Zebulon, N.C. — First baseman Jerrud Sabourin broke out of a slump to drive in four runs in an 8-3 win over the Wilmington Blue Rocks on Sunday afternoon at Five County Stadium. Sabourin, hitting .148 in July, tripled in three in the first and drove in another for the Carolina Mudcats (14-14, 36-62).

With plenty of offense and terrific plays defensively, Nick Pasquale (2-6) hurled six scoreless innings for the victory. The sinkballer scattered five hits with two walks.

Kellen Moen (1-4) allowed eight runs and eight hits in the loss for the Blue Rocks (14-15, 47-52). Wilmington has dropped seven straight games.

Carolina loaded the bases with one out in the first inning, and Tony Wolters broke the ice with a sacrifice fly to left. Up 1-0, Sabourin mashed a liner to center that flew over center fielder Ethan Chapman’s head. The wall rolled all the way to the wall as three runs scored for a 4-0 lead.

Paddy Matera and Wolters had back-to-back hits to begin the third and moved into scoring position on a throwing error by Moen. Bryson Myles’ sacrifice fly to center scored Matera. Sabourin lined a single past a drawn-in Jared Schlehuber at third to plate Wolters.

Ahead 6-0, Myles drove in two with a single in the fifth.

The Rocks rallied for three in the ninth when reliever Fabio Martinez lost his command. Three straight walks loaded the bases with none out and a single by Justin Trapp broke-up the shutout. Jorge Bonifacio drew a walk to score the second run before Rob Nixon replaced Martinez.

The right-hander issued another run-scoring walk before getting a grounder to first to end the game.

The Mudcats continue their series with the Wilmington Blue Rocks on Monday, July 22n. First pitch is set for 7:15 p.m.
