Rough first inning dooms Mudcats at West Tenn

The knockout punch came in the first inning.

The West Tenn Diamond Jaxx tagged Luis Montano for six runs in the opening frame, giving them all they needed in a 7-4 win over the visiting Carolina Mudcats in the opener of their five-game series at Pringles Park on Thursday night.

The big blow in the first was from N.C. State alumnus Matt Mangini, who doubled the home team's early lead with a three-run homer.

Montano (0-2) got a chance to continue and did well from then on, hurling four scoreless innings.

Danny Christensen (1-6), who had last won a game 349 days earlier in the Eastern League, pitched five scoreless innings for West Tenn before the Mudcats' offense got going. The Mudcats scored three runs, those coming on a Todd Frazier double and a two-run homer from Shaun Cumberland.

Carolina added its last run in the seventh on Juan Francisco's third hit of the game.

The Mudcats are now eight games behind first-place Chattanooga with 29 left in the second half.

Game 2 is tonight at 8:05 EDT, with Zach Ward (0-1, 18.00) starting for Carolina against Luis Muñoz (4-6, 4.48).
