BIRMINGHAM, Ala. - The Chattanooga Lookouts won 6-4 over the Birmingham Barons in Southern League baseball Thursday night.

Chattanooga ralled from an early 2-0 hole to win. Scott Schebler tripled, Chris O'Brien doubled and O'Koyea Dickson doubled in a three-run fourth inning for the Lookouts.

Trayce Thompson's RBI double for Birmingham in the seventh inning pulled the Barons within 4-3, but Darnell Sweeney's two-run triple in the eighth gave Chattanooga a bit of breathing room.

Dickson and Schebler each had two hits in the victory, and Jeremy Kehrt picked up the pitching win, allowing two runs on six hits over six innings. Mike Thomas allowed one hit in the final 1 1/3 innings to pick up his third save of the season.

The Lookouts begin a five-game series in Jackson, Tenn., tonight at 8:05 EDT. Andres Santiago (4-8, 5.02 ERA) is the scheduled starting pitcher for the Lookouts, with Tyler Pike (3-3, 7.65) scheduled for the Generals.
