In the third game of five the Stars improved on their lead in the North division beating the Lookouts  7-1 before a crowd of 4,074.

Huntsville's Taylor Jungmann pitched seven strong innings. The only run Jungmann allowed was in the bottom of the first. Jeremey Hazelbaker singled home Darnell Sweeney which was the only run the Lookouts scored. Jungmann gave up seven hits and struck out four. The righty turned in his fifth quality start in eight starts this year. Jungmann improved to 3-4 on the season.

The Lookouts took an early lead with the help of some great situational hitting.   Darnell Sweeney led off the game with a single to right and Ozzie Martinez moved him to second on a sacrifice bunt. A single was all that was needed to score him from there and Jeremy Hazelbaker was more than happy to take care of that with his lone RBI single of the night .

The Stars tied the game in the top of the second inning. Adam Weisenburger doubled home Mitch Haniger. Then the Stars took the lead for good after Josh Prince's RBIsingle in the same inning.

Southpaw Chris Reed (L, 3-2) has been at or near the top of the Southern League strikeout leaderboard most of the season. Reed came into the game in second place, only five away from taking  back the lead. The Stars don’t strikeout much and came into the game tied for the least amount of strikeouts in the Southern League with 242 so far this season. Reed still was able to  reclaim the top spot fanning five Stars batters in 5.1 innings.    

In the sixth, the Stars put the finishing touches on the Lookouts. They took advantage of three walks and Jason Rogers cleared the bases with a grand slam over the right field wall. It was the third homer of the season for Rogers and the Stars second grand slam this year.
