Mudcats swamped in series loss at Frederick

Posted April 28, 2013

— With a steady, light rain falling throughout the afternoon, Sammie Starr belted a grand slam, and the Frederick Keys topped the Carolina Mudcats 10-5 to win the three-game series on Sunday afternoon at Harry Grove Stadium. The loss drops Carolina to 10-13, while Frederick pulls above .500 at 12-11.

Tim Berry (2-1) was strong in the start for Frederick, striking out eight batters over six innings. The left-hander allowed four runs on seven hits. Matt Bischoff earned a three-inning save in relief. The Mudcats fanned a season-high 14 times in the loss.

On the other side, Mudcats’ starter Jacob Lee (0-2) struggled with his command, issuing three walks in only a 1.2 innings. He was chased after allowing six runs and five hits. The Mudcats issued a season-high eight walks to the Keys, who lead the Carolina League with 97 base on balls this year.

For the 15th time in 23 games, Carolina opened in the scoring. Charlie Valerio cracked a two-run shot off Berry in the second inning over the left field fence. It was his first of the year.

Frederick wasted little time in retaliating. Against Lee, the Keys loaded the bases with three walks. Starr followed with the grand slam to left for a 4-2 lead. One out later, Travis Adair hit a solo shot to right. After surrendering a double to Zane Chavez, Lee was lifted for Goodnight. The right-hander surrendered a run-scoring single to Allan de San Miguel for a 6-2 Keys lead.

The Keys added two more off Goodnight in the third to increase the lead to six before Jordan Smith cracked a solo home run to left-center off Berry in the the fourth to cut it to 8-3.

From their the teams traded runs with Francisco Lindor doubling home Tyler Naquin in the sixth, and, again, with a single in the eighth.

Naquin, Lindor and Smith recorded multi-hit efforts in the loss for Carolina. Smith extended his hitting streak to seven games. The right fielder has recorded two hits in four straight.

The Mudcats open a series at Pfitzner Stadium against the Potomac Nationals on Monday night at 7:05 p.m. Left-hander Shawn Morimando is scheduled to throw against the P-Nats’ Blake Schwartz. The Mudcats return home to host the Keys May 3-5. The weekend series features “Friday Night Fireworks” presented by Carolina Ford Dealers on the 3rd, and a Mudcats fishing hat giveaway on Saturday, May 4th.
