The Chattanooga Lookouts of late have not played like a team loaded with All-Stars, but a couple of them arose to deliver a much-needed victory Friday. Hits still came few and far between for the Lookouts, but the differerence between this and 11 of the previous 13 nights is that a couple of them went a long, long ways. 

Lookouts All-Star hurler Zach Lee (8-7) made back-to-back homers by backup catcher Jan Vazquez and fellow All-Star Joc Pederson stand up for a sorely needed 5-2 victory over the Jackson Generals Friday at AT&T Field.   

Lee allowed only one run -- Julio Morban's solo homer -- over six strong innings (89 pitches), walking one and striking out five. But his teammates put him in the recently rare position of having a 3-0 lead in the third. 

Angelo Songco led off that inning with a walk, and Vazquez quickly followed with his second home run with the Lookouts. The crowd hadn't even settled when Pederson launched his 15th homer into the Chattanooga night over the pavillion. 

A welcome fourth run was posted, however, in the sixth thanks to some small ball. Back-to-back leadoff singles by Rafael Ynoa and newest Lookout Jeremy Moore compounded by a Morban error put runners at second and third. Reliable J.T. Wise brought the insurance run home with a ground ball. 

The Lookouts bullpen was touched for a run in the seventh, but in the home half of the inning, a single, walk and a Pederson single brought home an answering run. Chattanooga's win snapped a five game losing streak.
