SEVIERVILLE, TENNESSEE - Father's Day was not kind to the Smokies as they fell to the Lookouts 10-2 on Sunday afternoon. Smokies Stadium served as a Home Run Derby as the two teams combined to hit four home runs.

 

Jason Vosler and Cael Brockmeyer were responsible for the pair of Tennessee runs as they each hit a solo home run. Vosler's home run was his 13th of the season. Kevin Cornelius finished 2-for-3 at the plate. 

 

Preston Morrison didn't have his best stuff on the mound, giving up six runs in six innings of work. Daury Torrez and Justin Hancock came on in relief, combining to pitch three innings. Torrez allowed three runs, all unearned. 

 

The Smokies wrap up the first-half of the season in fourth place with a 36-32 record. Eight Smokies will head to Pensacola for the Southern League All-Star Game, with James Pugliese joining the North Division roster as a late addition. Pugliese has posted an impressive 4-2 record with a 0.91 ERA through the first half of the season. 

 

Following the All-Star break, Tennessee will head to Mobile for a five-game series with the BayBears.
