Lookouts Win Over Braves, 4-2

Thursday, September 16, 2021

Matt Lloyd put the barrel on the ball and flung the pitch all the way into the centerfield wall as the three stationary baserunners began their mad dashes around the infield diamond.

 

Lorenzo Cedrola was the first to score, and Wilson Garcia followed behind him. Third baseman Robbie Tenerowicz sprinted home and tried to make it 3-1 in the bottom of the fourth.

 

The throw got into catcher Hendrik Clementina with plenty of time to spare though, and Chattanooga’s Byrd was a sitting duck.

The reckless Lookout tried a move only he would attempt, which was to leap over the catcher and dive-bomb into home plate.

 

That maneuver ended up with Byrd being tagged out, but it was probably still the most exciting play of the Lookouts’ 4-2 victory of the Mississippi Braves.

 

After Mississippi’s Greyson Jenista tied the game back up at 2-2 with a deep home run to center field in the top of the fifth, the Lookouts took a while to get that lead back.

 

Jay Schuyler hit his first home run of the season in the bottom of the eight, and the two-run shot gave Chattanooga a lead it would not relinquish.

 

24 year-old lefty Jacques Pucheu had a good outing, throwing six innings and giving up only three hits and two earned runs. Relievers Randy Byrne, Eddy Demurias, and Daniel Duarte combined to throw three straight scoreless innings.

 

The Lookouts and Braves play again on Friday at 7:15.

 

BOX SCORE:

 

MISSISSIPPI BRAVES:              001 010 000  -  2-3-0

CHATTANOOGA LOOKOUTS:  000 200 02X  -  4-6-0

Pretending Is Dangerous

I’ve ‘seen some stuff’ in my time. I have followed politics for many years. I’m retired, I’m a realist and a Vietnam veteran, pretty much in that order. I’m not an alarmist or a conspiracy theorist. That said, I have never in my life been so concerned about the future of this Republic. Politics was once a legitimate contest of ideas, put forth by political figures who were sincere, ...

A self-educated man, he became the Superintendent of Schools in Indiana at the age of 24 for 18 years. Then, not so curiously, he worried that children were missing ... (click for more)
