Chattanooga is heading home on a nine-game winning streak after sweeping two seven-inning games Sunday to sweep the five-game series in Montgomery, winning 4-0 and 4-3.

Starting pitcher Steve Smith dominated the first game for the Lookouts, allowing three hits in seven innings while striking out five.

Chris O'Brien's double to left field in the fifth inning scored Corey Seager to break a scoreless tie in the opener, and Daniel Mayora added an RBI triple to right in the sixth.

The Lookouts (23-25) opened the second game with Darnell Sweeney and Scott Schebler collecting solo home runs to right in the first inning. O'Koyea Dickson hit a two-run homer to left in the fourth.

The Lookouts are off today before hosting Jacksonville for a five-game series, with the opener set for Tuesday night at 7:15.

Both teams are expected to set their rotations today.
