Greensboro took an early lead in the second inning thanks in part to Avery Romero's home run, but the success was short-lived. Two Hickory home runs in the fourth inning gave the Crawdads a lead that they held for the remainder of the game. The Grasshoppers only managed to score three runs, despite earning 11 hits.
