BATAVIA, N.Y. -- Derrick Peterson's two hits included a double and drove in three runs as the Mahoning Valley Scrappers rallied for a 7-4 victory Tuesday over the Batavia Muckdogs in New York-Penn League action.

The Scrappers (9-6) won their fifth straight game to move into a tie for first place by sweeping the three-game series from the Muckdogs.

For the Scrappers, Andrew Lytle tripled to drive in a run.

The Muckdogs took a 3-1 lead in the bottom of the first inning against Scrappers starter Kevin Dixon.

Justin Pekarek (2-0) relieved Dixon in the fourth inning and became the winning pitcher when the Scrappers scored three runs in the sixth inning to regain the lead.

The Scrappers added a run in the eighth frame and two more in the ninth.

Roddy Dustin earned his second save by pitching the final two innings, allowing a run in the ninth.
