Notes

-The Topes extend their win streak to 7 games behind a strong start from Will Savage, who now has an ERA of 2.41 and won his 4th decision in 6 appearances. Alex Castellanos did not start but made a pinch hitting appearance, grounding out in the 7th. Jerry Sands and Tim Federowicz each doubled, though Scott Van Slyke went hitless.

-Aaron Miller ran into trouble early though the Lookouts would eventually mount a pair of comebacks. Unfortunately, Geison Aguasviva walked the leadoff batter in the bottom of the 12th who was sacrificed to 2nd and brought on in a single to end the game. Blake Smith doubled and homered, now 11 for his last 28 after a tough start to the season. Chattanooga had 11 hit but scored just 4 runs thanks to a 2 for 11 performance with RISP and leaving 10 men on base.

-Garrett Gould struggled, allowing 6 runs in 3 innings on 6 hits, including a home run and a walk. He did strike out 7 batters, giving him 28 punchouts in 16.1 innings, though his ERA is north of 6. Likely a function of bad luck on balls in play, but the high hits allowed total should be monitored. Nick Akins had his 4th multi-hit effort in his last 5 games. Joe Becker also had a pair of hits, while Scott Wingo singled and drew his 5th walk in as many games.

-The long national crisis has ended. Scott Schebler drew his first walk of the season. He also drove in his 12th run of the year. Justin Boudreaux, James Baldwin and Kevin Taylor each had two hits. Baldwin also stole a pair of bases and is now 8 for his last 19. On the down side, the pitching staff allowed 8 runs and Matt Laney took his first loss of the season.
