Alejandro Selen knocked in a run with a single with two outs in the sixth inning to break a 1-1 tie, and host Hickory went on to beat the Lexington Legends 3-1 Friday in the first game of a doubleheader.
The second game was suspended by rain with the Crawdads leading 2-0 in the bottom of the third inning. That game will be finished Saturday at 5 p.m., followed by a regularly scheduled game.
In Friday's first game, Lexington starting pitcher Mike Foltynewicz (4-7) lost for the first time since May 11. He allowed only two runs pitching 51⁄3 innings of the seven-inning game.
The Crawdads took a 1-0 lead in the bottom of the first inning and it stayed that way until the sixth inning Lexington's Telvin Nash hit a sacrifice fly to drive in Ben Orloff to tie the game.
But the Crawdads answered with two runs in the bottom of the sixth. After Selen drove in the tiebreaker, he scored on a triple by Yefry Castillo.
Hickory reliever Jimmy Reyes (3-0) got the win.
