Walk-off Walk Gives Lookouts Win

Chattanooga wins the third game of the series against the Mississippi Braves with a walk-off walk in the ninth inning 2-1.

After losing the first two games of the series the Lookouts had to stop the Braves tonight to stay in the series, and Chattanooga did just that.

The Lookouts starting pitcher, Andres Santiago, kept the Braves at bay through the sixth inning. Santiago retired eight batters with his time on the mound and managed to only walk two batters. He gave up two hits, and one run; however the run wasn't earned.

Hector Nelo relieved Santiago in the seventh inning and struck out three batters of his own in the two innings he pitched, only giving up one hit.

Chattanooga sent in Jose Dominguez in the ninth inning to close up the game, who struck out all three batters. Dominguez turned up the heat to assure no hitter would make it on base by pitching between 80 mph and 100 mph.

Chattanooga scored it's first run in the third inning when Brian Cavazos-Galvez hit a double down third base line bringing in Joc Pederson from second.

The Lookouts finished the night with bases loaded and Angelo Songco up to bat. Songco stared down the pitcher with a full count and caught a break when the ball came in to far left sending Songco to first and bringing in Bobby Coyle from third base giving Chattanooga a walk-off walk and it's first win of the series against the Mississippi Braves.
