The Chattanooga Lookouts scored five unanswered runs, but couldn't overcome a seven run deficit in a 9-7 loss to the Montgomery Biscuits. 

LHP Anthony Marzi started and gave up two unearned runs on five hits and a walk in four innings. He struck out three.

Williams Ramirez came on and gave up five runs on five hits and two walks in just two innings.

Sam Clay entered and gave up two runs on one hit but three walks in his inning.

Tyler Jay struck out three over two scoreless innings.

Chattanooga got off to a hot start early, scoring a run in the second inning on a Brian Navarreto RBI single and one in the third on a Jaylin Davis triple. The two run lead melted away in the top of the fourth as Montgomery scored on an RBI single and a sacrifice fly.  

Montgomery began to pull away in the fifth as they racked up four runs on two walks and three hits. They added a run in the sixth and two in the seventh to increase their lead to seven.  

In the bottom of the seventh Chattanooga began to rally. In that inning two straight walks led to Andy Wilkins driving home a run.

Brent Rooker hit a three-run homer in the eighth inning that got the Lookouts close. He went 2-for-3 with two walks and the homer was his 15th. He also stole two bases and has five on the year. His homer was his 15th of the year and his fifth of the year against the Biscuits. 

The Lookouts continued their rally into the ninth inning with an RBI single by Jordan Gore, but Luis Arraez flew out to end the game.

Roy Exum: Lee In A Landslide

The first time I met Bill Lee, the guy who is triggering a huge turnout of Tennessee voters across the state, I instantly liked him, admired him, and must have told a dozen friends that day we have the most exciting guy going to the Governor’s Mansion we’ve ever had. The best reason is because Bill Lee is real. His opponent, Karl Dean, is a Democrat and a longtime politician. Go ... (click for more)
