Lookouts Defeat Mobile with Home Run in Ninth

Scott Schebler Hits Game Winner

Sunday, June 1, 2014

In a back-and-forth affair at AT&T Field, the Chattanooga Lookouts (22-34) posted a 7-6 win against the Mobile BayBears (33-22), sending the home crowd of 4,254 away smiling as they watched Scott Schebler hit a game-winning home run over the right field fence in the bottom of the ninth inning.  

It was only about 15 minutes into the game when the scoreboard lit up with the first Lookouts' runs of the game.
A two-out single by Daniel Mayora and a walk to Schebler loaded the bases and extended the bottom of the first inning, bringing up Brian Cavazos-Galvez.  The new everyday starter in right field, since Jeremy Hazelbaker was called up to Triple-A Albuquerque, took advantage of a pitch over the plate and served it up to left field, plating Ryan Adams and Mayora.

When the third inning rolled around, it was Cavazos-Galvez who loaded the bases on the third single of the inning. O’Koyea Dickson and Schebler hit the first two and Noel Cuevas lined one into right to score Dickson. With the pitcher’s spot up, Nick Struck helped out his own cause by hitting one over the third baseman’s head and just fair down the left field line to score two more. That was all the offense could muster in the inning, but bringing eight to the plate and lengthening the lead to 5-0 is nothing to scoff at.

The BayBears batted all the way through their lineup in the fifth inning, scoring five runs in the inning and seizing a 6-5 lead. After last night's come from behind victory the Lookouts knew they were not down and out. Dickson led off the seventh inning with a double and Chris O’Brien knocked him home with his second straight single to tie the game at six.

The game was tied up going into the bottom of the ninth, with it beginning to look more and more like it was going to extra-innings, but Nutrition World Player of the Game Scott Schebler took that notion away. With two outs in the bottom of the ninth, he thumped a baseball 368 feet over the right field pavilion, giving the Lookouts the series opening win

Sunday Afternoon will feature Tyson Brummett (4-4, 1.79), who boasts the second lowest ERA out of all starting pitchers in the Southern League. Brummett will be facing BayBears RHP Bradin Hagens (3-2, 2.66) who beat the Lookouts when he faced the team in Mobile on May 15th. It’s also SunTrust Sunday, where you’re encouraged to bring non-perishable food items to donate to the Chattanooga Area Food Bank. While you’re carrying those cans, bring your glove along as well so you can play catch on the field after the game.

Notes: Darnell Sweeney went 1-for-5 in the game, extending his hitting streak to 10 games. He’s 21-67 (.313) in those games. Ryan Adams is on a hot streak of his own as well, recording a hit in 12 of his last 13 games. In the past 10, he’s hitting .463 (19-for-41) with 11 runs scored.
