KODAK, Tenn. — Charles Cutler's bases-loaded walk gave the Tennessee Smokies a 5-4 win over the Chattanooga Lookouts in the bottom of the 11th inning Friday night.
Jae-Hoon Ha singled with one out off Juan Ramon Noriega and went to third on a Noel Cuevas error on Stephen Bruno's single to center field. Christian Villanueva was intentionally walked before Cutler's unintentional base on balls brought Ha home.
The Lookouts took a 2-0 lead in the third inning when Darnell Sweeney tripled to center and Cuevas homered to left-center. Chattanooga went back up 4-3 with a two-run sixth inning highlighted by doubles by Scott Schebler and Chris O'Brien. O'Brien was 2-for-4 and Cuevas also had two hits for the Lookouts.
Game three of the five-game series is tonight at 6:15. Chris Reed (3-5, 3.25 ERA) is the scheduled starting pitcher for the Lookouts, with Corey Black (2-4, 3.25) set to start for the Smokies.
