The Chattanooga Lookouts jumped out to an early lead, but committed four errors on their way to a 6-4 loss at the hands of the Montgomery Biscuits.

Recap

Lookouts' center fielder Darnell Sweeney started the game on a positive note for Chattanooga, leading off the bottom of the first with a single. Noel Cuevas followed up Sweeney's single with a line drive base hit of his own to put runners on first and third with no outs. The Southern League active leader in home runs, Scott Schebler, proceeded to bloop a ball towards second that was misplayed by second baseman Ryan Brett. Brett's error sent home Sweeney for the team's first run of the game.

The Biscuits were able to break a 1-1 tie with three runs in the third. Richie Shaffer led off by hitting a pop fly into shallow center. Second baseman Angel Sanchez was camped under the ball but was called off by center fielder Sweeney, allowing the ball to drop for a hit. Later in the inning, a bunt single brought home Shaffer. Ryan Brett followed with a single to center that Sweeney misplayed, then threw away allowing two runs to score. Sweeney was charged with two errors and would later make a third. 

Scott Schebler made the Lookouts' first error in the second inning. Luke Maile doubled followed by Jeff Maim's single to right that got past Schebler allowing Maile to score.

Down by five runs in the bottom of the sixth the Lookouts seemed out of the ball game when O'Koyea Dickson put the team right back into it on a two-run monster home run towards left field to make 6-3 Montgomery.

Chattanooga continued to edge closer towards the Biscuits in the bottom of the seventh when Darnell Sweeny hit a triple and was plated by Cuevas on a soft ground ball. That run was the last run of the night for the Lookouts who could not complete the rally against Montgomery's bullpen.

Roy Exum: This Library Comes Alive

I am pretty positive that I haven’t stepped foot in a library in the last 50 years. Between the ever-widening Internet, with all of its search engines and infinite resources, I have got about as much use for a library as I would if I read a book about a transgender person. I have neither the time or inclination. Be like trying to teach a pig to sing – the pig always get bored. ... (click for more)
