Closing Games Haunts Mudcats in Losing Streak
On a beautiful night at Five County Stadium, Carolina Mudcats pitcher Jacob Lee challenged the Red Sox batters through the sixth inning, though Salem caught up with him in the seventh inning. After a great start, both offensively and defensively, the momentum slowed and the Mudcats inability to consistently close games haunted them yet again as Salem took the late lead and the 5-4 victory.

Fishing for Mudcats: Jordan Smith finds his groove
The Carolina Mudcats continue to hit the ball well, but the fact that they can't seem to drive in runs combined with a pitching staff that has a hard time not allowing runs has left the Muddies with a bad mix for winning. Jordan Smith, Luigi Rodriguez, Jerrud Sabourin and Cody Anderson carried the team this week, but not far enough for a winning record in week 5. Go fishing with the Jim Pete and your Carolina Mudcats...
