Barons Beat Lookouts 7-2 in Rain Shortened Game

( A five-run fifth inning has fueled Birmingham to 7-2 a victory in their series opener against the Chattanooga Lookouts at AT&T Field on Tuesday night. Pitching in relief during a rain-shortened game, left-hander Andy Fisher allowed a pair of bases-loaded walks to drive in a pair of Barons runs.

Earlier in the game, Byrd Tenerowicz hit his fifth homer of the season deep over the left-field wall to account for Chattanooga’s only runs of the night. All five of Tenerowicz’s long balls have come in the month of May, where he is hitting .318 with eight extra-base hits and 13 runs batted in. Shortstop Matt McLain swiped his 11th base of the season, ranking third among all Southern League North division players.

On Wednesday, the Lookouts and Barons will continue their matchup as Andrew Abbot will toe the rubber for Chattanooga in his third Double-A start.
