Lookouts Lose Another Close Game Tuesday At Montgomery With 2-1 Defeat By Biscuits

Chattanooga Takes On Birmingham Wednesday To Finish First Half Play

Tuesday, June 12, 2018

Montgomery, AL --  Short of starting pitchers, Lookouts' Manager Tommy Watkins went to his bullpen again with relievers Todd Van Steensel, Williams Ramirez (L 3-4), Paco Rodriquez, and Ryne Harper. In one of the best pitched games of the series from both teams, the Biscuits ruled in Tuesday's 2-1.

The Lookouts were held to three hits and a single run losing their fourth game of the series to Montgomey. The first five hitters in the Chattanooga lineup were hitless.

Already hurting from a depletion of position players moving up to Triple A, Chattanooga's Zander Wiel has gone on the disabled list (effective June 10). The roster now stands at 24 active players and five on the disabled list.

Montgomery would take a third inning lead off the home run from Peter Maris.

In the fourth the Looks come back with two out and two walks adding an Alex Perez single to tie the game. That would be their last hit until the seventh and their last run of the game

Montgomery would not get another hit but did work Lookouts pitching for three consecutive walks and a sacrifice fly to take the lead. The last eight Looks were retired in a row.
