Lookouts blanked again by Barons

Posted: Updated:

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WRCB) -- Chattanooga mustered just one hit and was shut out for the fourth time in its last eight games in Monday night's 7-0 loss to Birmingham.

The Lookouts lost four of their five games with the Barons in the series, three of them by shutout.

Scott Snodgrass (10-7) carried a no-hitter into the 9th inning and was two outs away from the historic feat when Matt Wallach broke it up with a single. Snodgrass struck out five and walked three before J.R. Ballinger entered to record the final two outs.

It's the second time in the series the Lookouts' finished with just one hit.

Garrett Gould (1-2) gave up four earned runs in five innings to take the loss. Gould struck out four and allowed just four hits, but two of them were home runs by Marcus Semien.

Semien hit a solo shot off in the third to start the scoring, then added a three-run shot in the fifth to push the Barons' advantage to 4-0.

Tyler Saladino, Trayce Thompson and Dan Black delivered three consecutive run-scoring hits off Ross Stripling in the seventh to cap the scoring.

The Lookouts (12-17 in second half, 47-52 overall) return home Tuesday to open a five-game series with Jackson at AT&T Field. First pitch is slated for 7:15 p.m. ET.
