Lookouts Lose Suspended Game To Birmingham, 9-2

Lookouts Beat Barons, 6-3, In Scheduled Game

Monday, May 26, 2014

Monday afternoon, the Barons and Lookouts resumed their suspended game from April 28th, with the Barons leading 6-2 in the 7th inning. Since the score was tied entering the inning, the Lookouts had to have an opportunity to match the score despite the game already being official. Scoring three more runs in the ninth, Birmingham (21-30) finished off Chattanooga (19-32), 9-2.

Chattanooga bounced back in the night-cap beating the Barons, 6-3.

The Lookouts scored three runs over the first three innings to take an early 3-0 lead. Ryan Adams started the scoring with an RBI ground-rule double in the first inning. Brian Cavazos-Galvez extended the lead to 2-0 in the second with a solo home run to left field. An RBI single by Daniel Mayora in the third pushed the lead to 3-0.

The lead would grow to 6-0 in the 5th on RBI doubles by Jeremy Hazelbaker and O'Koyea Dickson, knocking McCully from the game after allowing six runs on nine hits over 4.2 IP.
