The Chattanooga bullpen faltered and squandered a solid start by Nick Struck with an 8-4 loss in Huntsville on Sunday.
Struck allowed just four hits and a single run over six innings and left with a lead, but Mike Thomas, Blake Smith and Daniel Colombie combined to allow seven runs on nine hits over two innings.
Smith took the loss, while Huntsville's David Goforth picked up the win in relief.
Yadiel Rivera was 4-for-4 with an RBI and two runs for the Stars, while Kentrall DAvis and Nick Ramirez each had two RBIs in the win.
Darnell Sweeney and Chris Obrien each had three hits for Chattanooga.
Game three of a five-game series in Huntsville is tonight at 7:30 EDT.
Matt Shelton (2-3, 4.94 ERA) is scheduled to start for the Lookouts, with Eric Marzec (1-2, 4.39) scheduled for the Stars.
