It was all around team as Chattanooga nabbed their third win a row, beating Birmingham 7-3.  The Barons (18-28) pitching struggled again in their loss to the Lookouts (24-21) Thursday night at AT&T Field in front of a crowd of 3,056.

The Lookouts rode the wave off of RHP Tejay Antone's six strong innings, as he only gave up two runs, and fanned seven batters.

His solid outing earned him his fifth win and fifth quality start of the year.

Calten Daal got the Lookouts on the board early in the second inning with an RBI base knock to put them up 1-0.  

Ibandel Isabel added two more runs to the lead in the third inning with his 11th home run as Chattanooga led 3-0. That is his third consecutive game with a homer as he overtook the Southern League lead in home runs. 

The Barons struck back with a trio of runs to tie it up.

With the game tied 3-3, the Lookouts took control and ran away in the bottom of the fifth. They chased Barons starter Jimmy Lambert from the game en route to a three run, two hit and three walk inning to go up 6-3.

Breaking the tie with the biggest hit was Lookouts Mitch Nay, who registered his ninth double of the season to score Taylor Trammell and Isabel to make it 5-3. Two batters later, Calten Dahl singled home catcher Tyler Stephenson and it was 6-3

The Chattanooga bullpen was stellar on the mound as the relievers cruised through three scoreless innings, while striking out six batters. LHP Juan Martinez entered in the ninth and shut the door to earn his first save on the year.
