The Chattanooga Lookouts returned home to AT&T Field but couldn't catch a break as they lost their eleventh game in a row, losing to the Jacksonville Jumbo Shrimp 8-2.

The visiting Shrimp put on a hitting clinic gathering 16 hits while holding Chattanooga to just four hits..

The struggling 8-18 Lookouts are in last place in the North Division of the Southern League.

Southpaw Packy Naughton was hit with his seventh loss of the year as he struggled allowed four earned on eight hits, while striking out a pair in five innings. 

The Lookouts bats were silenced as they couldn't get anything past Jacksonville's top prospect Sixto Sanchez.

Sanchez kept the Chattanooga hitters off the base paths as he held a shutout through six, allowing four hits on an earned run.

Chattanooga eventually gained some life once they got into the Jacksonville pen, netting a pair of runs in the seventh thanks to Gavin LaValley's  double down the line.

With the Shrimp leading 4-2, the Lookouts managed to load the bases for top prospect Taylor Trammell who lined out at the warning track to end the inning.

The Lookouts bullpen couldn't keep pace with Jacksonville's bats as they piled on four more runs in the later innings to take the game, 8-2 lead.
