While fans of the Chattanooga Lookouts were benefiting from free cars Saturday on "Used Car Night" at AT&T Field, the Lookouts were benefiting from the Jackson Generals' pitching.

The Lookouts drew seven walks in waltzing to an 8-3 victory. It was the second consecutive win after five straight losses for Chattanooga, which improved to 14-20 in the Southern League's second half entering a 10-game road trip that begins today in Jacksonville.

Saturday's game was tied at 3 in the middle of the fifth inning, when the Lookouts seized control with a Miguel Rojas double to left field, a Matt Wallach walk, a Joc Pederson walk to load the bases, a Rafael Ynoa RBI single to center, a Jeremy Moore walk that made it 5-3, and a Brian Cavazos-Galvez single to left that drove in two.

Pederson, Ynoa and Rojas had two hits apiece for the Lookouts, whose eight runs matched their offensive output from the first four games of the series combined.

A crowd of 6,393 attended Saturday's game, the first sellout at AT&T since May 7.
