PENSACOLA, Fla. (WRCB) -- Ryan Dennick pitched six shutout innings and Tucker Barnhart drove in two runs to lead Pensacola to a 5-1 win over Chattanooga Monday night in game two of a five-game Southern League series at Pensacola Bayfront Stadium.
Barnhart's lone hit was a two-run single in a three-run first inning that put the Blue Wahoos (13-22) ahead to stay.
Lookouts' starter Chris Reed (1-4) lasted just three-and-a-third innings, his third consecutive start of less than five innings. The left-hander struggled with his control, giving up five walks and five hits while allowing four earned runs.
He also struck out six.
Dennick was far smoother, allowing just two hits and striking out three after taking over for Manny Parra in the second inning. Parra made the start as part of his minor-league rehab stint, but was on a 20-pitch limit. He struck out two and gave up one hit while throwing 13 pitches in a scoreless first.
Four of Chattanooga's six hits were doubles, but only Chris Jacobs' two-bagger in the top of the ninth produced a run. The Lookouts (15-22) went 0-for-7 with runners in scoring position and stranded five runners on base.
The two teams will play game three of the series Tuesday at 8 p.m. ET.
