Lookouts Pitching Dominates Blue Wahoos

The Lookouts elevate themselves to a four game winning streak after beating Pensacola 1-0 Friday night.

o far in the series against the Blue Wahoos the Chattanooga Lookouts have shown that they have what it takes to put wins together back to back. Winning both their game yesterday 5-3 and winning tonight's close game of 1-0.

"I think that the reason we're in the midst of a four game winning streak is because we're executing the game properly," Manager Jody Reed said. "Pitchers are coming in and attacking hitters. We're not getting a ton of hits, but we are manufacturing some runs. Just kind of buying time until the offense starts clicking, but sometimes you have to do that and the defense continues to be stellar."

The game between the Lookouts and the Blue Wahoos remained scoreless until the sixth inning with Chattanooga's Rafael Ynoa scored off of a line drive from Joc Pederson that went right back at the pitcher to centerfield.

There were a couple of close calls for Chattanooga Friday night when the Lookouts were faced with runners on third at twice, but were never given a chance to make it home.

Chris Reed started the game for the Lookouts on the mound and stayed for five innings, ending on a pitch count of 58.

Rob Rasmussen replaced Reed in the sixth inning who pitched for two innings.

The last two innings of the game were split between Yimi Garcia and Jose Dominguez who both pitched for one inning.

"I hope the confidence is building," Reed said. "Putting wins back to back always helps your confidence. I know that they see when you execute the game properly that you put yourself in an opportunity to win baseball games, and pull out these close games and that's what you have to do. You have to win these one or two run ball games that makes the difference in your season."
