KODAK, Tenn. - The Chattanooga Lookouts completed a game suspended Friday night with a 14-inning 5-4 victory Saturday and then beat the Tennessee Smokies again, 6-1. That made the Lookouts 11-6 in the second half of the Southern League season.

Chattanooga played its second consecutive 14-inning game and came out on top this time when Hector Gimenez doubled to right field, advanced to third on Kyle Russell's single to right and scored on Travis Denker's sacrifice fly to center. The game was a resumption of Friday night's rain-plagued contest that was suspended after nine innings and deadlocked at 4.

Gimenez picked up where he left off in the regularly scheduled game, homering to left-center in the first inning to put the Lookouts up 1-0. Brian Cavazos-Galvez, Scott Van Slyke and Griff Erickson also had solo homers for Chattanooga.

Game three of a four-game series at Kodak, Tenn., is today at 5. Chris Withrow (3-5, 4.04 ERA) is scheduled to start on the mound for the Lookouts, with Ryan Searle (2-0, 3.75) scheduled for the Smokies.
