Mudcats 9th inning rally falls short, lose 5-4
The Carolina Mudcats (20-17) ninth inning rally fell short as they lost to the Salem Red Sox (20-15) 5-4 in third game of the four game series on Wednesday night. The Mudcats were blanked for most of the night thanks in large part to Red Sox starter Ryan Pressly who went seven scoreless innings striking out eight while scattering four hits.

Captains win 5th straight in South Bend
The only thing that changed for the Lake County Captains on Wednesday night was the venue.

Clippers power their way to 6-2 win
Mike Sarbaugh was angry in the top of the ninth inning Wednesday night, to the point where he ended up getting ejected from the game between his Clippers and the Syracuse Chiefs. Sarbaugh had a reason to be happy after the game, though, as Columbus (19-20) won for just the second time in nine games, defeating Syracuse, 6-2, in front of 7,803 fans at Huntington Park.

Fishing for Mudcats: "Seems like old times..."
The Kinston Indians were pitching dominant for the past two seasons. The Carolina Mudcats haven't been, but over the past two weeks, the Muddies have started to resemble the K-Tribe in more ways than just as the Indians' High A affiliate. The pitching has really started to carry this team. How much? Hop in the outboard and let's go Fishing for some Mudcats, as Jim Pete brings the Muddies weekly notebook.

Akron Falls 2-1 to Erie in Series Finale

It was a reversal of fortune for the Aeros, who earned a win Tuesday behind seven scoreless frames from starter T.J. McFarland.

Mudcats split doubleheader with Salem
Following a rain out on Monday the Carolina Mudcats (19-16) and Salem Red Sox (19-14) split a doubleheader Tuesday. In the first game the ineffectiveness of Mudcat starter Mike Rayl proved to be too much to overcome for the Mudcats as they fell 8-6. Rayl only lasted two and two third innings and in that time he gave up seven runs (six earned) on six hits.

Around the Farm: May 14, 2012
"When it rains, it pours." While this phrase certainly describes the Carolina Mudcats and their fourth rainout in just over a month, it better describes Monday Night's top player. Joseph Colon got his third straight win and his third straight quality start. Luigi Rodriguez begged, borrowed and stole his way on base. But today's top player continued to play above superlatives and hyperbole. The next big thing for the Cleveland Indians is exactly who you think it is, and I have a feeling he's just getting warmed up.
