Trey Martin's first homer of the season -- a grand slam in the seventh inning -- lifted the Kane County Cougars to a 5-4 victory and a series sweep of the Peoria Chiefs in Midwest League action Tuesday afternoon at Fifth Third Bank Ballpark in Geneva.

The first-place Cougars (35-17) trailed 2-1 in the seventh when Jordan Hankins doubled to put runners at second and third. After a pickoff, David Bote walked and Shawon Dunston Jr. reached on an infield hit to load the bases. Martin pulled a 2-2 pitch over the left-field wall to give the Cougars a 5-2 lead.
