The Chattanooga Lookouts went down to defeat for their fourth game in a row as they get bested by the Tennessee Smokies, 7-3, at what had been the friendly confines of AT&T Field.

It was all Smokies in Thursday's contest as three costly errors come back to haunt the Lookouts in a four-run fifth inning.

The Lookouts were limited to just seven hits.

They stranded four base runners and went 0-for-3 with men in scoring position.

In just his second start with the Smokies, RHP Alex Lange (W, 1-0) provided on all fronts. Connor Myers set the table in the third with a triple off the wall in left field. One batter later, Lange helped his own cause with an RBI line drive into right field to secure his first career hit and a 1-0 Smokies lead. 

Southpaw Reiver Sanmartin (L,0-2) made his second start at the AA-level and was tagged with his second loss of the year. Sanmartin tossed four and two and thirds innings giving up five runs (two earned) on eight hits, while striking out five.

Lookouts outfielder Ibandel Isabel knocked in all three Chattanooga runs as he crushed his 19th dinger of the year. Isabel has been on fire from the plate hitting .394 with 12 RBI along with five bombs in his last eight games.

Reds number one prospect OF Taylor Trammell returned to the Lookouts lineup from the injured list going 0-for-2, with a walk.
