(Lookouts Media Relations)- Starting pitcher Nick Greenwood only allowed one run over eight innings to lead the Lookouts to a 2-1 victory. The win was the team's third straight, their longest win streak of the year.

Greenwood gave up his only run of the game in the third inning on a RBI by Brett Phillips. After that run the lefty only surrendered four hits the rest of the way.

With their starting pitcher on cruise control the Lookouts offense provided all the run support he would need in the sixth and seventh innings. In the sixth the team tied the game up on back-to-back doubles by Daniel Palka and Travis Harrison. An inning later they took the lead on a Joe Maloney RBI single.

Lookouts reliever Omar Bencomo took over for Greenwood in the top of the ninth and closed out the Shuckers to earn his first career save.

Chattanooga looks to extend their winning streak to four when they take on the Shuckers at 7:15 p.m. tomorrow. LHP David Hurlbut is on the bump for Chattanooga against fellow southpaw Josh Hader.
