Single-A Carolina Mudcats (11-8)

The Mudcats had a solid series against the Kannapolis Cannon Ballers as they took three out of five games in the series. What was a week filled with weather delays, the Mudcats started the game one strong as they won 7-4. Jacob Misiorowski pitched two solid innings striking out four. The story of the game was Edwin Jimenez who threw four innings, giving up only one hit and one walk, but striking out eight batters. The offense showed out too, where four Mudcats had multi-hit games.

The fun didn't stop after the game one despite the Mudcats losing 4-3 in game two. What was a back and forth affair, the Mudcats once again had three players achieve multi-hit games. Chase Costello couldn't hold on in his relief appearance as he gave up three runs on two hits and three walks in which he was given the loss.

Hitting stayed hot as the Mudcats entered game three of the series as they won 7-1. Two of the offensive players for the Mudcats had multi-hit games, and despite command issues for Dustin Peterson, he was still able to throw four and two thirds of shutout baseball.

The hot pitching carried over into Friday night's matchup as the staff gave up only three hits. Alexander Vallecillo had the bulk of the work, due to the rain delay, as he struck out six batters and in five innings, which was continued Saturday afternoon, where the Mudcats won 1-0.

The second game of the day for the Mudcats did not go the way they wanted as they were blown out 8-1. A rough outing by Tyler Wehrle was the cause of that one as he gave up five runs on four hits. The bats couldn't get anything going either as they could only score once.

With the bad weather on the East Coast, the last game of the week between the two teams has been postponed for a later date.

The Mudcats currently sit tied in second place in the Carolina League North a game behind first place. They go on the road to Delmarva this week, who is right above them. A series win will guarantee them at least tied with first place or perhaps even sole possession of it.
