Lookouts Strike Out 14 in 5-2 Win Over Biloxi Saturday

Posted: Updated:

(Lookouts Media Relations)- The Chattanooga Lookouts struck out 14 in a 5-2 Win Over the Biloxi Shuckers in front of a sell out crowd of 6,376 fans at AT&T Field Saturday night.

Zack Granite kicked his big night with a single to center field. The speedy outfielder scored a play later on a Shannon Wilkerson double. Daniel Palka then increased the team's early lead to three on his team leading sixth home run of the season.

In the second inning Biloxi closed the deficit to two on a Victor Roache home run, but DJ Baxendale sat down the next two batters to get out of the inning. After allowing the homer, Baxendale cruised, striking out nine over the course of six innings.

Lookouts relievers Corey Williams and Trevor Hildenberger also turned in solid performances. Williams struck out two batters in a scoreless seventh inning while Hildenberger recorded his second save of the year.

Chattanooga's final runs of the day came on a Daniel Palka ground out in the fifth and a Wilkerson RBI single in the seventh.

Sunday, the Lookouts try to take game two of the series against the Shuckers in a 2:15 Sunday Matinee. LHP Nick Greenwood will take the mound against RHP Jorge Ortega.
