Scott Snodgress carried a no-hitter into the 9th inning Monday night, eventually surrendering a one-out single to Matt Wallach in a 7-0 win over the Chattanooga Lookouts in front of 3,961 fans at Regions Field.

Snodgress (10-7) was dominant over 8.1 shutout innings, striking out five and walking three while picking up his league-leading 10th win of the season. Several Barons' defenders made brilliant plays to keep the no-hitter alive including a diving catch by Keenyn Walker in left field to end the 8th inning. The one-hitter was the Barons' second in four days and the shutout was their third in the five-game series against the Lookouts.

J.R. Ballinger recorded the final two outs of the game to complete the one-hit shutout.

Snodgress' outing overshadowed a tremendous game by Marcus Semien, who gave the Barons a 1-0 lead in the 3rd on a solo shot to left-center field. His second long ball of the evening came in the fifth on a booming three-run shot into the Lookouts bullpen to give the Barons a 4-0 lead. The two homers gave Semien 12 on the season, tying Dan Black for the team lead. Both home runs came against Garrett Gould (1-2,) who allowed four runs on four hits over 5.0 IP.

The Barons would blow the game open with three runs in 7th on a double by Tyler Saladino, triple by Trayce Thompson and an RBI single by Dan Black. Thompson and Black would each finish with two hits on the night.

With the win, the Barons improved to 61-39 on the season and 17-13 in the second half while the Lookouts fell to 47-52 and 12-17 in the second half. The Barons concluded their season-series against Chattanooga with an 11-4 record including a 9-1 mark at Regions Field.


The Lookouts return to the friendly confines of AT&T Field Tuesday night where they hope to forgot their last series at Birmingham. Chattanooga will face the Jackson Generals (Mariners) in a five-game set.

A Disturbing Trend At Exit 11 - And Response (6)

So, am I the first to notice a trend?   How many wrecks does exit 11 need before anyone asks "whats up with that?"  I have lost count of the wrecks that continue to happen, even after last year's awful loss of life (which I believe 51 percent of the blame should fall on the THP officer on duty).  The problem with this section of interstate are sight lines ...

Roy Exum: My Garden This July

I can never remember a day in July when my garden, my lawn, my dogwood tree, and my ferns are all wilting for lack of rain. Right now we are more than eight inches under our average rainfall for the first six months and, on this wonderful weekend, those who love firecrackers are urged to keep a pail of water in case a spark could cause a fire. On the other hand, every July 4 th ... (click for more)
