Biscuits Win Slugfest 9-7 Against the Lookouts

( The Chattanooga Lookouts scored five unanswered runs, but couldn’t overcome a seven run deficit in a 9-7 loss to the Montgomery Biscuits.

Chattanooga got off to a hot start early, scoring a run in the second inning on a Brian Navarreto RBI single and one in the third on a Jaylin Davis triple. The two run lead melted away in the top of the fourth as Montgomery scored on an RBI single and a sacrifice fly.

Montgomery began to pull away in the fifth as they racked up four runs on two walks and three hits. They added a run in the sixth and two in the seventh to increase their lead to seven.

In the bottom of the seventh the home team began to rally. In that inning two straight walks led to Andy Wilkins driving home a run. In the eighth the Lookouts cut the deficit down to three on a Brent Rooker three-run home run. His homer was his 15th of the year and his fifth of the year against the Biscuits. Rooker is now tied for second in the league in home runs and second in the league in RBIs with 53.

The Lookouts continued their rally into the ninth inning with an RBI single by Jordan Gore, but Luis Arraez flew out to end the game.

RHP J.D. Martin snagged the win for the Biscuits as RHP Williams Ramirez took the loss for the Lookouts. Tomorrow, the teams return for game three of the series at 7:15 p.m.
