Crawdads Split Home Doubleheader With BlueClaws

Special Report to Blowing Rock News. By. A. Buchbinder. July 22, 2012. HICKORY, NC - The Hickory Crawdads and Lakewood BlueClaws split Sunday's doubleheader, with Lakewood claiming the first seven-inning game, 7-3, and the 'Dads taking game two, 2-1, before 1,475 fans at L.P. Frans Stadium.

The Crawdads, BlueClaws and Hagerstown Suns are all currently tied for the top spot in the Northern Division's Second Half Standings.

Game One

After the start of the game was delayed by 55 minutes due to inclement weather, the Crawdads (16-13, 52-46) got out to a quick start with a run in the bottom of the first against LHP Lino Martinez (W, 5-4). SS Luis Sardinas led off with a single to left-center field. After stealing second base, Sardinas scored later in the inning on an RBI single from DH Zach Cone to put Hickory ahead, 1-0.

The 'Dads added a second run in the bottom of the third inning. Sardinas started the stanza with a double down the left-field line, before moving to third on a sacrifice bunt by 1B Trever Adams. 2B Rougned Odor placed an RBI base hit to left field, plating Sardinas for the 2-0 lead.

The BlueClaws (17-12, 43-55) cut the Crawdads lead in half with a run in the top of the fourth inning against LHP Will Lamb (L, 4-7). With 1B Chris Duffy at third base and two down, C Josh Ludy came through with an RBI double to cut the deficit to 2-1.

Lakewood then swung in front with six tallies in the top of the fifth inning. With two on and no outs, DH Aaron Altherr doubled in a run to tie the game. RF Kelly Dugan followed with a two-run single, before Duffy belted a two-run bomb. RHP Paul Schwendel took over on the mound and settled things down, but a final run in the inning did come in on a balk, making it 7-2.

The 'Dads came closer with an RBI single by Odor in the bottom of the fifth, but Lakewood hung on for the 7-3 win in the first half of the doubleheader.
