SHUCKERS 6, LOOKOUTS 2

» Thursday's road recap: Biloxi hit for the cycle in a six-run fifth inning to hand Chattanooga its sixth consecutive loss and seventh in its past eight games. The Shuckers did all their damage with two outs and had seven straight reach base safely, with Cooper Hummel's three-run home run providing a cushion. Calten Daal's RBI infield single and Michael Beltre's sacrifice fly in the top of the fourth built a 2-0 lead for the Lookouts, who are 8-13 in the second half. Chattanooga starter Tony Santillan pitched three scoreless innings but was pulled in the fourth. Daal's multihit performance raised his batting average to .321.

» Next up: Game two of a six-game series in Biloxi is Friday at 7:35 p.m. EDT.

» Pitchers: Packy Naughton (4-5, 2.98) is scheduled to start for the Lookouts, with Alec Bettinger (4-5, 3.49) scheduled for the Shuckers. Bettinger is 4-2 with a 1.63 ERA over his past 10 starts.
