BIRMINGHAM, AL --- The Barons were unable to hold the lead as Chattanooga tied their Friday night game at 4-4 in the 8th on a solo home run by O'Koyea Dickson and an RBI groundout by Noel Cuevas against reliever Ryan Kussmaul.

The Lookouts have been eliminated from contention in the SL North Division.

The game would go to extra innings with the Lookouts taking their first lead on a fielders choice groundout by Noel Cuevas, scoring Schebler from third base against Kevin Vance (3-1, 4.32).

The Barons looked poised for another Regions Field walk-off win, loading the bases with one out in the bottom half of the inning. However, reliever Juan Ramon Noriega struck out Jeremy Farrell and Keenyn Walker to end the game.

The Lookouts return home Saturday night to open a five-game series with the Mobile BayBears. Mobile leads the SL Southern Division by a game over second-place Mississippi.
