Adam Weisenburger and Mike Walker hit consecutive one-out home runs in the ninth inning as Huntsville dealt Chattanooga one of its most disappointing losses of the season in a 5-4 victory Sunday.
The Lookouts had taken a 4-3 lead in the eighth when newcomer Jon Garcia led off with a triple to right and scored on a Miguel Rojas sacrifice to left. Chattanooga was attempting to get two games over .500 for the first time all year but instead slipped back to 6-6 in the Southern League's second half and to 41-41 overall.
Game three of a five-game series in Huntsville is tonight at 7:43 EDT.
Andres Santiago (3-6, 4.90) is scheduled to start for the Lookouts, with David Goforth (0-1, 13.50) scheduled for the Stars.
