Friday’s game started with a 2 hour and 30 minute rain delay, quite a wait for the 4,009 in attendance at AT&T field, as the visiting Biloxi Shuckers dropped the Chattanooga Lookouts, 7-2. The game ended at about 12:30 a.m.

Lookouts starter Omar Bencomo did not come out of the gate well, giving up four runs on five hits and didn’t make it to the second inning pitching just the first, and the Lookouts never really got back into the game.

The Lookouts burned through a number of bullpen arms to get through the next eight innings. Andrew Vasquez two scoreless innings, another two scoreless from Cody Stashak and Sam Clay. Tyler Jay gave up three runs on four hits in the eighth and then Todd Van Steensel finished the game with a scoreless ninth.

The Lookouts had eight hits and three doubles, but couldn’t really get any rallies going failing to put up any crooked numbers.

Biloxi outhit Chattanooga nine to eight, with the Lookouts committing two errors to the Shuckers one.

 Brent Rooker led the team going 2-for-4 with a double, an RBI, and a run scored. The Lookouts really struggled with the bats, racking up 14 strikeouts as a club against just two walks and the Shuckers had 16 strikeouts.

The teams meet again Saturday night at 7:15 p.m.
