Terry's homer leads Hickory to 6-4 win over Asheville
HICKORY, N.C. (AP) -- Curtis Terry hit a three-run home run in the fourth inning, leading the Hickory Crawdads to a 6-4 win over the Asheville Tourists on Wednesday.
The home run by Terry scored Frainyer Chavez and Matt Whatley to give the Crawdads a 3-2 lead.
The Crawdads later added two runs in the fifth and one in the eighth. In the fifth, Miguel Aparicio hit a two-run home run, while Terry hit an RBI single in the eighth.
Asheville saw its comeback attempt come up short after Willie MacIver hit a two-run home run in the ninth inning to cut the Hickory lead to 6-4.
Hickory right-hander Hans Crouse (2-0) picked up a quality start and the win after allowing two runs on just three hits over 6 2/3 innings. Opposing starter Shelby Lackey (0-2) took the loss in the South Atlantic League game after he allowed five runs on just three hits over five innings.
