The New Orleans Baby Cakes piled up 17 hits on Tuesday night to support six strong innings from Mike Kickham in a 8-1 win over the Oklahoma City Dodgers.

Austin Nola led the 'Cakes with four hits and Brian Anderson chipped in three, while Moises Sierra had a three-run double.

Seven of the eight position players in the lineup had a hit, with six different players netting at least two.

Anderson led off the second inning with a double and scored one out later on Grant Green's RBI single to give the Baby Cakes a 1-0 lead they would nurse until the fourth.

Another double by Anderson put runners at second and third with no outs, and both runners scored on consecutive singles by Green and Nola. Steve Lombardozzi added a two-out RBI single to stretch the 'Cakes lead to 4-0.

Sierra put the game out of reach with a bases-loaded double in the sixth.

After the Baby Cakes were shut out in each of his previous two starts, the run support was a welcome sight for Kickham (3-3), who allowed one run and five hits in six innings.

David Hale (2-4) lost to New Orleans for the third time in as many starts this season by giving up 12 hits and six runs - four earned - in 5 2/3 innings.

With the victory, the Baby Cakes clinched a winning August, their first winning month of the season.

The 'Cakes continue their final road trip of the season on Wednesday in Oklahoma City at 7:05 p.m.
