Pensacola, FL - Bailey Ober, 6-foot-9 right hander, essentially pitching in his Double-A level debut, worked a season-high seven innings, allowing just two hits against Chattanooga, as the Blue Wahoos clinched the series with a 4-1 win at Blue Wahoos Stadium.

For the second straight game, the Lookouts were plagued by errors. Thursday's loss saw three mistakes and Friday's witnessed four errors.

Neither team scored more that single runs in any inning. The Lookouts only run was Jonathan India, the Cincinnati Reds former No. 1 pick, hitting a lead off home run in the fifth inning.

Chattanooga starter LHP Reiver Sanmartin matched Ober with a pitching gem of his own before he left the game in the seventh inning. Sanmartin went 6 1/3 innings giving up three runs but only one earned run 

Sanmartin retired ten in a row in the middle innings before the Blue Wahoos score in the seventh.

The Blue Wahoos scored single runs early in the game. In the first inning. Royce Lewis hit a two-out single. He was running on Trevor Larnach's single and when the ball was mishandled in left field, Lewis sped around third base and scored game's first run.

Caleb Hamilton factored into their next two runs after reaching on a single each time and scoring on errors.

The crowning blow for Pensacola came from MLB rehab, catcher Williams Astudillo, with his home run in the eighth off Lookouts' reliever, Brandon Finnegan.
