PEARL, MS  --  The Chattanooga Lookouts defeated the Mississippi Braves 3-2 in 12 innings to take the series finale amidst a rainy Sunday evening at Trustmark Park. With the M-Braves loss, the Lookouts avoided a five-game sweep. The clubs take three days off for the Southern League All-Star Break.


Mississippi (12-13, 50-45) scored two runs on seven hits while Chattanooga (11-13, 46-48) plated three runs on 12 hits.

The Lookouts also committed two errors. Miguel Rojas led the Lookouts with a 4-for-6 night at the plate.


Chattanooga took a 1-0 lead in the top of the second. Angelo Songco doubled and moved to third on a Brian Cavazos-Galvez ground out to second. Sean Burroughs then grounded out to shortstop, driving in Songco and giving the Lookouts an early advantage.


The M-Braves tied the game at 1-1 in the third. Jaime Pedroza singled and moved to second on a ground out. Pedroza stole third before coming in to score when the catcher threw to third but the third baseman wasn't covering the bag.


The Lookouts responded in the top of the fourth. Cavazos-Galvez reached on a two-out single and Burroughs followed with a single to center, putting runners at the corners. A wild pitch from Aaron Northcraft allowed Cavazos-Galvez to score and give Chattanooga a 2-1 advantage.


In the bottom of the seventh, Edward Salcedo and Christian Marrero delivered back-to-back singles to place runners at first and third. Pedroza followed with a single to right field, driving in Salcedo and tying the game at 2-2.


Chattanooga took a 3-2 lead in the 12th. J.T. Wise drew a one-out walk. Rafael Ynoa and Rojas both singled to load the bases. Ozzie Martinez then grounded into a force out at second, allowing Wise to score the go-ahead run.


Yimi Garcia (3-4) tossed the final two frames to pick up the win.
