The Carolina Mudcats had to wait out a rain delay of over an hour to start the opener of their five-game road series with the Huntsville Stars on Tuesday night.

Turns out it was worth it.

Todd Frazier (pictured) hit a solo homer in the eighth to break a tie, giving the Mudcats a 4-3 win at Joe Davis Stadium.

It was the third straight victory for the Mudcats, who got the decision for reliever Sean Watson (3-4) before Logan Ondrusek came on for his sixth save.

Carolina scored a run in the first on a Juan Francisco single.

After Huntsville got to Lee Tabor for two in the bottom of the frame, Stephen Chapman ripped a solo homer in the second for a 2-2 tie.

Carolina took the lead in the third when Sean Henry scored on Mike Jones' wild pitch, but Vinny Rottino tied it with a solo homer in the fourth.

Game 2 of the series is tonight at 8 (EDT), with Matt Klinker (3-1, 2.52) going against the Stars' Sam Narron (0-0, 5.40).
