The Lookouts ended the 2007 season by beating West Tennessee Monday, 7-5.

Johnny Cueto (6-3) was the winning pitcher.

Chattanooga completed the regular season on a six-game winning streak.

Huntsville won both the first- and the second-half of the SL North Division. Although the Lookouts are not in the playoffs this year, they came very close.

The Lookouts finished the second half 1/2 game behind the Huntsville Stars and a game ahead of third-place Tennessee. However, the Smokies (not Lookouts) will meet Huntsville in the playoffs since Tennessee had the best overall record in the Southern League's North Division.
