BILOXI, Miss. (AP) -- Jacob Nottingham doubled and singled, as the Biloxi Shuckers exploded for a season-high in runs in a 9-3 win over the Chattanooga Lookouts on Thursday.

The Lookouts were out hit 12 to 7 and committed two errors in their second consecutive loss.

Chattanooga cut the deficit to 2-1 in the fifth after Edgar Corcino hit an RBI single, bringing home Ryan Strausborger.

Biloxi answered in the bottom of the frame, scoring five runs to extend its lead. The Shuckers sent 10 men to the plate as Art Charles hit a two-run single en route to the six-run lead.

The Lookouts were behind for the entire game after giving up a run in the bottom of the first inning. Starter Romero made it into the fifth inning, but left and was charged with six earned runs, and one more unearned run. He gave up five hits, walked four and struck out four.

He was replaced by Luke Bard who gave up six hits in just 1 2/3 innings and was charged with two runs (one earned) before giving way to Raul Fernandez who had a great relief appearance with the pressure off. Fernandez struck out five, walked one, and gave up just one hit in two innings of scoreless relief.

The Lookouts scattered seven hits, but didn’t get any hits from their leadoff man Nick Gordon, 0-for-4 with a strikeout, a walk and a stolen base. Travis Harrison was the only hitter with multiple hits, 2-for-4.

Former first-round draft pick Levi Michael remained hot with a 1-3 night that included a double, a walk, an RBI and a run scored.

Forrest Snow (3-2) got the win in relief while Chattanooga starter Fernando Romero (2-5) took the loss in the Southern League game.

But, other than the obvious attempt by agenda-pushers ... (click for more)
