The Chattanooga Lookouts entered August with a 40-69 overall record and a 14-25 mark in the Southern League's second half.

The Chattanooga Lookouts' incredible late-second-half comeback in the Southern League standings culminated fittingly with a late-second-game comeback Sunday night at AT&T Field.

The Chattanooga Lookouts' game against the Tennessee Smokies was rained out Saturday night, further muddying the second-half playoff situation in the Southern League North Division.

While winning or losing can be secondary to player development in minor league baseball, both components are coming together this weekend at AT&T Field.

NEW YORK — Mike Minor took a two-hit shutout into the eighth inning after hitting a double and single himself, leading the Atlanta Braves over the New York Mets 6-1 Thursday night.

Thursday night marked the 136th scheduled game of the season for the Chattanooga Lookouts and the 66th at AT&T Field, but there was something very different about it.

NEW YORK — Braves pitchers are thankful Andrelton Simmons is their shortstop and not another powerful pitching arm.

NEW YORK — Juan Lagares hit a two-run homer and ran down one ball after another in center field, sending Dillon Gee and the New York Mets to a 3-2 victory over the Atlanta Braves on Tuesday night.

JACKSON, Tenn. — The Chattanooga Lookouts are in a tie for first place after beating the Jackson Generals 8-2 on Tuesday night.

JACKSON, Tenn. — D.J. Peterson's two-out single to center field in the seventh inning Monday night scored Tyler Mariette and Patrick Brady to propel the Jackson Generals to a 2-1 Southern League victory over Chattanooga and deny the Lookouts a share of the Southern League's North Division lead.

Patrick Kivlehan's two-run home run to left field highlighted a three-run first inning for Jackson, which dealt Chattanooga its first loss of the series with a 4-2 win Sunday.
