PENSACOLA, Fla. - Tyson Brummett continued his impressive start for the 2014 Lookouts lowering his ERA to a meager 0.49 after Tuesday's start. He gave up five hits in 7.0 innings of work and surrendered just one earned run.

The Lookouts defeated the Blue Wahoos, 7-3, at Pensacola Bayfront Stadium.

The Wahoos (14-18) had their winning streak snapped at four games by the Lookouts (13-18), who won just their second game over their last seven contests.

The Wahoos struggled to find runs in the game against Lookouts starting pitcher Brummett, who retired 15 batters in a row from the end of the first inning into the sixth inning.

The Wahoos staged a comeback in the ninth inning but the comeback fell short in the ninth when Shelton shut the door with a strikeout and a groundout to finish the contest.

The Lookouts continued to swing the bats well and had their second grand slam in as many nights. Daniel Mayora hit the grand slam in the seventh inning for the Lookouts and added a two-run double to his ledger. He finished with six RBI in the game, the second straight night a Lookouts player had a six-RBI game. 

The Dodgers eighth best prospect, Lookouts' lefty Chris Reed (2-1, 2.19), will start for Chattanooga..The Wahoos will send Jon Moscot (2-1, 1.93) to the bump on Wednesday night. Moscot is 2-0 in his last two starts and has given up just five hits over 15.0 innings pitched. 

The play-by-play of the game can be heard at 7:30 p.m. over FM 105.1 and over internet with the Voice of the Lookouts, Larry Ward, calling all the action.
