The Chattanooga Lookouts ended their losing streak with an 8-4 win against the Mississippi Braves. Friday's chilly series finale saw a combined 28 strikeouts and 18 walks. 

Lookouts' starting pitcher Scott Moss, despite control issues, had a strong night for Chattanooga.

Moss went 4.0 innings giving up three runs on two hits while walking five and striking out eight.

Lookouts' winning pitcher, reliever Anthony Fossas (W, 2-1), put the clamps down on the Braves offense and did not give up a hit over 3.0 innings.

M-Brave's starter Kyle Muller struggled to find the strike zone in this third start, alternating walk and strikeout through the first nine hitters. His three walks in the second produced three runs and the game was tied after two frames. Muller walked a career-most six batters and struck out four over 1 2/3 innings. 

Mississippi jumped out to an early three run lead on a Connor Lien three-run homer. Lien accounted for all of the Braves runs as he added a solo shot in the ninth for the Braves fourth run of the night.

The Lookouts offense got off to a great start as they added three runs in the second inning aided by three walks and three wild pitches.

In the sixth inning they seized the lead on a fielder's choice by T.J. Friedl. Jose Siri then knocked in a run on an RBI single to give the team the two run lead. They added one more run on a Taylor Trammell ground out.  

In the eighth, two more runs were added on a sacrifice fly and a throwing error. Overall, the Lookouts scored eight runs on four hits and 12 walks.

The Lookouts' three-run inning in the second and two-run inning in the eighth required no hits. 

Joel Kuhnel (S,1) pitched the final two innings for Chattanooga and struck out an additional five batters to bring the team's total to 17.
