The Pensacola Blue Wahoos handed the Chattanooga Lookouts their second shutout of the series with a 3-0 win.   

The series has featured a matchup of two teams who swapped affiliations last year. The Blue Wahoos have 13 players who were in Chattanooga last season.

Lookouts manager Pat Kelly, managed the Blue Wahoos for three seasons (2015-17) when they were the Cincinnati Reds affiliate.

In Tuesday's game, Brusdar Graterol (5-0), the Minnesota Twins' top-ranked pitching prospect, produced another superb outing with five scoreless innings and the bullpen was rock solid behind him.

Pensacola's victory occurred a night after the Blue Wahoos missed a chance for a doubleheader sweep when losing a 4-0 lead in the final, seventh inning, of the second game, then losing 5-4 in ninth.

Lookouts pitcher, veteran Rob Wooten pitched well in his first start back, only allowing one unearned run in five innings.

In addition to an unearned run the Blue Wahoos scored two runs in the eighth to make it 3-0.

Designated hitter Brantley Bell recorded the only multi-hit game for the home team and is now hitting .264 on the season.
