News & Notes
Last Time Out: The Lookouts dropped a back-and-forth affair in the eleventh inning last night to the Pensacola Blue Wahoos 10-9. Pensacola jumped off to a 5-2 lead by getting to Lookouts starter Nick Greenwood with 5 runs on 9 hits over five innings. The deficit for Chattanooga grew larger in the seventh when reliever Corey Williams gave up two home runs for 3 total runs bringing the score to 8-2 at the seventh-inning stretch. Then the Lookouts offense roared to life and tied the game with 7 runs over the last nine outs of regulation, including a wild play to tie the game in the bottom of the ninth when Ryan Walker stole second and then scored when Pensacola C Joe Hudson sailed the ball into CF with no one covering second base. The excitement proved to be for naught though, as Trevor Hildenberger gave up a solo shot in the eleventh and the Lookouts took the loss in their first extra-innings game of the season.
Heavy Lifters: The heart of the Lookouts order more than did their jobs of being the big batters in the lineup. Travis Harrison, DJ Hicks, Mitch Garver and Leo Reginatto batting in the third through sixth hole respectively went a combined 12-for-23 last night with 3 doubles, 5 runs and 6 driven in.
Blooming Bats: Leo Reginatto and Travis Harrison have both put on quite a show so far in the month of May. In nine games, Harrison is batting .432 (16-for-37) with 3 RBI and 5 runs, while Reginatto is 15-for-37 (.405) with 4 doubles, 5 runs and 4 RBI. Reginatto is also in the middle of a four game hitting streak with multiple hits in all four contests.
Thanks For the Memories: Electric closing prospect JT Chargois was called up to AAA Rochester yesterday after picking up 7 saves (in 7 tries) with 14 strikeouts and a 1.54 ERA in 11.2 innings pitch. Chargois spent parts of the last two seasons with the Lookouts totaling a 2.44 ERA with 18 saves in as many tries, allowing just 12 earned runs and striking out 48 in 44.2 innings. He is a perfect 27/27 closing out save situations in his professional career.
