Chattanooga Lookouts lose fifth straight despite big nights from Mitch Nay, Ibandel Isabel

The Chattanooga Lookouts are not sad to see the Jackson Generals leave town after the visitors won their fifth game in a row at AT&T Field.

Tuesday's 7-5 Generals win came despite another stellar night from Chattanooga's Bash Brothers. Ibandel Isabel crushed his 23rd home run of 2019 — the most in the Cincinnati Reds organization — and another hit, and Mitch Nay had a pair of doubles and hit his 12th homer in the loss.

A four-run eighth inning off Lookouts reliever Juan Martinez turned around what was a 4-3 Chattanooga lead. A bases-loaded wild pitch tied the game before Mark Kasavioto's sacrifice fly put the visitors ahead. Pinch-hitter Dominic Miroglio followed with a two-run homer.

Nay homered in the bottom of the eighth.

The Lookouts (8-12 in the second half) trailed 2-0 entering the fifth before Brantley Bell's sixth homer cut the lead in half. They scored three more times in the sixth on Nay's RBI double and Ibandel's first-pitch two-run homer to right for a 4-2 lead.

The Generals (11-9) got within a run in the seventh but had a runner thrown out at home and ended the inning with Pavin Smith hitting a screaming line drive that was snatched by Chattanooga reliever Wyatt Strahan.

Scott Moss had another strong start for the Lookouts, pitching six innings and allowing a run on three hits with five strikeouts. He has not allowed more than three runs in any game this season.

Jackson reliever Bryan Valdez earned the win with a scoreless inning, with Miguel Aguilar working around an Alfredo Rodriguez two-out double to earn his first save.
