Petersen, Suns send Mudcats on a long bus ride

The Carolina Mudcats might be returning home tonight, but they won't be bringing any momentum with them.

A three-run homer from former Mudcat Bryan Petersen (pictured) in the fourth inning provided all the scoring the Jacksonville Suns needed to beat the visiting Mudcats 5-1 in the finale of their five-game series.

The loss, Carolina's fourth in five games in the series, cut the Mudcats' "tragic number" to seven for elimination from the playoff race in the Southern League's North Division.

Jarrett Santos (4-2) was the winner while Alexander Smit (3-3) took the loss.

Carolina's only run came in the third, as Stephen Chapman's sacrifice fly scored Logan Parker.

The Mudcats will be back at Five County Stadium tonight at 6:15 against the Tennessee Smokies, with Luis Montano (0-4, 7.66) taking on Tennessee's Chris Carpenter (0-2, 4.96).
