ZEBULON — The Carolina Mudcats used a total of four home runs, including a pair from Tristen Lutz, to pull away for a 10-3 victory over the Frederick Keys on Tuesday night at Five County Stadium.

Carolina, in sweeping the three-game series against the Keys, moved to 33-25 and sit 7 1/2 games back of the Down East Wood Ducks in the Carolina League’s Southern Division. Frederick dropped to 28-29.

Lutz increased his league-leading home run total to 12, including a back-to-back showing with Mario Feliciano in the eighth.

Feliciano drove in Lutz with an RBI triple in the first, which was followed by Payton Henry’s two-run homer to right field in the next at-bat.

Frederick rallied to tie matters with a trio of unearned runs, including one in the fifth and two more in the sixth. However, Lutz, who finished 2 for 4 with four RBIs, hit a two-run homer in the sixth as part of seven unanswered runs to close matters for the Mudcats.

Carolina posted five runs in the eighth against the Frederick bullpen, including the back-to-back homers by Lutz and Feliciano. 

Christian Taugner won in relief for Carolina, allowing three hits over two innings. Cameron Bishop was tagged with the loss for Frederick, allowing five hits over six innings.

The Mudcats outhit the Keys 9-8, with Lutz and Feliciano finishing with two hits. 

Following a day off Wednesday, the Mudcats remain home Thursday for the start of a four-game series with the Salem Red Sox.
