On Monday night, the Chattanooga Lookouts defeated the Birmingham Barons by a score of 6-0 in game three of a five game series at AT&T Field. With Monday night's win, the Lookouts have successfully captured their fifth series victory of the 2017 season.
The Lookouts wasted no time, as Lookouts shortstop, Nick Gordon, led off the game for the Lookouts with a triple in the bottom of the first inning. Gordon would then score on a Edgar Corcino sacrifice fly to left field, making the score 1-0 in favor of the Lookouts. The Lookouts added another run in the bottom of the fourth inning via a Travis Harrison sacrifice fly to center field which plated Edgar Corcino.
For the second night in a row, the Lookouts offense exploded in the eighth inning, as they scored four runs in the bottom of the inning. Levi Michael got the scoring started for the Lookouts in the bottom of the eighth when he drew a bases loaded walk to score Ryan Walker from third. Lookouts designated hitter, Travis Harrison, then stepped to the plate and was hit by a pitch to bring home Corcino.
Newly acquired T.J. White then reached base safely on a high chopper to third to drive in Jonathan Rodriguez. The Lookout sixth and final run of the game came via a Dan Rohlfing bases loaded walk which allowed Levi Michael to score.
Lookouts starting pitcher, Randy LeBlanc earned his second win of the season for the Lookouts after what was without a doubt his best performance as a Lookout in 2017. LeBlanc tossed 6.0 shutout innings of baseball for the Lookouts and was named Ace of the Game. Lookouts relief pitcher, Randy Rosario, earned his first save of the season after pitching 3.0 shutout innings and striking out four.
Game four of the series is set for a 7:15 PM first pitch on Tuesday at AT&T Field. LHP, Nik Turley (0-1, 0.44) will be on the mound for the Lookouts on Tuesday and RHP, Spencer Adams (1-5, 4.10) is expected to start for the Birmingham Barons.
