Backed by four home runs, just beating out the previous game’s total of three, the Lookouts (16-23) pummeled the pitchers of the Huntsville Stars (26-14) from top to bottom for 17 runs in a 17-6  blowout win. The crowd of 5,386 was filled with enthusiastic students who came to the ballpark on a field trip filled with science and fun. 

Lookouts'  hitters raked from top to bottom. Every hitter that came up to bat had at least one  hit and scored a run, except Ozzie Martinez, who was a defensive replacement and pinch hitter in the eighth inning. The only other player not to record  at least one  RBI in the game was starting left fielder, Scott Schebler. 

The Stars were able to bat around in the top of the second inning, scoring four runs before Garrett Gould could retire the side. A two-out rally in the bottom of the inning was spurred by Gould himself, when he helped his own cause by doubling home Daniel Mayora and Noel Cuevas. It was the first two RBIs by a Lookouts'  pitcher on the season. The team's pitching staff came into the game going a combined 7-for-45 (.156) on the season with three walks and three runs scored.

With Gould on base Darnell Sweeney singled home the right-hander to move the Lookouts to within one run of tying the game. An unearned run for the Stars in the fourth inning, helped out by two errors and a stolen base, took the lead back to two. That lead was erased by the second hitter to come to bat, Daniel Mayora,  who stung a ball to deep right-center, scoring Chris O’Brien. The inning didn't end before the Lookouts '  took their first lead of the game at 6-5 on another Sweeney single. 

In the fifth inning, the Lookouts blew the game wide open. Eleven Lookouts came to the plate and eight scored, capped off by O’Koyea Dickson’s second home run in as many games. Once the dust settled, the Lookouts were holding onto a 14-5 lead in the fifth inning. 

Jeremy Hazelbaker hit a two-run bomb in the seventh inning, and Ryan Adams popped a solo shot in the eighth inning, giving the Lookouts their 17-6 total. 

17 runs are the most  runs  the Lookouts have scored while being a Dodgers' affiliate, beating the previous high of 16. The last time the Lookouts scored 17 runs was on August 11, 2005 when, as an affiliate of the Reds, they were playing the Mississippi Braves.
