The Hickory Crawdads wrapped up their series win against the Asheville Tourists with a 3-0 shutout win at L.P. Frans Stadium on Saturday night. Nick Martinez and Arlett Mavare combined on a three-hit shutout as the Crawdads picked up their second shutout win in the last three games. The win also leaves Hickory in a first-place tie with West Virginia in

the North Division of the South Atlantic League. Hagerstown, which is a half-game off the lead in third, begins a series with the Crawdads Monday night.
The Crawdads (27-22, 63-55) scored all the runs theyr needed in the bottom of the second inning. Zach Cone and Trever Adams got things started the stanza with back-to-back singles; Kellin Deglan then pulled a two-run double into the right field corner plating both runners for a 2-0 lead.
It became 3-0 in the bottom of the fourth inning.  With one out, Cone doubled off the left field wall before he raced home on an RBI single by Adams. Martinez (6-6) shut down the Tourists (26-23, 73-46) through six innings. He left the game following an 18-minute rain delay in the top of the seventh.  The all-star finished with three strikeouts, while scattering only two hits and walking none. Mavare finished things off and picked up his fourth save.
