Posted: Updated:

CHATTANOOGA (Lookouts) -- Alfredo Marte drove in five runs to lead the Mobile to a 9-5 win over Chattanooga Thursday night at AT&T Field.

Lookouts' starter Allen Webster (1-4) coasted before coming undone. Mobile got to the Lookouts ace with five runs in the top of the fourth and three more in the fifth to build an 8-3 lead.

Marte did the most damage in each inning, hitting a three-run homer in the fourth and a two-run double in the fifth.

Webster left after five innings having given up eight runs (six earned) on six hits while striking out six and walking two.

Chattanooga's Nick Buss hit his first home run of the year, a solo shot in the sixth, and added a second RBI on a groundout in the eighth. Pedro Baez and Rafael Ynoa each added two hits apiece.

Brent Cleven also homered for Mobile.

BayBears' starter Trevor Bauer (5-0) stayed unbeaten on the year despite giving up four runs (three earned). He struck out nine while walking three and scattering six hits across six innings.

The two teams will play game three of their five-game series at 7:15 p.m. ET on Friday night. Former Chattanooga quarterback B.J. Coleman will throw out the ceremonial first pitch, and fireworks will follow the game.
