Birmingham, AL --  With the Cincinnati Reds LHP Alex Wood as the starting pitcher on a rehab assignment for Chattanooga, the Lookouts scored three runs in the top of the third, then held on for a 3-2 win over Birmingham Monday night. The victory ended the Lookouts losing streak at fourteen games and kept them one shy of the all-time record for consecutive losses of 15 set in 1971. 

Wood (W, 1-0), whom the Reds placed on the 60-day injured list in March with a back injury, tossed six innings of one-run ball. The 2017 MLB All-Star allowed four hits and struck out four to earn the win.

Lincoln Henzman (L, 2-5) suffered a tough loss after the right-hander allowed two runs (both earned) on six hits in 5 2/3 innings of work.

The Lookouts, who fell behind 1-0 in the fifth inning, tied the game when Taylor Trammell lined a home run to right.

Ibandel Isabel followed with a single and Tyler Stephenson doubled . After Jonathan India walked, Gaven LaValley belted his second hit of the night driving in two runs and giving the Lookouts the lead at 3-1. 

Ramon Torres' triple in the seventh inning brought the Barons within a run at 3-2.

  • Johendi Jiminian allowed a run in 2.0 innings with a strikeout.
  • Juan Martinez threw a perfect inning with a strikeout.
  •  Box Score

    The bullpen talents of Johendi Jiminnian setting up the finish and the closing of Juan Martinez with three up and out ninth iced the win and took the pressure of the long losing streak off the Lookouts in the win. 

    In game two the Lookouts send LHP-Scott Moss (6-4,3.57) to the mound and a face off against LHP Matt Thomshaw (3-4,2.45). Air time on 98.1 FM "The Lake" is set for 7:50 EDT as well as MiLB.com.

    Gavin LaValley put the Lookouts ahead in the sixth with his two-run hit.
