Todd Cunningham, Jefry Marte, Juan Graterol and Quintin Berry each had two hits Tuesday night, leading Salt Lake to a 7-5 victory over Memphis. In front of 3,868 fans at Smith's Ballpark, the Bees won their ninth straight home game.

Turning point

Salt Lake bunched five hits during a five-run second, when it built a 6-1 lead. Rey Navarro and Berry doubled and scored. Sherman Johnson added a two-out, two-run single.

Bees' MVP

After Memphis rallied within a run with nobody out in the top of the eighth, Salt Lake reliever Cody Satterwhite pitched out of a bases-loaded jam to preserve the Bees' 6-5 lead.

Hidden hero

Salt Lake starter Kyle McGowin wasn't overpowering, but he made pitches when it counted. In six innings, he allowed three runs on five hits. He stranded seven base runners — five in scoring position.

Flashing leather

With two out in the fourth, the Redbirds' Charlie Tilson hit a line drive into the hole. On a short hop, Salt Lake shortstop Ryan Jackson made a backhanded pickup and strong throw to retire the side.

Angel angle

Pitcher A.J. Achter was designated for assignment by the Angels on Tuesday. He returns to Salt Lake, where he's 2-0 with a 1.93 ERA this season. In a related move, pitcher Chris Nuding was send to Double-A Arkansas.

History lesson
