Mudcats fight back at Chattanooga

The Carolina Mudcats showed the kind of fight that almost won them the first-half championship Thursday night.

Zack Cozart's two-run homer in the sixth pulled the Mudcats out of the doldrums, finishing the scoring in a 4-3 victory over the host Chattanooga Lookouts at AT&T Field.

If they can win the finale tonight at 6:15, when ace southpaw Travis Wood (8-3, 1.36) goes against Chattanooga's J.D. Durbin (0-2, 1.93), they will earn a split of the six-game series.

The Lookouts got to eventual winner Jordan Smith (5-3) for three runs in the first inning.

Todd Frazier then got Carolina on the board in the fourth with his eighth homer of the season.

And in the sixth, Sean Henry tripled and scored on a grounder from Jose Castro before Cozart's blast - his ninth of the season - put the Mudcats ahead to stay.

The Mudcats, who improved to 3-8 in the second half, return home for their big July 4 celebration game Friday night at 7:15 against the Tennessee Smokies.
