FIVE COUNTY STADIUM/ZEBULON The Carolina Mudcats have the Carolina League's best record in the second half after having its worst in the first.

But tonight they'll try to break a two-game skid.

It's the middle of a three-game home series against the Wilmington Blue Rocks, who could take over first place in the Northern Division with a win.

Cole Sulser (3-9, 5.05) will take on the Rocks' Glenn Sparkman (6-2, 1.43) in a battle of right-handers.

Wilmington has a couple of familiar faces, as closer Mark Peterson is an alumnus of Sanderson High while hitting coach Milt Thompson played for the legendary 1980 Durham Bulls.

It's a back-and-forth contest all night, but the visitors get a run in the 10th and escape with a 7-6 decision.
