Chattanooga Blows Lead, Game

Chattanooga Blows Lead, Game

Chattanooga is unable to maintain the lead and fall to the Jackson Generals again 4-3.

In the middle of a tough losing streak the Lookouts saw a glimmer of hope in the second inning when J.T. Wise hit a homerun and put up Chattanooga's first run in their last 22 innings played.

However the Generals didn't give the Lookouts time to celebrate scoring twice third inning and put Chattanooga back at a one run deficit.

The Lookouts fought back to take the lead again in the fifth inning with two runs.

Osvaldo Martinez tied the game at three when he scored from Miguel Rojas's single bund, and Angelo Songco scored soon after when Joc Pederson grounded out to first giving Songco a chance to score from third, which put the Lookouts ahead yet again.

Although the Lookouts took the lead, it was only for a short time. The very next inning the Generals put up two back-to-back runs that pushed them into the lead yet again, which ultimately became the final score.

Despite the fact that both teams made it onto the scoreboard most of the work was done by the pitchers this game.

The pitchers had a field day on the mound striking out, between the two teams, twenty-six batters throughout the game.

Chattanooga started the game with Duke von Schamann who pitched the longest at a little over five innings. Schamann allowed for six hits, four runs, two of which were homeruns, two walks, and five strikeouts.

The Lookouts Pedro Baez, Onelki Garcia, and Yimi Garcia all pitched for Chattanooga for one inning.

With their time on the mound Baez, and both Garcia's racked up five strikeouts, giving the Lookouts a total of 10 strikeouts during this game.

With two games down and three to go the Lookouts still have a chance to win the series. They have shown they are capable of it when they came back to defeat the Mississippi Braves back in June.
