GREENSBORO, N.C. (AP) -- Jack Herman homered and had two hits, driving in two as the host Greensboro Grasshoppers topped the Hickory Crawdads 5-2 on Monday.

Greensboro started the scoring in the first inning when Lolo Sanchez scored when a runner was thrown out and Mason Martin scored on a single.

Playing its first game since Thursday due to rain, Hickory (38-23) answered in the top of the next frame when Jose Almonte hit a two-run home run to tie it up.

The Grasshoppers took the lead for good in the second when Herman hit an RBI single, scoring Patrick Dorrian.

Greensboro right-hander Osvaldo Bido (7-4) picked up a quality start and the win after allowing two runs on just three hits over six innings. Opposing starter Cole Winn (0-3) took the loss in the South Atlantic League game after a rough outing in which he allowed five runs and seven hits over four innings.

Despite the loss, Hickory is 6-2 against Greensboro this season.
