"If it weren't for bad luck, they'd have no luck at all." The Lookouts dropped the final game of the series to the Biscuits, 3-1.

Chattanooga lost all 10 games of their roadtrip while their second-half record fell to an abysmal, 14-30. They trail by 11.0 games in last place of the Southern League's North Division. Despite winning all five games of the series, Montgomery remains in last place in the SLSouth Division, 5 1/2 games behind.

Ross Stripling had a quality start for the Lookouts giving up a run over five innings. Andres Santiago, who normally starts, followed in relief of Stripling. He gave up two runs over the next  1 2/3 innings and was the losing pitcher.

The Lookouts got on the scoreboard quickly when Rafael Ynoa lead-off the game with a home run. However, that would be the only run of the night for Chattanooga who finished the night with only four hits.

The Biscuits lead-off batter, Ryan Brett, knocked in all three of Montgomery's runs while going 3-for-5 in the game.

Perhaps the Lookouts luck will change Wednesday night when Huntsville comes to AT&T Field for the first of five games. Game time is 7:15 p.m.

Not Everything Has Been Done To Save Hutcheson

I am a resident of Walker County and I have a personal belief that a hospital ranks equal to other basic services a community should offer (like police, fire, emergency services, school systems, government, etc.). I am not privy to all the management and financial conundrums concerning the feasibility of maintaining and growing Hutcheson, and as a private citizen I don’t believe ... (click for more)

Luckily, he came in actual contact with only a few people but he reportedly rode a subway, took a taxi, went on a three-mile run and ... (click for more)
