Tyler Colvin did most of the damage for the Tennessee Smokies as they dealt the visiting Carolina Mudcats their third straight loss, 4-1 on Saturday night.

Colvin (pictured) hit his eighth homer of the season and also added a double and a single as the Mudcats' Luis Montano dropped his Double-A debut.

Carolina scored its run in the first when Sean Henry singled, stole second and later scored on a Todd Frazier groundout.

Tennessee, which won its sixth straight, tied it in the fourth on back-to-back doubles from Colvin and Wellington Castillo.

The Smokies finished the scoring in the fifth as Jim Aducci tripled to center and scored on a Blake Lalli grounder. Two batters later Colvin blasted a two-run homer, his fifth against Carolina this season.

David Patton, made a major-league rehab start for Tennessee, leaving the game after three innings with a possible groin injury.

Marco Carrillo (2-1) got the win in relief while Brian Schlitter picked up his 15th save.

Zach Ward, who like Montano was called up from Sarasota on Saturday after Lee Tabor and Matt Klinker were called up to Louisville, will make his Carolina debut today 5 p.m. against Jeremy Papelbon (3-4, 3.52).
