HOOVER, Ala. - The Chattanooga Lookouts rallied to beat the Birmingham Barons 6-5 in Southern League baseball Saturday night.

Jan Vazquez and Jeremy Moore homered to right field in the top of the ninth inning to propel Chattanooga to its first win since the league's all-star break.

The Lookouts (12-15 second half) appeared headed for a third consecutive shutout loss when they entered the seventh inning trailing the Barons 4-0, but Brian Cavazos-Galvez made it a one-run game with a three-run homer to left. Mike Blanke had an RBI double in the seventh to put Birmingham up 5-3, but the Lookouts got within 5-4 in the eighth when Rafael Ynoa doubled and scored on a wild pitch.

Game four of the five-game series is today at 4 EDT. Zach Lee (7-6, 2.98 ERA) is the scheduled starting pitcher for the Lookouts, with Nick McCully (7-3, 3.08) scheduled for the Barons.
