Carolina doubles up Tennessee

ZEBULON -- Brett Carroll delivered a two-run double during a five-run seventh inning as Carolina defeated West Tenn 6-3 at Five County Stadium on Sunday afternoon.

The game was scoreless thanks to a duel between Manu Olivera and Isaac Pavlik, who carried the shutout into the bottom of the sixth when a double play ball hit by Carroll scored Kevin Randel with the game's first run.

Olivera was relieved to begin the seventh, but Trevor Hutchinson quickly surrendered three runs, capped by a two-run homer by Jake Fox.

The Mudcats batted, however, around in the bottom half, picking up a run on a bases loaded walk, followed by Carroll's double which gave Hutchinson (1-3) his first Double-A victory since 2004.

Scott Tyler and Christopher Young (S, 6) combined for the final two innings to cap the Mudcats' fourth-straight victory, matching their longest winning streak of the season.

Jose Garcia starts today at 7:15 p.m. for Carolina in the fourth game of the five-game set.
