The momentum continues to side with the Chattanooga Lookouts. Despite the fact they had already earned a spot in the post-season playoffs, they went out Sunday a winner. They finished the final homestand by taking 4-of-5 games from Tennessee.

The game started about as good as you can ask for when the leadoff hitter for the Lookouts, Jeremy Hazelbaker, took the first pitch that came out of the hand of Ivan Pineyro (L, 0-4) over the wall for a solo home run. 

J.C. Boscan, matched that in the bottom of the second inning with a bomb of his own to make the score 3-0.  The team added two more in the bottom of the sixth inning to give them five runs on the afternoon and 608 on the season.

The pitching also continued to be good for the Lookouts, as Jeremy Kehrt pitched four shutout innings before giving way to the bullpen.

The regular season is over, but the Lookouts have made their way to the playoffs and will face off against the first-half winners, the Huntsville Stars. The first two games of the Best-of-Five Southern League North Division Playoffs will be held in Huntsville, but the series shifts to Chattanooga for Game 3 on Saturday, September 6 at 7:15 pm.

From our hometown ... (click for more)
