Biloxi, MS --  The Biloxi Shuckers  completed a five-game sweep of the Chattanooga Lookouts on Tuesday night at MGM Park, winning both legs of a doubleheader 8-0 and 4-1.

In game one, the victorious Shuckers had 15 hits to the Lookouts one hit.

RHP Trey Supak tossed the first complete game of his career in game one, coming one out shy of throwing a no-hitter, while RHP Bowden Francis allowed just one run in five innings of work in game two.

With a second double header on tap in as many nights, the Lookouts were taken aback in the sweep to the Shuckers.

Supak (W, 10-4) came out firing for the Shuckers, retiring the first 12 men that he faced in order. The Brewers' #11 prospect allowed his first baserunner on a walk to Ibandel Isabel in the fifth but didn't allow the runner to advance as he sat down the next three batters in order.

Still carrying his no-hitter into the seventh, Supak induced a one-hopper to the mound from Mitch Nay for the first out and struck out Isabel for the second out, Supak's ninth strikeout of the night. 

Jose Siri stepped in for Chattanooga and lined a single up the middle with two outs, breaking up the no-hit bid for Supak. 

Box Score

In the night cap, the Lookouts' bullpen was put to work for the start. Wyatt Strayhan had things in control until the third inning when the Shuckers touched him for three runs.

Chattanooga jumped out to an early lead in the second game against the Shuckers thanks to a solo home run by Gavin LaValley, his sixth of the season, to put the Lookouts up 1-0.

Shuckers starter RHP Bowden Francis (W, 5-6) would settle into a groove after the home run, allowing just two hits during the remainder of his outing and inducing two double plays to face the minimum over his final four frames.
