The Chattanooga Lookouts couldn't seem to bust out of their long losing streak as the Jacksonville Jumbo Shrimp won their third straight game against the home team, 4-3, on Saturday night at AT&T Field.

 

With their 13 consecutive losses, the Lookouts are now just two losses away from tying the Southern League record for the longest losing streak. In 1971, Columbus (GA) lost 15 games.

 

Unlike the first two contests with Jacksonville in which the Shrimp tallied 23 runs, Saturday's game saw a total of seven runs cross the plate.

The Lookouts simply couldn't mount a rally in the late innings.

 

Jacksonville starter RHP Edward Cabrera (W, 3-0) was sharp as he struck out 10 Lookouts on the night, allowing three runs across six innings.

 

The visitors collected six hits in the game to five for Chattanooga. The Lookouts were 1-for-5 with runners in scoring position and stranded two runners. Jacksonville was 2-for-7 with runners in scoring position and left six men on base

 

Jacksonville opened up with three runs in the first inning off RHP Ryan Lillie (L, 1-3), as Joe Dunand's RBI double brought home outfielder Brian Miller. That was soon followed by a two-run homer off the bat of Stone Garrett.

 

Chattanooga struck back in the bottom of the first as first baseman Mitch Nay got the Lookouts on the board with a two-run homer, his 13th of the year. 

 

Jacksonville added their fourth run in the third inning to make it 4-3, the game's finals score.

    The Lookouts travel to Birmingham Monday to face the Barons in a five-game series.

     

    The Cincinnati Reds have announced that LHP Alex Wood will continue his rehab assignment with Chattanooga. After suffering with back issues since spring training, Wood made his first rehab appearance on July 6th with the Triple-A Louisville Bats.

    Keeping Wood on a five-day schedule means he has to leave the Louisville Bats, who are off on Monday. Instead he’ll start Monday's game in Birmingham to face the Barons. He's likely to throw 85-90 pitches in the game.
