Chattanooga Lookouts lose finale at Jacksonville

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — The Chattanooga Lookouts' bullpen struggles reached a new level in a 12-9 loss Wednesday afternoon in the team's Southern League series finale against the Jacksonville Suns.

Ryan Acosta and Greg Infante combined to allow seven runs while recording just one out in the ninth inning.

The Lookouts (9-11) lost a 5-3 advantage in the eighth inning when Christian Yelch hit a two-run double to center field, but the visitors snatched a 9-5 lead in the ninth on a three-run home run to left by Miguel Rojas followed by a homer to left-center by Blake Smith.

Yelch hit another two-run double to pull Jacksonville into a 9-9 tie, and Marcell Ozuna won it for the Suns with a three-run homer to left-center.

Chattanooga will be home to open a five-game series against Jackson tonight at 7:15 at AT&T Field. Zach Lee (2-0, 1.17 ERA) is scheduled to get the pitching start for the Lookouts.
