The Humboldt Crabs split two games against the Seattle Studs over the weekend to secure the four-game series.

The Crabs, who took the opening two games on Thursday and Friday, won 8-4 on Saturday night, before dropping the series finale 3-2 in a close game on Sunday.

Merek Sears pitched six strong innings for the win on the mound on Saturday, his first in a Crabs uniform.

The former Arcata Tiger allowed just two hits and two walks and struck out two.

After giving up an early run, the Crabs took control of the game with four runs in each of the fourth and fifth innings to lead 8-1.

Javier Felix hit a grand slam home run in the win and also had a triple, while Tyler Davis also had a home run.

The Studs, however, avoided the series sweep with a one-run win on Sunday.

Nick Perryman got the start for the Cabs and allowed seven hits in four innings for the loss.

The Crabs, who are now 8-3, will hit the road for five games this week, playing the Yuba-Sutter Gold Sox on Wednesday and Thursday, before three weekend games at the Lincoln Potters.
