Barons beat Chattanooga Lookouts in a shootout

Birmingham completed a five-game sweep Sunday by battering Chattanooga relief pitchers for 11 runs in the sixth through eighth innings in a 16-14 win.

The Barons scored five in the eighth to take a 16-13 lead, getting two on a throwing error by Lookouts shortstop Miguel Rojas.

The Lookouts (11-19) took a 9-4 lead with a seven-run third inning, which was highlighted by two-run singles by Rojas and Yasiel Puig. Puig went 3-for-6 to raise his average to .306, while fellow outfielder Joc Pederson went 4-for-6 to raise his average to .301.

The Lookouts are off today before Mobile comes to AT&T Field for a five-game series beginning Tuesday night at 7:15.

Zach Lee (2-2, 2.56) is scheduled to start for the Lookouts, while the BayBears have not announced their starter.
