Cold temps and Frazier's hot bat: Mudcats win 3-2

Posted by on Mon, May 18, 2009 at 7:58 PM

FIVE COUNTY STADIUM/ ZEBULON—Nary a soul was in line at the ice cream stand at Five County Stadium this evening, as cold temperatures had fans bundled in blankets and big coats for a doubleheader. I arrived at the first Mudcats game late—a 5:30 start for the  make up game from yesterday's rainout—but caught the last three innings.

The 'Cats defense looked shaky: a ground ball eluded 3B Juan Francisco, who apparently thought taking one step to his left and flailing his glove would suffice. D for Effort, Francisco.

Nonetheless, the 'Cats reliever, Derrik Lutz got out of a bases-loaded jam and outfielder Todd Frazier drilled a line drive to left field in the bottom of the seventh in a shortened game to win the shortened game. 

Carolina is now 15-21 and three games behind in the Northern Division of the Southern League.

Game 2 starts in 15 minutes.
