OK, when the Hoppers and Crawdads finish their 3-game series, there will still be 43 games to play in the first half of the South Atlantic League season, so you can’t read too much into it yet.

But it will still be fun. Greensboro and Hickory are tied for first place in the Atlantic Division with records of 16-8, so someone will have at least a one-game lead by the conclusion of the series. The teams played four games in Hickory recently and split. This series is the last meeting between the teams in this half, so whoever wins the series will have an advantage in a tie-breaker situation.

Charlie Lowell is scheduled to pitch the Wednesday morning game (10:45 start on the first of two days for school kids), followed by the Austin Brice/Jose Urena tandem Thursday and Adam Conley on Friday. They are all important starts, but Conley’s is particularly interesting to see how he reacts to getting knocked around for the first time this season in his last start.
