The Chattanooga Lookouts encountered a monster team as they opened their last home series of the year, falling to the first place Montgomery Biscuits 17-6. Although the game was dubbed "Green Power Night", on the field it was Biscuits Power Night.

The Biscuits have won both the first half and the second half of the Southern League's North Division.

Meanwhile the Lookouts are battling with the Tennessee Smokies to avoid ending the second half in the cellar

It was a rough night for RHP Brad Markey as he allowed eight earned runs, on eleven hits, going only three innings.

The Biscuits batters were locked and loaded early, putting up runs in the second, and the fourth innings to take an 9-0 cushion.

Montgomery utilized the home run ball, homering four different times including an inside the park homer from Jim Haley. Haley finished the night with four hits, completing the cycle.  

Biscuits starter RHP Paul Campbell was cruising as he held the Lookouts bats without a hit through four innings, striking out three.

In the fifth inning, the Chattanooga offense came alive rallying for six runs on six hits.

Designated hitter Samir Duenez was the one who started the scoring parade, breaking the tie and the streak with a solo home run to get the Lookouts on the board 9-1.

The scoring didn't stop there with Chris Okey slapping a double down the left field line scoring both Brantley Bell and Michael Beltre.

The scoring line kept moving with Stuart Fairchild legging out a triple to left scoring both Okey and Michael O'Neill to make the Montgomery lead 9-5. 

Gavin LaValley tallied the sixth run for the Lookouts with a linedrive single up the middle to score Fairchild.

That would be all the offense the Lookouts could get, as the Montgomery arms would buckle down the rest of the game, holding Chattanooga to just three more hits.

The Biscuits offense wasn't done tallying eight more runs between the eighth and the ninth innings to complete the one-sided win over the Lookouts.
