John Raynor belted three-run homer in a four-run, sixth-inning uprising during Carolina's 7-2 victory over Mississippi at Five County Stadium.

The Mudcats also turned their first triple play in 12 years and inched closer to the second-half Northern Division title. They hold a seven-game advantage over first-half champion Tennessee.

Graham Taylor won his second Double-A start, scattering nine hits in six innings of work. Ryan Tucker allowed one run in two innings of relief and Todd Doolittle, the team's saves leader, tossed a scoreless ninth.
