The Chattanooga Lookouts made the most of two-out opportunities Saturday night in a 6-3 win over Birmingham at AT&T Field.

Chattanooga's first five runs scored with two outs. Bobby Coyle's double to left field in the fifth inning brought in Walter Ibarra and Darnell Sweeney to put the Lookouts ahead to stay at 3-2, and they made it 5-2 in the seventh inning when O'Koyea Dickson singled to center to score J.C. Boscan and Sweeney.

The Lookouts improved to 16-25 in the Southern League's second half and are within 5 1/2 games of the division-leading Barons (22-20). A sellout crowd of 6,371 on Used Car Night attended Saturday's game.

Chattanooga and Birmingham will play again today at 2:15.
