CUBS
Tennessee AA
The Smokies have been getting recognition all season for their bats but Tuesday night Trey McNutt deserved some attention for the way he gutted through five innings for his first victory of the season in a 6-1 victory at Jacksonville.

McNutt 1-1 allowed only one run in his five innings of works but surrendered seven hits and issued a walk, skating in and out of trouble on more than one occasion before the bullpen locked up the Suns with four scoreless innings.

Tennessee broke the game open with a four-run third inning. Matt Spencer and Rebel Ridling had RBI doubles before Steve Clevenger and Blake Lalli added RBI singles. Ridling extended his hitting streak to seven games and pushed his average to .424 in the process. Hes 14-for-31 .452 on the current road trip, which concludes Wednesday afternoon.
Iowa AAA
Memphis scored three times in the bottom of the ninth Tuesday afternoon at Auto Zone Park to rally past Iowa, 4-3. Nick Stavinohas RBI single brought in the winning run, making a loser of John Gaub.

Lou Montanez had two hits and an RBI. Hes hitting .435 and has driven in 26 this season. He has reached base safely in 17 of 18 games.
Peoria A
Arismendy Alcantara stayed hot and Austin Kirk had his second consecutive solid outing Tuesday night as Peoria bounced Clinton, 10-1, at Alliant Energy Field.

Alcantara extended his hitting streak to six games with a pair of hits. He also drove in four runs as did Tony Giansanti. Alcantara his hitting .500 11-for-22 during the streak with 12 RBIs. Rohan was 3-for-5 and has eight hits in his last 15 at-bats, pushing his average to .358.

Kirk 2-1, meanwhile, allowed a run and struck out six over six innings, his longest outing of the season.

WHITE SOXWinston-Salem A
The Dash have struggled through much of the latter half of April but found some solace Tuesday night at BB&T Ballpark, topping Frederick, 3-2, for just their second victory in the last nine games.

Winston-Salem scored three seventh-inning runs to take the lead. Jared Mitchells two-run single tied the score at 2-2 before he was thrown out attempting to steal second. Ian Gac walked and then went to third on an Andy Wilkins double before Jason Bour brought him home with a fielders choice.

Jose Martinez finished with a pair of hits and is hitting .397. Addison Reed, making his second appearance of the season with the Dash after coming up from Kannapolis, pitched two scoreless innings for his first victory. Taylor Thompson went 1 13 innings for his first save.
Kannapolis A
The Intimidators had their biggest offensive output of the season Tuesday night, pounding host Lexington, 13-6.

Kannapolis jumped out to a 6-1 lead after two innings with Trayce Thompsons three-run homer in the second providing the big blow. It was his team-leading sixth of the season. Kyle Eveland added a three-run homer of his own in the seventh. Jake Petricka improved to 2-0 after allowing four runs in five innings.

In other action, Charlotte saw its losing streak stretch to five games as it dropped an 8-5 decision to ScrantonWilkes-Barre at Knights Stadium. Dayan Viciedo had a homer and three RBIs for the Knights. Huntsville bested Birmingham, 7-3, at Joe Davis Stadium. Charlie Leesman struck out eight over six shutout innings before Nate Jones surrendered seven runs in a third of an inning to take the loss and waste Leesmans effort.
