Ouch! Mudcats give up 20 on an ugly, interminable night in Jackson

About the only good thing about Friday night for the Carolina Mudcats was an offense that got cranked up far too late.

The Mudcats allowed a franchise record number of runs during the longest road loss in their club history, falling to the West Tenn Diamond Jaxx 20-9.

Carolina has now lost six of its last seven games,

West Tenn scored six times in the second inning off Zach Ward (0-2), and then added six more in the third off Chris Kelly - who was ejected from the game as was Carolina manager David Bell (pictured) - to get off to a 15-1 lead.

Carolina used six pitchers in the 20-hit, 11-walk debacle that lasted 4:00. The final two were position players Carson Kainer and Justin Tordi.

Johan Limonta led West Tenn with a 5-for-5 night that included a double, a triple and a walk with three RBIs, with N.C. State alum Mark Mangini kicking in a homer and a double for four RBI.

Juan Francisco doubled three times for the Mudcats, while Logan Parker hit his fourth homer of the season.

The teams will play the third game of their current five-game set tonight at 8:05, with southpaw Tom Cochran (3-4, 3.66) on the hill for Carolina.
