The Smithfield-Selma High alumnus ripped a solo homer in the sixth inning, giving Chattanooga the eventual winning run in a hot 3-2 result at Five County Stadium that gave the Lookouts a split of their four-game series.

Jon Huber (2-1) was the winning pitcher in relief. Mudcats starter Tom Cochran (7-4) took the loss, going five innings and allowing two runs on two hits with four strikeouts against four walks.

Felix Perez led Carolina at the plate with three hits and scored both runs, while Kris Negron doubled and singled.

The Mudcats will have Wednesday off before heading to Montgomery for a five-game road trip.
