The Travis Wood Express continues for the Carolina Mudcats.

The Mudcats' homestand ended on a high note behind the left arm of Wood (pictured), as Carolina whipped the Chattanooga Lookouts 6-1 at Five County Stadium for its second straight win.

Wood (9-3) has now won a club-record nine straight decisions. In today's game, he fired seven shutout innings, striking out eight without a walk. He also helped his own cause with an RBI single in the second inning.

Carolina had a balanced offense, led by Carson Kainer who went 3-for-3 with a pair of RBI singles, while Korey Feiner and Todd Frazier each chipped in an RBI hit. Stephen Chapman went 2-for-4 and scored twice.

Following an off-day on Monday the Mudcats - who are currently seven games out of first place in the Southern League's North Division - travel to Huntsville for a five-game series with the first-half champion Stars beginning Tuesday night.
