Talk about the perfect time to peak.

With 10 wins in 11 games to close out the Southern League's first half, the Chattanooga Lookouts not only rolled to the North Division title but posted the league's top overall record at 42-28. Chattanooga trailed both Montgomery and Tennessee within the division before its recent surge that included a 9-1 mark against that duo, with all 10 of those contests coming on the road.

Chattanooga capped the half Sunday afternoon with a 10-2 rout of Tennessee and can enjoy the three-day break that coincides with the Southern League All-Star Game, which takes place tonight in Pensacola, Fla.
