Strong DeJesus Lifts Mudcats

Misael DeJesus allowed just two hits over six innings in winning his first career Double-A game as Carolina defeated the Mississippi Braves 6-2 at Trustmark Park before 2,103 fans on Monday afternoon.

DeJesus permitted his two hits in the third inning, a double to opposing pitcher Ryne Reynoso and a game-tying single by Gorkys Hernandez, but shackled the Braves (2-3) the rest of his outing. DeJesus (W, 1-0) pitched three perfect innings of his six-inning stint, fanning four and walking three.

Meanwhile, Carolina's middle of the lineup hitters provided the offense in winning the series against defending champion Mississippi. Todd Frazier, Logan Parker and Sean Henry each collected three hits, including Parker's first Double-A home run, a solo shot against Reynoso in the second to put the Mudcats (3-2) ahead 1-0. Frazier was retired his first two at-bats, but finished the game with a double and a pair of singles to finish the series with 10 hits. Henry singled his final three trips, driving in a run in the victory.

With the game tied 1-1, Chris Heisey smacked a 1-2 breaking ball from Reynoso over the left field wall for a two-out, two-run homer to give the Mudcats a 3-1 lead. Carolina added another run in the sixth, eighth and ninth against the Braves bullpen.

Sean Watson pitched two perfect innings with three punchouts, while Camilo Vazquez yielded an unearned run in the ninth to finish the triumph.

Dallas Buck (0-0, 5.40) starts the opener at Mobile on Tuesday night against Matt Tora (1-0, 3.60) at 8:05 PM ET from Hank Aaron Stadium.
