KODAK TN -- After a shutout win yesterday, the Tennessee Smokies' (30-33) pitching staff kept the Chattanooga Lookouts' (34-28) bats quiet again in a 4-1 win at Smokies Stadium on Monday night. 

After a scoreless first frame, the Smokies drew first blood in the second inning scoring the first run of the game.

Chattanooga answered during their next at-bat when Taylor Trammell boomed a ground rule double to right sending Michael Beltre home to tie the game.

The ground rule double kept Jose Siri from scoring, as he was required to stop at third which kept the game tied at one.

A pair of runs in the bottom half of the third regained the lead for the Smokies. Vimael Machin blasted a no-doubter solo home run deep to right field off RHP Tony Santillan (L, 2-4). The Smokies loaded the bases afterwards from a single, walk, and hit by pitch.. A sacrifice fly doubled the lead and 4-1 was the final score

RHP Thomas Hatch (W, 3-6) earned the win after holding the Lookouts to one run on seven hits while striking out six batters over five innings.

Smokies relievers RHP Jake Stinnett and LHP Wyatt Short (S, 4) added four scoreless innings to close out the game. Short ran into some trouble in the ninth after giving up a two-out double, single, and walk to load the bases, but he struck out Tyler Stephenson to secure the save.
