Nick Struck pitched six scoreless innings and got plenty of support Friday night as the Chattanooga Lookouts cruised to a 7-3 win over Birmingham before a crowd of 3,738 at AT&T Field.
Chattanooga took a 1-0 lead in the first inning on a home run to right field by Bobby Coyle and extended its advantage to 3-0 in the second when Corey Seager singled to center and Daniel Mayora homered to left.
The Lookouts scored three runs in the fifth inning to take a 6-0 lead, Seager highlighting that outburst with a single to right that scored Darnell Sweeney and Coyle.
Chattanooga and Birmingham will play again tonight at 7:15, which will be Used Car Night. Matt Shelton (2-3, 4.83 ERA) is the scheduled starting pitcher for the Lookouts, with Angel Sanchez (1-11, 6.96) listed for the Barons.
