MONTGOMERY, Ala. - The Montgomery Biscuits (43-26) and Chattanooga Lookouts (36-32) split their doubleheader on Saturday night at Riverwalk Stadium.

The double header makeup turned into a long first game and a much shorter game in the nightcap as the Lookouts win game one 10-4 in extra innings and lose under the lights 2-0.

The Biscuits would match the Lookouts scoring run for run and send game one into extra innings.

In the ninth the Lookouts took charge sending ten to the plate scoring seven runs. Triples from Chris Okey and Alfredo Rodriguez led the charge. 

Joel Kuhnel turned out the lights and retired all but one batter in the bottom of the inning for the win.
