The Chattanooga Lookouts allowed five runs in the top of the ninth inning and fell to the Tennessee Smokies, 7-2.  Lookouts' starting pitcher Tyson Brummett (L, 2-2) only allowed two runs in 6.2 innings of work, but the offense could not overcome the Smokies' ninth inning offensive barrage.
 
Brummett came into tonight's game with the fifth-lowest ERA in all of Minor League Baseball with a mark of 0.39.  The righty's place among the leader boards seemed in jeopardy early on when he gave up a RBI double to Rubi Lopez in the first inning.  After the double, Brummett shut out the Smokies for the next four innings.
 
Down one run the Lookouts' offense could not get anything going against Smokies' starter Matt Loosen (W, 2-2).  Chattanooga was finally able to get on the scoreboard when Chris O'Brien and Ozzie Martinez smacked back-to-back doubles.  Loosen finished the day only going five innings, but ended up fanning eight batters.
 
The stalemate didn't last long as the Smokies were able to scratch out their second run of the day in the top of the sixth inning.  The score remained 2-1 until the top of the ninth inning when Tennessee scored five runs on four hits.
 

In the bottom of the final inning O'Koyea Dickson came around to score on a RBI single by Scott Schebler, but the late game run was not enough to avoid the team's second straight loss.

Box

Friday night the two teams will face each other for the eighth time this season and third time at AT&T Field.  Pitching for the Lookouts will be southpaw Chris Reed (2-1, 1.71) who went six innings and struck out a season-high nine batters against the Smokies on April 11.  Reed will be facing off against righty Dae Eun-Rhee (1-1, 2.92).
 
Notes: With his single tonight, Scott Schebler has now recorded a hit in six of his last seven games...Sweeney's hit extended his hitting streak to 11 games.  During the streak the second baseman has raised his average from .200 to .294.
