Jacksonville and Chattanooga were locked in a scoreless tie through the first 14 innings before the Lookouts tagged third baseman Adolfo Gonzalez (0-1) for a two-run home run and went on to win a 2-1 decision.

With one out, Juan Gonzalez walked and with two out Adolfo Gonzalez singled to center, cutting the Lookouts lead to 2-1. Matt Berezay singled and Ivan De Jesus walked to load the bases but Tomlin's liner didn't find the gap.

De Jesus finished with three hits, including a double and Berezay, Justis and Adolfo Gonzalez had a pair each. It was a tough day for Lucas May who was 0-for-7. The Suns left 20 runners on base, half of them in scoring position.
