The Hickory Crawdads topped the Greensboro Grasshoppers 4-2, in 13 innings on Sunday evening at NewBridge Bank Park in Greensboro, N.C. Hickory battled backed from 1-0, and 2-1 deficits to tie the game. The Crawdads scored the tying run in the top of the sixth. Alejandro Selen drove in the tying run with a sacrifice fly. And the game remained tied until the

top of the 13th inning. The 'Dads (8-3; 44-36) finally broke through against losing pitcher Chris Shafer (1-2).  With one out, Jordan Akins lined a double to right field, and he scored on an RBI double by Rougned Odor off the left-field wall.  Luis Sardinas advanced Odor to third with a bunt single, and Chris Grayson's sacrifice fly  plated Odor for a 4-2 lead. Taylor Dennis (1-0), who logged three scoreless relief innings in his Hickory debut, picked up the win. Daniel Lopez (1) slammed the door in the bottom of the 13th for his first save.
