JUMBO SHRIMP 5, LOOKOUTS 2
Sunday's road recap: The Chattanooga Lookouts played the final 13 games of the Southern League's first half without winning consecutive contests, and they've played the first 17 games of the second half without a two-win streak as well. Jacksonville scored four runs with two out in the second inning to take control, leaving Chattanooga 5-12 in the second half and 41-45 overall. The second-inning surge for the Jumbo Shrimp began when Lookouts starting pitcher Omar Bencomo hit Rodrigo Vigil with a pitch and then walked Brian Schales to load the bases. A throwing error by new Chattanooga shortstop Taylor Motter allowed two runs to score, and Monte Harrison hit a two-run single to make it 4-0. The Lookouts got on the board when Zander Wiel opened the fourth inning with a home run to left-center field.
Next up: Game two of a four-game series at Jacksonville is tonight at 7:05.
Pitchers: Sean Poppen (2-4, 5.05) is scheduled to start for the Lookouts, with Jordan Yamamoto (0-0, 0.00) scheduled for the Jumbo Shrimp.
Transactions: Outfielder Tanner English, who is hitting .204 with 17 RBIs in 66 games, was put on the disabled list (lower back sprain). He was replaced on the roster by Motter, who has played in seven games this season with both the Seattle Mariners and the Minnesota Twins, and he arrived from Triple-A Rochester (New York), where he hit .167 in 13 games.
