The Chattanooga Lookouts (4-8) pitching staff struck out a season-high 13 Jacksonville Suns' (4-8) batters, but the team still suffered the 4-0 loss on Home & Garden Night at AT&T Field. 
 

The game began as a pitching duel between Lookouts' starting pitcher Tyson Brummett (L, 0-1) and Suns' lefty Andrew Heaney (W, 2-0).

 

 

Heaney and two Suns' relievers held the Lookouts to just one hit. Heaney retired 17 batters in a row after allowing  a single to infielder Ozzie Martinez in the first inning.

 

Brummett allowed one run in the second inning, but clamped down to deliver five strong innings while striking out six batters.

 
After Brummett left the game, the Suns' added one run in the sixth, seventh and eighth innings to make it 4-0.  Lookouts relievers, Hector Nelo, Juan Gonzalez and Juan Noriega combined to allowed three earned runs, but did strikeout a combined seven batters. 
 

In the bottom of the ninth inning Chattanooga began to mount a rally when reliever James Nygren walked Martinez and Brian Cavazos-Galvez to begin the inning.  After an infield fly pop up by O'Koyea Dickson, Nygren threw a wild pitch to advance the runners to second and third with only one out, but struck out the final two batters to hand the Lookouts their eighth loss of the season. 

 

Martinez's hit in the first extended his hitting streak to six games.

 

Daniel Mayora drew his fourth walk of the year and has now been on base in 11 out of the team's 12 games this season.
