The Chattanooga Lookouts ended a disappointing month on a positive note Saturday night at AT&T Field, defeating Mobile 7-6 before a crowd of 4,254.
Scott Schebler's home run to right field with two out in the ninth inning propelled the Lookouts to a second consecutive one-run triumph. Schebler's homer was his 10th this season.
Chattanooga wound up 11-20 in May after going 11-14 in April.
The Lookouts took a 2-0 lead in the first inning on Brian Cavazos-Galvez's two-out single to left that scored two runs. They went up 3-0 in the third inning on a Noel Cuevas RBI single to right and extended it to 5-0 moments later when starting pitcher Nick Struck hit a two-run single to left.
Mobile then reeled off the next six runs, taking a 6-5 lead in the fifth inning on Jon Griffin's three-run double to right. The Lookouts pulled into a 6-6 tie in the seventh when O'Koyea Dickson doubled to center and scored on Chris O'Brien's single to center.
The Lookouts had a frustrating month but did erupt on two occasions at AT&T, whipping Huntsville 17-6 on May 14 and drubbing Mississippi 15-4 on May 22.
Tyson Brummett (4-4, 1.79 ERA) is scheduled to start today's 2:15 game on the mound for the Lookouts, with A.J. Schagel (2-1, 3.62) scheduled for the BayBears.
