Sarasota trails 6-4 after 4 1/2. They have failed to fully take advantage of four Hammerhead errors. Alonso with RBI number 28 and Neftali Soto had a two run blast (3). Jerry Gil continues to get pounded giving up all six runs in 3 1/3 innings. His ERA is now in double digits.

Sean Watson just blew the save after a Carolina comeback by serving up a two-out, two-strike, two-run single to a batter hitting .208. Mobile now leads 5-4 headed to the bottom of the ninth.

Lots of struggles for this guy this season so far.

Looks like Carolina tied it in the bottom of the ninth with a two-out walk to Heisey, Cozart HBP and RBI single for Francisco. Frazier fanned. Then, in the top of the 10th, Frazier and Parker were both ejected.

Mudcats lose it 7-5 after a passed ball and a run-scoring single off Ruben Medina in the 10th. Still not sure what happened with the ejection of Frazier/Parker- Frazier had been called out on strikes so that's understandable, but Parker wasn't even in the game at the time! What'd he do, come out to play the field right afterward and tell the ump "still think that was a horse!@#$ call, blue."? Catcher Chris Denove had to go play first base.

I have a feeling that may have been reported incorrectly in the play-by-play, because Denove was the only substitute identified (and both Parker and Frazier were described as first basemen). But I don't know.

Oh. I just read doc's post better. Parker was Frazier's replacement when he was bounced. That's why there was only one sub.

The fact that stubbs has turned it up a bit is encouraging, but what I really like is that he's flashing some power. Lots of doubles, or so it seems, lately.

Hope he keeps up the momentum and has a great year. It would do wonders for this organization if he figured it out.

Alonso have a 13 game hitting streak?

Some random thoughts:

Alonso should be in Carolina by the end of the month.
Watson is officially a bust.
Mesoraco might be next on that list. Maybe he should be sent back to Dayton to try to restore some confidence.
I hope Thompson can string together a few nice starts so that he can be packaged in a deal for something useful later this summer.
I like to see Stubbs and Heisey both producing the way they are.
Zach Cozart is a guy to watch closely. He could be the SS of the future.

Yes sir he does. Hitting .353 over that time period with 4 doubles and 2 HRs.

Mesoraco is showing some signs of life at the plate. He's still on the interstate though.

Watson's problem is control. He can't get anything over except the fastball, so he walks people/falls behind in counts and then has to groove 'em.

I think so too. That was a strange draft pick to begin with and his numbers have been progressively worse every year.

I'm assuming here but I think It's all about discipline/work ethic with this kid and that's what the Reds apparently glossed over when deciding on him. I haven't seen him since he played for Dayton, I wonder has he put on any weight since then? Apparently that was an issue his 1st year when he stunk it up out of the gate they told him over that winter he needed to slim down and he did and pitched great in Dayton. Most batters down there though couldn't lay off his knuckle curve with a 2 strike count so he got bye fine. When a batter did lay off he had no answer but to walk them it seemed, I bet he hasn't done anything to improve his other offerings since then.

Mes shouldn't have been forced to Sarasota to begin with along with Soto and Bucholz. I'd have given them all at least a month or so to get there bearings in Dayton before I moved them up. Mes could have used a little longer than that even. But like Doc intimated he seems to be doing a little better as of late.
