It's too bad for the Carolina Mudcats they didn't have a doubleheader like this a month ago, when it could have helped them in the pennant race.

Two shutouts in one night.

Alexander Smit (pictured) and Joe Krebs each started shutout wins as the Mudcats beat the homestanding Montgomery Biscuits 1-0 and 5-0 on Monday night.

Smit (4-3) pitched six innings in the Game 1 win while Sean Watson came on for the seventh for his sixth save.

Carolina scored the run in the third, on a Jose Castro single that scored Jake Long.

In the nightcap, the Mudcats scored three runs in the third off Alex Torres (0-1) on a Yonder Alonso single followed by Zack Cozart's two-run homer and never looked back.

Zach Ward (1-4) picked up the win.

Carolina had two transactions on Monday, as infielder Eric Eymann was sent down from Triple-A Louisville, while infielder Justin Tordi has been sent down to Sarasota.

Carolina plays its final road game of the season tonight at 8:05, with Jeremy Horst (0-3, 9.20) on the hill. The Mudcats return home Thursday night for the opener of a five-game set against the Mississippi Braves.
