It might have taken two tries, but the Carolina Mudcats were able to stop their losing streak late Saturday night.

Pinch-hitter Steven Chapman (pictured) ripped a two-run homer in the fifth inning, giving the Mudcats a 2-1 victory over the Chattanooga Lookouts to end a four-game slide.

Chattanooga won the first game at Five County Stadium 11-2.

In the nightcap, southpaw Tom Cochran (2-3) went five innings and struck out six while allowing one unearned run.  Logan Ondrusek picked up his fifth save of the season.

In the opener, Ramon Nivar doubled and singled for three RBI to lead five Lookouts with multiple-hit performances.

Camilo Vazquez (2-2) allowed five runs in 3 1/3 innings for Carolina in the opener. James Adkins (4-6) was the winner for Chattanooga.

The finale of the five-game set is today at 2, with ace Travis Wood (8-3, 1.29) going for Carolina against fellow left Alberto Bastardo (2-1, 4.05).
