Chattanooga Lookouts bats won the battle with eight hits but lost for the second night scoring only a pair of runs in the 3-2 defeat in Jacksonville. 

 Zander Wiel had two extra base hits and an RBI as did Jaylin Davis.

It was a great night for starter Sean Poppen, that is until the seventh inning when the Jumbo Shrimp hit two jumbo home runs to take the lead for good. The Lookouts starter had faced the minimum number of batters until then allowing just two hits.

Two double plays kept the Shrimp off the bases earlier. Then a two run belt with one on by Isan Diaz was followed by a two out solo shot by Joe Dunand and the bullpen retired nine in a row for the second win in the series for Jacksonville.

He just turned out the best political aspirant I have had a conversation with in the last ... (click for more)
