JACKSONVILLE, FL - The Jacksonville Suns earned a series win by taking down the Chattanooga Lookouts 3-2 in come-from-behind fashion on Monday afternoon from Bragan Field.
Andres Santiago (L, 2-5) was the hard-luck losing pitcher, by surrendering three unearned runs on four hits in 4.1 innings of work, while striking out four batters and issuing a season-high six walks.
Darnell Sweeney got the scoring going with a two-out RBI single in the top of the third, scoring J.C. Boscan from second to give Chattanooga a 1-0 lead.
In the top of the fourth, Scott Schebler (HR, 17) led off the inning with a solo homer to right on the first pitch he saw, doubling Chattanooga's lead to 2-0.
Jacksonville cut the lead in half when Ryan Rieger came in to score on a fielding error by Angel Sanchez on a ball put in play by Austin Barnes to make it a 2-1 advantage in favor of the Lookouts after four innings.
The Suns tied the game and then took the lead after plating a pair of runs in the bottom of the fifth. Ryan Rieger tied the game at 2-2 on a sacrifice fly and the Suns then took the lead as the next batter Isaac Galloway drove in Terrence Dayleg with a two-out RBI triple to put the Suns on top for good at 3-2.
The Lookouts were limited to just five hits, two by Schebler.
Nick Wittgren (SV, 11) earned the save by facing the minimum three batters in the ninth inning, including inducing a game-ending 6-3 double play.
The Suns and Lookouts will be back at it on Tuesday, with first pitch of the series finale set for 7:05 p.m. ET. The Suns will send out right-hander Jose Urena (6-6, 4.16) while the Lookouts will counter with right-hander Raydel Sanchez (1-5, 6.06).
