Jeremy Moore’s one-out home run to right-center field off Arcenio Leon in the bottom of the 13th inning gave the Chattanooga Lookouts a 2-1 victory over Huntsville in Thursday night’s Southern League baseball game at AT&T Field.
It ended an 11-game losing streak for the Lookouts, who improved to 15-31 in the league’s second half.
Chattanooga entered the ninth inning with one hit and trailing 1-0, but Moore was hit by a pitch and advanced to second on a wild pitch. Brian Cavazos-Galvez then singled to right field to tie the game.
The Stars had led 1-0 since the sixth inning, when Jason Rogers led off with a single to center and scored on Anderson De La Rosa’s two-out single to right.
Duke von Schamann (3-4) was the winning pitcher, working two innings. Catcher Matt Wallach was 2-for-4 for Chattanooga.
Game three of the series is tonight at 7:15.
