KODAK, Tenn. — The Tennessee Smokies benefited from two Chattanooga errors and a two-run single to center field by Chad Noble to score four runs in the sixth inning and defeat the Lookouts 6-5 in Southern League baseball Sunday.
That ended a five-game winning streak for the Lookouts, who led 3-2 before Tennessee's four-run sixth. Chattanooga (33-23) pulled within one run in the ninth inning on a Rafael Ynoa single to right that scored Jake Lemmerman.
Chattanooga started strong with Luis Nunez's two-run home run in the first inning and Griff Erickson's solo homer in the second.
Game two of the five-game series is tonight at 7:15. Aaron Miller (6-6, 4.46 ERA) is the scheduled starting pitcher for the Lookouts, with Nick Struck (13-10, 3.48) scheduled for the Smokies.
