It didn't erase a disastrous two months, but the Chattanooga Lookouts put together two nice games on the same night.

Chattanooga starting pitcher Chris Reed collected his first win at AT&T Field with Monday's 2-0 triumph over Jacksonville in the first game, and the Lookouts came alive at the plate in the second contest, thrashing the Suns 7-0. The sweep gives the Lookouts three wins in their last four games after they fell out of the Southern League landscape with a 6-29 skid.

Reed, who was called up to Chattanooga in June 2012, collected eight strikeouts in his seven scoreless innings to improve to 4-10 overall this season. A J.T. Wise home run to right field in the first inning gave Chattanooga a 1-0 lead, and Rafael Ynoa's two-out double to left in the fifth inning scored Reed to cap the scoring.

The Lookouts (19-38) started even stronger in the second game, getting a three-run homer to center by Joc Pederson in the first inning. Chattanooga scored four runs in the third inning, highlighted by a Sean Burroughs triple to center that scored Angelo Songco and Jon Garcia, which was followed by Matt Wallach's single to right that scored Burroughs.
