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.

Captains fall for 10th straight time
After dropping nine straight games, seven of which were at home, the Lake County Captains looked to change their luck as they hit the road to take on the Clinton LumberKings on Thursday night.

Starting for Lake County was Joe Colon, who had a rough outing in his previous start on Saturday when he surrendered six runs in 2.2 innings of work.
