Lookouts Three Errors and Eleven Walks Give Smokies an Easy 13-3 Victory

Rough night for the Lookouts in their series opener against Tennessee. Chattanooga’s defense committed three errors, while Chattanooga’s pitchers walked 11 batters. That gave the Smokies a big 13-3 victory.  

The Lookouts actually led 3-2 heading into the fourth inning, but the Tennessee Smokies scored 11 unanswered runs en route to that 13-3 victory. 

Already down two runs entering the bottom of the first inning, top prospect Miguel Sano blasted a shot over the scoreboard for his 10th homer of the year.  The home run brought home Byron Buxton who led off with a single. 

Tied at two Chattanooga took the lead in the third.  The inning began on a Heiker Meneses single.  Meneses advanced to second on a wild pitch and scored later in the inning on Jeffry Antigua’s second wild pitch of the inning. 

An inning later Tennessee reclaimed the lead on a single and a bases loaded walk.  Reliever Tim Shibuya entered the game in the fifth inning for starting pitcher David Hurlbut. The righty reliever threw two innings of shutout ball to keep the team with one run.

Once Shibuya left the game the Smokies’ offense clicked into gear scoring four runs in the seventh and five in the eighth with the help of two Lookouts errors and three walks.
