BIRMINGHAM, Alabama - Keenyn Walker's bat and Chris Beck's arm sent the Birmingham Barons to a 2-0 shutout of the Chattanooga Lookouts tonight in front of an announced audience 4,989 at Regions Field.

Lookouts' third baseman Daniel Mayora had three hits. 

Starting pitcher Tyson Brummett went 6.0 innings and gave up two runs on four hits. The RHP has an ERA of 1.79.

Walker broke a fifth inning scoreless tie with an opposite field solo home run, his second blast of the season. He finished with a two hits in the game, going 2-for-3 with his 10th steal of the season.

Walker's homer was all Beck (3-6, 3.79), the starter, needed as he allowed just four hits and struck out six over 7.0 dominant shutout innings.

Rangel Ravelo tacked on a key insurance run in the sixth, driving in Dan Wagner with an RBI single.

The Lookouts made things interesting in the eighth, putting runners at second and third base. Reliever Kevin Vance escaped the jam by striking out Scott Schebler to end the inning. Vance struck out four Lookouts batters over 2.0 scoreless innings to pick up his second save of the season.

The shutout was the fourth for the Barons this season as they improved to 21-31. Chattanooga fell to 20-32.

Right-hander Bryan Blough (0-0, 0.00) makes his second appearance and first career start at the Double-A level for the Barons Wednesday against left-hander Chris Reed (3-3, 2.93).

First pitch is scheduled for 8:05 p.m.
