Mudcats

Vick reaches five times in loss to Salem

Posted August 20, 2013

— Outfielder Logan Vick earned his way on base five times, but the Carolina Mudcats fell short to the Salem Red Sox 10-9 on Tuesday night at LewisGale Field inside Salem Memorial Ballpark. Vick finished the night with a double, a run-producing single and three walks. He reached safely in eight of his final 11 at-bats of the series.

With the win, the Red Sox (32-25, 65-62) lead the Mudcats (29-27, 51-75) by 2.5 games for the presumptive wildcard spot in the Southern division.

J.D. Reichenbach (4-4) took a hard-luck loss in relief, allowing one run on two hits over three innings. Despite the loss, the left-hander inherited a bases-loaded, no out situation in the third and managed to end the frame with only one run scoring.

Madison Younginer (3-0) gets the win after tossing a scoreless 2.2 innings. He allowed one hit, walked two and struck out three. Nefi Ogando pitched the ninth to earn his third save.

Salem jumped out to a 7-1 lead after a disastrous second inning for the Mudcats saw the Sox plate six. A two-run homer by Mookie Betts and a triple by Carson Blair to drive in two highlighted the frame.

Carolina began the rally in the third with two runs on a single by Joey Wendle and double to left by Bryson Myles.
After allowing a run in the bottom of the frame, the Mudcats went back to work against Salem starter Mike Augliera. Vick’s second hit of the night scored Erik Gonzalez to cut the lead to five.

With two out and the bases loaded, Paddy Matera laced a long single to the right gap, clearing the bases. Matera advanced to second on a throw to the plate and moved to third on a wild pitch. A second wild delivery from reliever Nate Striz scored Matera to tie the score 8-8.

Betts put Salem back out front in the fourth on a two-out triple to right field. A single by Cody Koback of Louis Head in the sixth created a two-run cushion for Salem.

Carolina mounted one last rally in the ninth. Ogando issued back-to-back walks to Vick and Smith. A wild pitch pushed the runners into scoring position before a groundout by Wendle scored Vick. Mater and Myles struck out to end the game, leaving the tying run stranded at third.

Carolina returns home to host the Lynchburg Hillcats on Wednesday, August 21st. The Mudcats and Hillcats will play a doubleheader beginning at 5:00 p.m. The twin bill is scheduled for two seven-inning games with 30 minutes between.
