'Dads beat 'Hoppers, 7-6, for second-straight day
For the second-straight day, the Hickory Crawdads picked up a 7-6 road victory over the Greensboro Grasshoppers on Tuesday.
The Crawdads remain undefeated in the month of July, improving to 10-3 in the second half and 46-36 overall.
'Dads pitcher Jerad Eickhoff picked up his 10th in of the season — the first Crawdad to accomplish the feat this season.
