From Milb.comJuly 29, 2009 

— Third baseman Juan Francisco, the Carolina Mudcats' top run producer this season, came up with two big RBIs on Tuesday night.

After the Mudcats fell behind 4-3 in the top of the 13th inning, Francisco's two-out double in the bottom of the inning drove in two runs to produce a 5-4 victory over the Chattanooga Lookouts at Five County Stadium.

With two outs in the 13th, the Lookouts' Victor Garate walked Stephen Chapman and Jake Kahaulelio to set the stage for the winning hit.

Francisco went 3-for-6 with a solo homer in the third, his team-high 19th. His three RBIs pushed his season total to 63. Chapman also homered for the Mudcats.
