Jerry Sands made sure his first series against his hometown Carolina Mudcats would be a memorable one.
Jon Huber (2-1) was the winning pitcher in relief. Mudcats starter Tom Cochran (7-4) took the loss, going five innings and allowing two runs on two hits with four strikeouts against four walks.
Felix Perez led Carolina at the plate with three hits and scored both runs, while Kris Negron doubled and singled.
The Mudcats will have Wednesday off before heading to Montgomery for a five-game road trip.
