Winning pitcher Santo Perez limited Kannapolis to just three hits as the Hickory Crawdads (18-11) defeated the Intimidators 5-3 Sunday night at CMC-Northeast Stadium. Perez went seven innings and gave up one earned run with six strikeouts. Two of the three runs Perez gave up were unearned thanks to a

pair of Crawdads errors in the first inning. The only real blemish was a first-inning home run by Kevan Smith of the Intimidators.
The Intimidators (12-17), thanks to Smith and Hickory's generosity, built an early 3-0 lead. But the Crawdads finally got things going in the third inning by scoring three times. Kellin Deglan sparked the comeback with a lead-off double. Joe Maloney followed with a two-run homer that made it, 3-2. One-out later, Luis Sardinas walked and moved to second on a single by Chris Grayson. Hanser Alberto doubled and scored Sardinas with the tying run.
Jordan Akins gave Hickory a 4-3 lead with a solo home run in the sixth, and Zach Cone homered in the ninth to close out the scoring. Meanwhile, Perez had it in cruise control as he retired 14 men in a row during one stretch before leaving the game. Greg Williams came on in the eighth and retired all six men he faced for his third save of the year.
