Matt Wallach hit two homers, while Lookouts starting pitcher Allen Webster threw a gem of a game to lead the Lookouts to a 4-1 win over the Smokies in a rain-shortened contest at AT&T Field on Friday night.
Chattanooga scored their first run of the game in the bottom of the first inning. Rafael Ynoa led off the inning with a double, swiped third and raced home on an errant throw by catcher Michael Brenly..
Wallach hit a two-run shot in the fifth off of Dae-Eun Rhee (6-5) to raise the Lookouts’ lead, 3-0.
The Smokies scored their lone run of the game in the sixth inning. Logan Watkins began the inning with a double and advanced to third on Jae-Hoon Ha:s single. Justin Bour then ripped a single to bring home Watkins. Lookouts starting pitcher Webster, however, was able to settle down and retire the next three batters to prevent any further damage.
Wallach hit a solo shot in the eighth to put the score at 4-1. Shortly thereafter, the game was called due to stormy weather.
Webster (4-8) went six solid innings, yielding just one run one five hits and two walks, while striking out 10.
