Duane Underwood Jr.’s second half didn’t begin how he would’ve liked.

The Myrtle Beach starter, fresh off an apperance in the Carolina vs. California League All-Star game, was lit up for six runs on four hits in one inning Friday night as the Pelicans lost 9-2 to the Carolina Mudcats.

All six runs were earned, and the Mudcats led 9-0 after two innings.

Keith Curcio, Jacob Schrader, who homered in the first, and Joey Meneses each drove in two runs for Carolina.

Victory Caratini had a solo home run and Carlos Penalver provided the other RBI for the Pelicans.
