Trailing 2-0, the Indians tallied two runs in the bottom of the eighth inning to send the game into extra frames.

Big night from Rodriguez lifts Mudcats past Keys
Coming off an eight game road trip the Carolina Mudcats (13-13) returned home and beat the Frederick Keys (9-15) on Friday night 10-4.

The offense was led by shortstop Ronny Rodriguez who entered the game hitting only .188, but after a 4-for-4 night it bumped up to .225. He also had two doubles, drove in two runs, and scored three runs.
