crawdads broke open a tie game with a big rally in the top of the 9th inning before desperately clinging to the lead in the bottom of the frame Tuesday afternoon, as the 'Dads ended the day with the tying and winning runs in scoring position to escape with a 7-6 win over the Charleston RiverDogs at Joseph P. Riley Jr. Park.
The 'Dads and 'Dogs entered the final frame carrying a 3-3 tie since the 5th. The Crawdads split the tie and took a seemingly safe lead when they got to Charleston reliever Jose Mesa for 4 runs on 3 hits, 2 walks, and a strikeout wild pitch to take a 7-3 lead. The RiverDogs refused to go down quietly in the home half of the 9th though, as they struck for 3 runs on 3 hits and 2 walks to bring the score to 7-6 with the tying run on third base and the potential winning tally at second.
Hickory was finally able to escape the frame and end the game when Jeffrey Springs struck out Chris Gittens looking at the plate to preserve the Crawdads 7-6 victory.
The win also gave the 'Dads the series win over the 'Dogs 3 games to 1, while improving the club's South Atlantic League-best record to 22-10.
Prior to the 9th inning drama, the Crawdads put together an early 3-0 lead with two runs in the 3rd and one in the 4th. Yeyson Yrizarri started the rally in the 3rd with an infield single followed by a steal of second base, before he came in to score on a fielding error by Charleston third baseman Thairo Estrada. Andy Ibanez reached on the same error, and came home two batters later on an RBI base knock to left by Tyler Sanchez that put Hickory ahead 2-0.
The 'Dads lead grew the 3-0 the next frame when Ti'Quan Forbes reached on a double to right and came in three batters later on an RBI groundout from Yrizarri. That looked to be enough support for Crawdads starter Pedro Payano, who shutout the RiverDogs over the first 4 innings on two hits. The 'Dogs got to the Hickory hurler in the 5th however, plating 3 runs on 4 hits to chase Payano from the game and tie the score at 3-3.
The contest remained deadlocked from there, with 'Dads relievers Joe Palumbo and John Werner combining to keep Charleston off the board in the 6th, 7th, and 8th. That set the stage for the chaotic 9th.
Frandy De La Rosa got things started when he reached on a one-out, infield single. Forbes followed with a hard ground ball to short that took a dramatic hop, ricocheted off of shortstop Kyle Holder's face, and careened into left field allowing De La Rosa to go to third and Forbes to reach first base safely. Following the lucky bounce, Chris Garia came through with a pinch hit, RBI groundout that gave Hickory a 4-3 lead.
From there Darius Day walked and Yrizarri reached on a strikeout wild pitch to load the bases for Eric Jenkins, who followed with an RBI walk that pushed the 'Dads advantage to 5-3. Ibanez then capped the big inning with a 2-RBI single to left to make the score 7-3.
Charleston went right to work dismantling Hickory's lead in the bottom on the 9th however, with a single by Holder and a walk to Kendall Coleman followed one out later with a walk from Audie Afenir to load the bases. Ninth place batter Leonardo Molina then delivered a 2-RBI single to left that cut the score to 7-5 and ran Werner from the game.
Springs entered and struck out his first batter before allowing an RBI double to Hoy Jun Park that made the score 7-6 and put the tying and go-ahead runs at third and second base respectively with two outs. With the game on the line, Springs was finally able to squelch the rally with a caught-looking strikeout of Gittens for a 7-6 Hickory victory.
Werner (1-1) earned the win with 3 runs allowed on 2 hits, 2 walks, and 2 strikeouts over 1 inning pitched, while Springs (2) earned the save for recording the final two outs. Mesa (0-2) took the loss after giving up 4 runs on 2 hits, 3 walks, and 5 Ks over 1.2 IP.
Both Forbes (3-5, 2B, 2 R) and Yrizarri (3-6, RBI, 2 R) finished with 3-hit games, while Ibanez went 1-4 with 2 RBI, 2 walks, and a run scored.
The Crawdads (22-10) now have an off day on Wednesday before returning home to Hickory for a 4-game series against the Rome Braves beginning Thursday night at 6:00 pm at L.P. Frans Stadium.

The Hickory Crawdads followed up two standout performances against the Charleston RiverDogs with an off night on Monday, as the 'Dads lost their first game of the series 8-3 at Joseph P. Riley Jr. Park.
The Crawdads won their first two games against the 'Dogs 5-3 and 7-2, before Charleston bounced back with 8 runs on 12 hits offensively while also holding the 'Dads to 3 runs, 1 earned, on three hits from the mound. The loss snaps the Crawdads 4-game win streak; the third such streak this season for the division leading 'Dads.
Hickory jumped out to the initial lead in the ballgame, as the Crawdads used a one-out single by Chris Garia and three errors by the RiverDogs to score an unearned run in the 1st for a 1-0 score. Charleston quickly responded in the bottom of the frame however, as the 'Dogs got to 'Dads starting pitcher Brett Martin for 3 runs on 4 hits to take a 3-1 lead.
Martin settled down and put up scoreless innings in the 2nd and 3rd, biding time for the Crawdads offense which delivered a run in the top of the 4th to cut the deficit to 3-2. Andy Ibanez started the frame with a leadoff double off the wall in left. Two outs later, Ibanez was able to score when he took third base on a passed ball before coming home to score on a wild pitch.
The RiverDogs came back with a run of their own in the home half of the inning, as Angel Aguilar singled, advanced to second on an infield popup from Leonardo Molina that fell in for a hit, took third on a wild pitch, and ultimately scored on an RBI single by Eduardo Nava to make the score 4-2.
The 'Dads attempted one last rally in the top of the 6th when Tyler Sanchez reached on a strikeout passed ball and came home one out later on an RBI single by Ti'Quan Forbes to bring the deficit to 4-3. The 'Dogs once again had an answer however, as Charleston plated 3 runs on 3 hits and two walks off of Hickory reliever Dillon Tate to pull away with a 7-3 lead. The RiverDogs brought home their final tally in the 7th, with an RBI double by Jeff Hendrix off of Blake Bass, giving Charleston their final 8-3 score.
'Dogs starting pitcher Yefrey Ramirez (1-0) earned the win with 2 runs allowed, 1 earned run, on two hits, one walk, and 5 strikeouts. Martin (1-2) took the loss for the 'Dads after allowing 4 runs on 7 hits, one walk, and 4 Ks over 5 IP.
Forbes ended the game as the only Hickory hitter to reach base safely multiple times, going 1-2 with an RBI and two hit-by-pitches. Ibanez finished 1-4 with his minor league-leading 16th double of the season.
The Crawdads (21-10) will go for the series win over the RiverDogs (20-10) Tuesday morning, with an 11:05 am first pitch.
