Inning by inning Recap of the game.

Rafael Ynoa led off the first with a single and Joc Pederson got a base bit. Yasiel Puig was at the plate when Nestor Molina uncorked a wild pitch. Puig crushed a single to left plating Ynoa while sending Pederson to third - Puig took second on a play at third. Blake Smith's sac fly to left sent Pederson across the plate with the second run of the inning. C. J. Retherford hit a long sac fly to center field enabling Puig to jog home with another run.

The score remained 3-0 until the bottom of the sixth when Chattanooga added two runs. Smith walked and scored when Retherford tripled off the center field wall. After the Barons made a pitching change, Chris Jacobs plated Retherford on a single to center.

Ryan Acosta took over for Lee in the seventh. He began well getting the first two men he faced. Two walks followed and before the Barons were done, they'd added four run.  At that point, the Lookouts led by just a run 5-4. Acosta was charged with four earned runs on two hits.

Chattanooga got those two runs back in their half of the seventh. Ynoa singled and scored from first on Pederson's triple to right. Puig walked and stole second base. On the throw, Pederson scored from third and Puig ended up at third on a throwing error by the catcher.

Relievers Kyle Cofield and Yimi Garcia (S2) set the Barons down in order in the eighth and ninth innings respectively.
