The Chattanooga Lookouts got a big inning right when it was most needed, and suddenly their modest win streak stands at two.

Saturday night at AT&T Field, the Lookouts thrilled a crowd of over 6,300 with a five-run fifth inning, building was turned out to be an insurmountable lead over the Jackson Generals and an 8-5 final.

No one Lookouts hitter stepped out ahead of anyone else Saturday, as their eight hits (and seven bases on balls) were distributed evenly. The top of the order did its job, however, as leadoff man Joc Pederson had two hits (one double), two runs scored and an RBI; while Rafael Ynoa picked up a pair of hits, good for a run and RBI as well.

Brian Cavazos-Galvez had two RBIs for the Lookouts, as his two-run single was the key hit in the big fifth.

Lookouts starter Ross Stripling was staked to a 3-0 lead after two innings, but was unable to hold it and came out after just four innings.

Garrett Gould (2-2) was sensational in relief, however, working 4.2 innings, allowing only three hits and striking out 10 Generals. Hector Nelo came on for a final-out save, his third.

Trevor Miller, newly arrived in the Southern League, suffered the loss and saw his ERA balloon to 8.10. Adding insult to his ERA's injury, one of the Lookouts' runs in the second was a steal of home on the front side of a double steal by veteran third baseman Sean Burroughs.

In a roster move, right-hander Steve Smith has been returned to Class AAA Albuquerque.

Box Score

The Lookouts, who have largely lived out of their suitcase the last month, hit the road immediately after the game for balmly Jacksonville, where a 6:05 p.m. contest awaits them Sunday. 

Joc Pederson has had three straight multi-hit games.
