MONTGOMERY, Ala. - The Montgomery Biscuits (43-26) and Chattanooga Lookouts (36-32) ended their first half action on Sunday afternoon at Riverwalk Stadium with the first half champions coming out on top.

Chattanooga ended first half play in third place, 7 1/2 games behind Montgomery.

The Lookouts scored early and in the middle of their game Sunday only to have two home runs belted out of the park by the Biscuits bats to lose 3-2.

Chattanooga took an early 1-0 lead in their first at bat. Shortstop Alfredo Rodriguez singles and, with one out, stole second base. With men out, Tyler Stephenson singled to right to score Rodriguez.

Rodriguez ended first half play hitting .304. He will be the lead-off hitter in Tuesday's 2019 Southern League All-Star game in Biloxi, MS. Chattanooga's Taylor Trammell is the DH and he bats seventh in the lineup.

Lookouts starting pitcher, Johendi Jiminian, threw a scoreless 5.1 innings when he was replaced after he gave up a walk and a single. Reliever Ty Boyles was tagged for a single that plated Lucius Fox with the Biscuits first run.

With one out and Jose Siri at second and Stephenson on first after being hit by a pitch, Brantley Bell singled in Siri with Chattanooga's second run. The Biscuits got that run back in the bottom of the inning.

In the bottom of the eighth inning, reliever Cory Thompson (L,1-1) gave up back-to-back home runs to Tristan Gray and Kevin Padio for the 3-2 loss. 

Montgomery's Dalton Most shut the door on Chattanooga in the ninth by setting down the Lookouts in order.

    The Wheel Tax Wouldn't Be A Sacrifice And Supports Our Teachers - And Response (7)

    I appreciate our underpaid teachers here in Tennessee so much. We as a whole have a moral obligation to make sure we contribute to their pay. A wheel tax on our cars is a minimal expense to most of us. Sixty dollars is not enough for us to complain. We shouldn't even bat an eye at that if it contributes to the hard working teachers who sacrifice daily for our children. We ... (click for more)
