    Mez had a solid shot to the warning track to the right field warning track in his fourth at bat, but a nice catch was made.

    Dorn with a jam shot to plate another run, little bit of a rally going. Negron up

    Negron flys out to right and Sappelt strikes out looking to end the threat, bats down 5

    It also sounds like Bakersfield was postponed.

    Mudcats were a lot of fun tonight until Joseph imploded. I really hate it for the guy. Boxberger was solid. Freeman did his job. Joseph topped out at 91 a couple of times but his pitches didn't fool anybody.

    Mike Costanzo was money tonight. The guy hit the wall on the fly his first three at bats. He tripled and doubled twice. He drew a walk his last time at bat. None of his shots were pulled, all to center or slightly left center. If he could pull one, the right field wall is not nearly as high as the rest of the outfield.

    Miguel Rojas was brutal at the plate going 0-4 with three K's.

    This one got away. Try again tomorrow night. I really like this lineup and the staff is going to be good as well.

    I was at the Bats opening day. It was one of the biggest crowds I have ever seen at Slugger Field - certainty the longest ticket line. Lots of changes at Slugger Field this year - I liked the new team store and improved concession stands, but missed the long-time PA announcer, edy's ice cream, and pinstriped jersey's.

    Scott Carroll pitched a decent game - not overpowering, but he got the job done. None of the relief pitchers looked good - Herrera and Krebs were especially awful.

    Mesoraco looked good, and was hitting everything hard. Frazier statistically had a good night at the plate, but he looked awful at the plate - I guess when you swing hard at everything, you will sometimes get lucky.

    Looking forward to seeing how Klinker pitches tomorrow - I hope he can go back to his 2009 form.

    Did anyone watch the game on milb.tv? If so, how was the quality, they are streaming it at a much faster rate. Is it in widescreen?

    It did leave the park. Heisey did the same thing in about the same spot but his was on a line. Mesoraco's was high and majestic.

    Yonder should have got to a ball that would have ended the damage in the Mud Hen's big inning but he just didn't get there in time.

    My opening day wrap up:

    Cook and Costanzo shine, but Mudcats fall in opener

    The Carolina Mudcats opened its 21st season in Zebulon on Thursday night against the Mobile Baybears in front of a small 2,884 opening-night crowd. Former big league Daryl Thompson got the nod for manager David Bell as the ace of the Mudcats starting rotation. The former big leaguer didn’t disappoint, allowing only four hits over five innings while punching out four. The only black mark on Thompson’s outing was a first inning home run to first baseman Paul Goldschmidt.

    Six-year free agent signing David Cook impressed in his first game in the Reds organization as the left fielder hit a two-run home run in the second inning to give the Mudcats a 3-1 lead. Third baseman Mike Costanzo started off 2011 with a bang, 3-3 with two doubles and a triple while driving in one in the opener.

    Thompson was relieved by former first rounder Brad Boxberger. The righty threw two scoreless frames before Bell turned the ball over to setup man Justin Freeman. Freeman surrendered a single run in his only inning of work. Left-handed closer Donnie Joseph, with a 4-2 lead, came to shut the door on the Baybears in the ninth. A do or die play to shortstop Miguel Rojas that resulted in a base hit started the unraveling for Joseph and the Mudcats. Joseph (0-1) ended up giving five earned runs, including a three-run home run to Goldschmidt, giving the Baybears a 7-4 lead and eventual win to start the 2011 campaign.

    The Baybears (1-0) and the Mudcats (0-1) will face off again Friday night a 7:15.
