Change name in files

I have a list of file names in a struct like this; 'Avg: 11_right | bl | _HLG_MOD (92 files) | _HGH'
How do I move '| _HGH' to before '(92 files)' so that I get; 'Avg: 11_right | bl | _HLG_MOD | _HGH (92 files)' for an entire list when the number of files is different for each entry?
I thought about using something like; strrep(OldComment, '(92 files) | _HGH', ' | _HGH (92 files) '); but the number of files changes across file names. Is there a way to amend this code to ignore the number of files?

S = 'Avg: 11_right | bl | _HLG_MOD (92 files) | _HGH'
S = 'Avg: 11_right | bl | _HLG_MOD (92 files) | _HGH'
T = regexprep(S, ' (\(.*\))\s*(.*)$', ' $2 $1')
T = 'Avg: 11_right | bl | _HLG_MOD | _HGH (92 files)'
Please check that the spacing is correct for your purposes
