The Chattanooga Lookouts defeated the Montgomery Biscuits 3-2 in extra innings on Friday night in game two of the final regular season series. Chattanooga got on the board first in the bottom of the first inning courtesy of a sacrifice fly from the bat of LaMonte Wade, which allowed Nick Gordon to tag and score from third base, giving the Lookouts an early 1-0 lead.
Lookouts starting pitcher, Dereck Rodriguez (5-4, 4.28), was lights out for the Lookouts on the mound. The right-hander put together one of his best performances of the season as he allowed just two hits and two unearned runs in 6.0 innings pitched. Rodriguez also struck out seven and walked one.
Chattanooga maintained their 1-0 lead until the top of the fifth inning when Montgomery's Jake Cronenworth ripped an RBI single to center field, allowing both Justin Williams and Mac James to score, making the score 2-1 in favor of the Biscuits.
The Lookouts tied the game in the bottom of the eighth inning via a line drive RBI single from Wade. Corcino scored from second base on the single from Wade. After both teams failed to manufacture anymore runs in regulation, the game went into extra innings.
In the bottom of the eleventh inning Chattanooga broke through when Corcino provided the Lookouts with a timely two out RBI ground ball single to right field, which allowed Brian Navarreto to score the game winning run from second base to give the Lookouts a 3-2 walk-off victory.
Lookouts closer, Gabriel Moya (6-1, 0.77), earned the win for the Lookouts. On the night, Moya tossed 2.0 scoreless innings, did not allow a hit, and struck out three. Biscuits relief pitcher, Kyle Winkler (3-2, 3.14), suffered the loss. Kyle Bird (4-2, 3.03), suffered a blown save.
