After breaking a losing streak Saturday with a win over the Smokies, the Lookouts began another streak with a 6-4 loss to the first place Jacksonville Suns (Southern League South Division) Sunday at AT&T Field.

The memory of last week's five-game sweep of the Chattanooga Lookouts was obviously still fresh in the minds of the Jacksonville Suns.  The Suns wasted little time reminding the Lookouts of that fact.

J.T. Realmuto wrapped a three-run homer around the left field foul pole witih none out in the second inning and the Suns never looked back.

Duke Von Schamann (3-5) was the victim of Jacksonville's early offensive assault as the Suns attempt to stretch their narrow lead over the rained-out Mississippi Braves in the South Division. Realmuto's homer followed a single by Mark Canha and a double from former Cardinals' No. 1 pick Zack Cox.

A dropped fly ball by Lookouts'  left fielder Brian Cavazos-Galvez provided the Suns with a gifr run in third inning. Then the Suns stretched their advantage to 6-0 in the fifth on a pair of runs set up by a leadoff triple from Michael Main and a Mark Canha double.

The Lookouts' one offensive constant this season, all-star Joc Pederson, put Chattanooga on the board in the sixth inning when he followed a lead-off single by Rafael Ynoa with his 18th homer of the season.  But Suns starter Anthony deSclafani struck out the next two Lookouts to avoid a big inning.

The Lookouts added single runs in the seventh and eighth, then put two men on in the ninth, but could not close the early gap. 

The teams hope the weather cooperates Monday to get in a make-up doubleheader at 5:15. Lookouts Chris Reed and Andres Santiago will start for the Lookouts (17-38 in the second half) in the two seven-inning contests.

Tom Dugan Was A Good Man

Tom was my boss for most of my 36 years at Carta.  At the ceremony where I was awarded my 30-year service award, Tom said, "Don disagrees with 85% of my decisions, but I wish I had 80 more employees just like him." This kind of indicates our relationship. When I asked him to help with my plans for a reunion for the group of Veterans that I served with in Vietnam, he quickly ... (click for more)
