Mudcats homer twice before Tennessee rallies late to win

Posted by on Sat, Jun 26, 2010 at 9:38 PM

Matt Fairel even helped his own cause with a two-run homer, but the bullpen squandered a three-run lead as the Carolina Mudcats lost to the host Tennessee Smokies 7-6 on Saturday night.

It was the Mudcats’ sixth loss in their last seven games.

N.C. State alumnus Jake Muyco (3-2) was the winning pitcher while Jerry Gil (3-3) took the loss.

Matthew Spencer knocked in the tying and winning runs with a two-run homer in the eighth.

Dave Sappelt added a homer and a single for two RBI for Carolina, while Kris Negron chipped in two hits.

The Mudcats play once more at Tennessee on Sunday, then return home to begin a six-game series with Jacksonville on Monday night.
