KODAK, Tenn.  -- Duane Underwood allowed just two hits over 5 1/3 innings, leading the Tennessee Smokies over the Chattanooga Lookouts in a 4-1 win on Thursday.

Underwood (6-4) allowed one run while striking out six and walking four to pick up the win.

Stephen Gonsalves (2-3) went seven innings, allowing three runs and five hits.

He also struck out 10 and walked one in a hard luck loss. Gonsalves has struckout 42 batters in 34 innings this season.

Jason Vosler's 11th home run of the season in the bottom of the first inning was all the Smokies needed in their "must win" victory over the Lookouts.

Randy Rosario, who replaced Gonsalves in the eighth, gave up one more run on two hits.

Tennessee started the scoring in the first inning when Jason Vosler hit a two-run home run.

The Lookouts cut into the deficit in the fifth inning when Travis Harrison scored on a ground out.

The Smokies later tacked on a run in both the sixth and eighth innings.  

Ryan Walker went 2-for-3 with a double and single for the Lookouts. All-in-all, a fairly forgettable night for the Chattanooga hitters.

Dillon Maples struck Nick Gordon out with runners on first and second to end the game for his first save of the season.

The teams are back in action Friday night at Smokies Park. Randy LaBlanc is expected to start for the Lookouts.

Technology: The Virtual Drug

The truth is you're probably reading this on a mobile device or your computer. As a matter of fact, I’m typing this down on a MacBook Pro. The point is technology is everywhere.
