Lookouts blank Montgomery again 6-0

Posted: Updated:
MONTGOMERY, Ala. (milb.com)- The Chattanooga Lookouts are starting to live up to their name. Though rain delayed first pitch by 43 minutes, Doug Mientkiewicz's men were unfazed, shutting out the Biscuits 6-0 on Sunday afternoon at Riverwalk Stadium. The victory was Chattanooga's third straight following the Biscuits walk off win on Opening Night.

Biscuits starting pitcher Reinaldo Lopez was effective, allowing just three hits and no earned runs while striking out seven Lookouts over six innings for a no-decision in his Double-A debut. Lookouts starter DJ Baxendale (1-0) kept pace on the other side tossing 6.1 innings of shutout ball for the win.

The game remained scoreless until the 7th inning when Travis Harrison's two-run single off lefty Jordan Harrison (0-1) gave Chattanooga a 2-0 lead. Designated hitter Mike Gonzales then doubled in a run for the second consecutive game, which made it 4-0 in the ninth before Chattanooga added two more runs to make it a 6-0 game.

The Biscuits, who have scored six of their nine runs this season in the ninth inning, went 1-2-3 in their last three at bats just before the heavens opened up again for the afternoon's second spell of torrential rain.

The Biscuits will try to stop their skid and notch their second victory of the year and complete the five-game series against Chattanooga tomorrow morning at 10:35. RH Mikey O'Brien will be on the hill for the Biscuits while the Lookouts have not yet announced their starter.
