A walk-off single from Logan Parker (pictured) completed a late comeback, giving the Carolina Mudcats a 3-2 win over the visiting Mississippi Braves on Saturday night.

The Braves began the scoring with a pair of fifth-inning runs off starter Alexander Smit, on an RBI double from Concepcion Rodriguez followed by an RBI single from Brandon Hicks.

Mississippi starter Jose Ortegano carried a shutout into the eighth before Carson Kainer's single started a two-run rally. A wild pitch and walk followed, before a one-out RBI single from Kris Negron chased the starter. Shaun Cumberland's infield hit tied the score.

In the ninth, Zack Cozart singled and took second on an error. Eric Eymann's single moved Cozart to third to set up Parker's heroics.

Zach Ward (2-4) was the winning pitcher.

The series continues tonight at 6:15, with Jerry Gil (2-4, 9.57) on the mound for the Mudcats.
