Mudcats come back, but lose in ninth
Looking to bounce back after a disappointing road trip in which the Carolina Mudcats went 2-4, the Mudcats (6-6) took on the Myrtle Beach Pelicans (6-6) on Thursday night at Five County stadium to open a four game series. The Mudcats were able to crawl back into the game after starter Micahel Goodnight struggled early. The Mudcats were down 5-1 after the top of the fourth but were able to come back and take the lead going into the ninth 6-5. Reliever Jordan Cooper wasn’t able to close the game out as he allowed two runs in the ninth which ultimately cost the Mudcats the game as they would end up losing 7-6.

Carolina gets revenge with 1-0 victory over Wilmington
The Carolina Mudcats finally defeated the Wilmington Blue Rocks early on Wednesday after losing two straight games at Frawley Stadium. With a 1-0 shutout victory, Carolina improved to a record of 6-6 gaining some ground in the Southern Division of the Carolina League. The Mudcats’ solitary run came in the top of the fourth inning off Blue Rocks’ starting pitcher Jason Adam. Through three innings of work Adam had only allowed one hit while recording a strikeout and two walks. The first Mudcat Adam faced in the fourth inning was center fielder Tyler Holt who managed to reach base on an error by Blue Rocks’ third baseman Angel Franco.

Wilmington crushes Carolina, 9-2
The Carolina Mudcats first game outside of North Carolina this season wasn’t pretty. The Wilmington Blue Rocks defeated the Mudcats 9-2 at Frawley Stadium on Monday night.

Mudcats' sloppy defense leads to 6-5 loss
On Sunday afternoon at BB&T Ballpark, the Winston-Salem Dash defeated the Carolina Mudcats 6-5 despite giving up two home runs. Carolina was able to take a 5-4 lead in the top of the sixth inning, but Winston-Salem took advantage of an ill-advised Mudcats pitching change scoring two runs in the seventh to put the game out of reach. The Dash got their offense rolling early off Mudcats’ left handed starting pitcher T.J. House.

Dash blank Mudcats 1-0
Friday the 13th proved to be an unlucky day for the Carolina Mudcats as they failed to score a single run, losing their first road game of the season to their in-state rivals the Winston-Salem Dash, 1-0. The Mudcats out hit Winston-Salem seven to three, but they left nine runners stranded on the bases. Dash starting pitcher Andre Rienzo threw six innings allowing six hits while striking out nine batters. Never yielding a single run, Rienzo forced Carolina batters to pop up or ground out all night long.
