MOBILE, Ala. --- When the Chattanooga Lookouts pitching staff digs in it's heels it means that a couple of home runs added in last night was good enough for a 4-2 win over Mobile.

Despite working as a starter for the majority of the season, Anthony Marzi came on in relief for this one. Paco Rodriguez got the ball to kick off the contest, and he turned in a scoreless first inning while striking out two. Marzi then worked four innings and the bullpen finished off the victory.

Chattanooga got on the board first, thanks to an error in an attempt to throw out Mitchell Kranson. The errant throw allowed Luis Arraez to score, and the Lookouts took the lead.

Unfortunately, being on top wouldn’t last long for the Lookouts. Mobile immediately answered against Marzi in the bottom of the fourth. Pushing across two runs, they grabbed their first and only lead of the contest.

Fueled by a pair of solo blasts from Jimmy Kerrigan and Brian Navarreto, Chattanooga leapt back out in front 3-2 heading into the eighth inning. Navaretto then singled in Arraez to add an insurance run, and the 4-2 lead would be enough to get the win. 

 While the staff struck out 16 batters, Marzi and Andrew Vasquez had five each with Vasquez getting the win in relief.

The home runs were timely from Kerrigan and Navarreto. Navarreto had a two hit night along with Luis Arraez but the spot light remained on the pitching staff in the win.

Drink Up, Chattanooga

I attended the meeting to discuss the placement of the sewage treatment plant at the Cambridge Center in Ooltewah today.

Roy Exum: Dear Faux Pelini

It has been my experience that of all the tribes and herds of different people on earth, sports writers are among the funniest people of all. Oh, there isn’t anything real sexy about Villanova beating Georgetown or a baseball player hitting for the cycle. Now, if a player hits a single, double, triple and homer in that order, that’s “a natural cycle,” and that is kind of fun to ... (click for more)
