Pitching continues to dominate as Mudcats take a split

If you love pitchers' duels, it's too bad you probably haven't been in Jacksonville, Fla., for the Carolina Mudcats' last four games against the Suns.

Neither team scored three runs in a game in their series that just ended, and that pattern continued perfectly tonight in a doubleheader at The Baseball Grounds.

The Suns got just two hits - one in each game - in 13 innings, as the Mudcats won the opener 2-0 before dropping the nightcap 1-0.

Carolina is 7-13 in the second half while Jacksonville is 13-7.

Matthew Klinker (3-0) went six innings in the Mudcats' win in the opener. All-Star selection Logan Ondrusek worked a perfect seventh to pick up the save.

Todd Frazier went 3-for-4 on the opener for Carolina, which gave Suns ace Cristhian Martinez (7-3) his first loss since May 4.

In the nightcap, Brad Stone (2-1) and two relievers combined on the three-hit shutout for Jacksonville.

Tom Cochran (1-3) took the loss, giving up one unearned run in the third inning.

The Mudcats now take a three-day All-Star Break before opening a five-game series on Wednesday night at Five County Stadium against the Chattanooga Lookouts.

Carolina's Travis Wood has been named the starter on the mound for Monday night's Southern League All-Star Game, while the Mudcats' Frazier and shortstop Zack Cozart are also in the starting lineup with Ondruzek, James Avery and Jordan Smith in the bullpen.
