Carlos Rojas' three-run double capped the Smokies' five-run eighth inning as Tennessee rallied for a 6-4 win over visiting Chattanooga Tuesday afternoon.

The loss came after an outstanding performance by Lookouts starter Luke Lockwood. Lockwood yielded a run on just four hits over six frames.

Paul Janish continued to punish the opposing pitcher as he went 3-5 with a run scored. Janish is 9-for-16 over his last four games with three doubles, a triple and a home run. Tyrell Godwin went 2-5 with a double and a run. Drew Anderson went 1-4 with a run, walk and RBI. Ryan Hanigan went 3-5 with a double, two RBI and a run scored.

Mike Bumatay (0-1) took the loss, allowing three runs on four hits in an inning of work.

Rojas' big hit saved rehabbing Chicago Cubs right-hander Wade Miller from being saddled with a loss. The 30-year-old Miller, sidelined since April 21 with back spasms, allowed three runs on seven hits over 5 2/3 innings. He threw 86 pitches before being removed from the ballgame.

Sam Fuld singled to start the decisive eighth inning and Chris Robinson followed with a walk to chase reliever Carlos Bohorquez. Bumatay entered and allowed a single to Jake Fox to load the bases. After pitcher Donald Veal struck out, Ismael Salas and Joseph Simokaitis hit back-to-back RBI singles. Rojas followed with his game-winning two-bagger, which gave Tennessee (19-18) the win.

Fox's eighth-inning single capped a 4-for-4 afternoon. The Indiana native blasted his team-leading sixth home run in the fourth inning.

The Smokies' rally made a fortunate winner of Veal (2-4), who allowed a run on three hits and four walks in 2 2/3 innings. Geoffrey Jones entered in the ninth with a runner on first and two outs and struck out Drew Anderson to end the ballgame and pick up his fifth save in as many opportunities.

But at least I no longer receive the hateful (even threatening) emails and insults I became accustomed to. So I'll just bite and say it: I honestly don't see anything expressed by the NSM that hasn't been said locally on some level at one time or another, and ... (click for more)
