Kyle Waldrop drove in all the runs for Pensacola on Saturday night in a 3-1 Southern League baseball win over Chattanooga at AT&T Field.

The game was tied at 1 entering the ninth inning, and Lookouts relief pitcher Juan Noriega struck out the first two batters he faced. Brodie Greene reached on a throwing error by third baseman Daniel Mayora and Yorman Rodriguez walked to set up Waldrop's deciding two-run double to right field.

Chattanooga still won three of five games in the series and is 5-5 in the league's second half.

Pensacola took a 1-0 lead in the fifth inning when a Waldrop single to right scored Ryan Wright. The Lookouts tied it in the eighth when Casio Grider singled to right and scored on Alberto Rosario's single to center.

The Lookouts continue their 10-game homestand today by hosting Birmingham at 5:15.
