Did nobody tell the Carolina Mudcats they were eliminated from the pennant race?
At any rate, they sure aren't acting like it.
Yonder Alonzo (pictured) had three hits including a double and three RBI, leading the Mudcats to their third straight win as they defeated the homestanding Montgomery Biscuits 6-4 Tuesday night.
The star of the night, though, was Carolina's starting pitcher Jeremy Horst (1-3), who carried a no-hitter into the seventh inning before former Durham Bull Chris Nowak broke it up.
Carolina's big inning was in the third, when the Mudcats batted around with four runs on five hits and three Montgomery errors to drop the loss on Brian Baker (5-6).
The Mudcats have an off-day today before opening their final five-game homestand, all against the Mississippi Braves, Thursday at 7:15 p.m. at Five County Stadium.
