The home crowd was in for a treat as Dodgers' top prospect Corey Seager made his Chattanooga debut for the Lookouts (10-19) against the Montgomery Biscuits (17-14) in a 9-2 loss at AT&T Field.


When asked in a pre-game conference what he would consider to be a nice home debut, Seager replied, "Hopefully, we can go out and win, have a good game and come out on a good note and a couple hits is always nice." 

The Lookouts weren't able to follow through on the first part of his answer, but the 20-year old was able to get the couple of hits that he wanted.

Seager led off the bottom of the second inning by smashing a double off of the left-center wall and moved to third on a fly out to right. Unfortunately, that was as far as he would get in that inning.

He was able to make his way home in the 8th, however as he lined a one-out single to center. O'Koyea Dickson and Bobby Coyle then collected singles of their own to bring him around to score. 

The other Lookouts' run of the game was scored in the fourth inning when Daniel Mayora doubled into the gap to plate Scott Schebler.

Eight of the Biscuits that started finished with a hit and five of those players finished with at least two hits. Jeff Malm led the way with two hits including a two-run home run and three runs scored. Taylor Motter drove in three runs while scoring once. Montgomery collected a season-high 15 hits.

The Biscuits jumped on Andres Santiago (2-6) early with a solo shot from Motter in the first inning. Alejandro Segovia drove in the second run with a double in the second inning. Malm then cranked his two-run shot in the fourth to give the Biscuits a 4-0 lead.

Montgomery has now hit 27 home runs in July to lead the Southern League.


Tuesday night's matchup will feature Lookouts RHP Nick Struck (1-5, 7.29) against RHP Dylan Floro (8-8, 3.36) of the Biscuits. First pitch will be at 7:15 pm.

Note: With his RBI in the fourth, Daniel Mayora broke a three-way tie for the most RBIs on the team at 50, moving him into sole possession of the lead at 51.

Taylor Motter's solo home run was his 12th of the season.

He and Jimmy, Henry and Bill went to the University of Virginia where they were roommates in an old, beat up house that was painted pink. Naturally, the place became known as the “Pink Palace” but lest ... (click for more)

Roy Exum: OK, Sis, Off You Go

I’ve got to do something to adjust my sense of humor but fear there is not a big enough wrench. Rasmea Yousef Odeh, who is a naturalized American citizen from Jordan, was one of the principal figures in January’s Women’s March on Washington and had an equal starring role in the most recent “Day Without Women” protests in America. I’m all for equal rights for women yet I was appalled ... (click for more)
