Lookouts starting pitcher Ethan Martin pitched a game of a game and received an abundance of run support in an 11-1 win over the Montgomery Biscuits in Thursday night action at AT&T Field.
Chattanooga scored its first run of the game in the first frame. Travis Denker hit a one-out single and quickly made his way home on a subsequent J.T. Wise double.
The Lookouts augmented their lead in the fourth inning with four runs. Wise began the rally with a single and scampered to third on a Kyle Russell double. Blake Smith then walked to load the bases. Luis Nunez produced the first run of the inning by hitting a sacrifice fly. Matt Wallach then walked to, once again, load the bases. Rafael Ynoa then drew a walk to plate Russell. Nick Buss provided the big hit of the inning by plating two on a Nick Buss double.
The runs kept coming in the fifth inning. The Lookouts plated an additional four runs. Luis Nunez highlighted the big rally with a 2-run homer.
Pedro Baez hit a two-RBI double in the sixth to extend the Lookouts’ lead to 11-0.
While it was a particularly difficult day for the Biscuits pitchers, it was an even more insufferable evening for the Montgomery bats. Martin took a no-hitter into the seventh. After striking out the first batter in the seventh, Martin surrendered a double to Kyeong Kang to break up the no-hitter. Omar Luna eventually singled to end the shutout.
Geison Aguasviva and Luis Vasquez pitched the final two frames to preserve the 11-1 victory and the two-hitter.
The Lookouts will hit the road today to play a five-game series against the Mobile BayBears. The team returns home Thursday to play a 10-game homestand over 11 days in five-game installments against the Huntsville Stars and Jacksonville Suns.
