The Chattanooga Lookouts have lost five straight games for the first time in 2018, falling to Montgomery 10-6 on Thursday night. The loss leaves the Lookouts in a battle with the Jackson Generals for first place in the North Division.

The Biscuits (22-25) scored seven times in the top of the second and never looked back.  Montgomery has now won a season-high six in a row, and seven of their last eight.

Kohl Stewart ran into a buzzsaw, giving up six earned runs in just 1 1/3 innings, and the Montgomery Biscuits stayed hot even after Stewart was out of the game, scoring three more runs against Sam Clay in just an inning of work to take a 9-2 lead midway through the third inning.

Tyler Jay gave the Lookouts 2 2/3 innings of scoreless one-hit baseball to put the team back on track, but the damage was already done. Ryan Eades gave up a run in two innings of work. And then Casey Crosby and Zack Jones each pitched a scoreless inning to close out the game.

After Brent Rooker homered in the first inning to give Chattanooga an early two-run advantage, the Biscuits piled on seven runs in the second inning to put the Lookouts in a hole from which they were never able to recover. 

Stewart (3-2) was removed from the game in the middle of the 12-batter second inning, and was ejected for arguing with home plate umpire Chase Eade on his way to the dugout.

The first inning bomb was the first of Rooker's two home runs on the night, while Edgar Corcino hit his fourth home run of the season to now have a hit in 11 straight games at AT&T Field. Zander Wiel also went 3-for-5 to now have at least two hits in four of his last five games.
