The Chattanooga Lookouts are having to hit the road again, but they left their fans smiling Friday night. 

Getting a superb start from right-hander Ross Stripling, the Lookouts scored early and did not stop in winning 5-0.

Heading to Huntsville for the holiday weekend, the Lookouts will trot out Zach Lee tonight at 6:43 Eastern in hopes of keep their run of quality starts alive. 

Stripling (7-1 overall, 5-1 with the Lookouts), worked deeper into a game than at any time during the 2013 season. The right-hander out of Texas A&M walked no one and allowed only a leadoff single to Kevin Kiermaier in the first, and a Hector Guevara double with one out in the sixth. In between, he recorded 16 straight outs, beginning with a double play. 

The Lookouts wasted no time staking Stripling to a lead.  In the first, Angelo Songco brought home a run on a ground ball, and it grew to 2-0 in the second on a Miguel Rojas RBI double. 

That lead stood until the fifth, when a bases loaded single by Bobby Coyle brought in a pair of runs. A Songco sacrifice fly in the sixth padded the margin to 5-0. 

For the Lookouts, the heart of their order -- Pederson, Brian Cavazos-Galvez and newcomer Sean Burroughs -- had two hits apiece Friday, with Burroughs getting a double as part of his night. Pederson, who got his average back up to .304, also had a stolen base Friday. 

Stripling gave way to Jharel Cotton in the ninth, and the right-hander from St. Thomas, the Vrgin Islands completed the two-hitter. That gave the Lookouts their ninth shutout of the season, which ties Birmingham for the league lead.
