Friday at L P Frans Stadium was a clinic in how errors can beat you no matter how well you play offensively. The young Hickory Crawdads team will do well to remember this game for the terrible feeling it left them with and the desire to not repeat issues that caused it to occur.
The 9-4 loss to the Asheville Tourists, the affiliate of the Colorado Rockies could have ended differently. The Crawdads bats were alive most of the night with a mighty 13 hits. Yet they weren’t the only ones who were batting as the Tourists were able to get 11 hits.
