Chris Coghlan supplied the game-winning hit as Carolina edged Tennessee 4-3 at Smokies Park on Tuesday evening.

The Mudcats grabbed their fourth consecutive win and 11th overall in their last 12 outings. They own a five-game lead over the Smokies, an affiliate of the Chicago Cubs.

Tied at 3-3, Carolina's John Raynor started the ninth inning with a single. A throwing error on a pickoff throw moved Raynor into scoring position. With one out, Coghlan laced a hit down the right-field line for the lead.

Mudcats hurler Chris Mobley earned his 20th save of the season.
