(Lookouts Media Relations)- Travis Harrison knocked in Leonardo Reginatto on a RBI single in the bottom of the 11th inning to give the Lookouts the 6-5 win over the Tennessee Smokies. The extra-inning contest clocked in at 4:12 which is the team's longest of the season.  

Hours earlier the Smokies held a 1-0 lead in the third inning. Down a run the Lookouts offense struck a big blow. A single by Zack Granite and two walks loaded the bases for Daniel Palka who hit a mammoth 463 foot grand slam to make it 4-1 Lookouts. The dinger was Palka's seventh homer of the year and second grand slam.  

Tennessee found themselves down, but not out as they scored one run in the fourth and two in the fifth to knot the game up at four. The Lookouts seized back the lead in the bottom of that inning on Harrison RBI ground out. The game remained 5-4 for two innings due to Jake Reed's strong outing. The righty only allowed one hit while striking out four batters.  

In the eighth the pesky Smokies scored again to even the score at five runs. With the score tied the Lookouts bullpen took over. Trever Hildenberger came on in the ninth and pitched one shutout inning to lower his ERA to 1.29 on the year. Luke Westphal came in after and struck out five Smokies' in just two innings. The team's lock-down bullpen paved the way for Harrison's heroics in the 11th. Before the walk-off hit Reginatto coaxed a walk out of Miguel Mejia and then stole second. The infielder reached third on a ground out and then home on Harrison's single to win the game.

Tomorrow is game four of the series and Salute to Heroes Night at AT&T Field. First pitch is set for 7:15 p.m. with gates opening at 6:00 p.m.
