Lookouts top Suns for fourth straight win

Posted: Updated:

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (WRCB) -- J.T. Wise and Griff Erickson had two hits apiece and combined to drive in four runs as Chattanooga won its fourth straight with a 7-3 victory over Jacksonville at the Baseball Grounds on Friday night.

The win pushes the Lookouts (5-4) over the .500 mark for the first time this season. They'll try to complete the five-game sweep of the Suns on Saturday.

Wise delivered a two-run double in a three-run second inning, and Erickson added a two-run single to highlight a three-run third for a 6-0 lead.

The Suns answered with three of their own in the bottom half of the inning, but the scoring stalled until Pedro Baez's sacrifice fly in the ninth provided the final margin.

Matt Magill started for Chattanooga and gave up three earned runs on four hits in four innings. He walked four and struck out eight before leaving after 98 pitches. Geison Aguasviva (1-0) pitched two scoreless innings of relief to pick up the win.
