The Hickory Crawdads topped the Greensboro Grasshoppers, 5-4, before 2,039 fans at L.P. Frans Stadium on Thursday night.  With the win, the 'Dads move into sole possession of first place in the Northern Division

standings. Rougned Odor capped off a huge comeback as he won the game with a two-run homer run in the bottom of the seventh inning. The Crawdads hit three home runs on the night as they wiped out a 4-0 deficit.
Jeremy Williams hit a two-run homer in the fifth inning that made it 4-2; Kellin Deglin's solo shot in the sixth made it 4-3. Phil Klein threw two scoreless innings and picked up his second win of the year; Jose Monegro came on in the ninth and escaped a bases-loaded jam for his first save of the season. He struck out the last two batters he faced to nail it down for the Crawdads.
Odor was Hickory's most productive hitter with two hits and two runs-batted-in in four trips; Williams had one hit, his two-run shot in the fifth, and he scored twice. Former Mountaineer Rand Smith, playing for the Grasshoppers, went hitless in six trips. The teams will wrap up their four-game series tonight at L.P. Fran Stadium beginning at 7 p.m.
