HUNTSVILLE, Ala. — A five-run sixth inning enabled the Huntsville Stars to complete a five-game sweep of the Chattanooga Lookouts with a 7-5 win as the Southern League's first half concluded Saturday night.
Jason Rogers and Nick Shaw each doubled to left field in the sixth for the Stars, who sent nine to the plate and benefited from two Chattanooga errors and two wild pitches. The Lookouts (26-44) had taken a 3-2 lead in the fifth inning on Daniel Mayora's single to right that scored Raydel Sanchez and O'Koyea Dickson.
After hosting the league all-star game Tuesday night, the Lookouts will open the second half at Tennessee on Thursday night at 7:15. Nick Struck (1-4, 7.57 ERA) is the scheduled starting pitcher Thursday for the Lookouts. The Smokies will announce their starter later in the week.
