Mr. Deeds, Smokies slam reeling Mudcats

The Carolina Mudcats haven't had much success over the last few nights, and after tonight's contest things are even worse.

Doug Deeds (pictured) blasted a pinch-hit grand slam in the eighth inning, giving the Tennessee Smokies all the insurance they needed in a 7-2 victory over visiting Carolina.

It was the eighth straight win for Tennessee, while the Mudcats have lost five straight. Carolina is in last place in the Southern League's North Division, 7 ½ games behind first-place Chattanooga, while the Smokies and just half a game out of the lead.

Tom Cochran (3-4) look the defeat despite a quality start, allowing three runs on nine hits in his six innings. He didn't get off to a good start, though, as the first three Smokies all hit safely with Tyler Colvin's single making it 2-0.

Carolina scored an unearned run in the second against winner Andrew Cashner (2-1).

Todd Frazier had his second straight two-hit game for Carolina.

Game 4 of the five-game set is Tuesday night at 7:15, with Camilo Vazquez (2-3, 5.44) taking on Tennessee's Casey Coleman (10-5, 3.26).
