Matt Wallach hit two home runs and starting pitcher Allen Webster threw six solid innings to lead the Chattanooga Lookouts to a 4-1 win over the Tennessee Smokies in a rain-shortened game at AT&T Field on Friday night.
Chattanooga scored its first run in the bottom of the first inning. Rafael Ynoa led off the inning with a double and promptly swiped third, but an errant throw by catcher Michael Brenly allowed Ynoa to cross the plate.
Wallach hit a two-run homer in the fifth off of Dae-Eun Rhee (6-5) to increase the Lookouts’ lead, 3-0.
The Smokies scored their lone run in the sixth inning. Logan Watkins began the inning with a double and advanced to third on a subsequent Jae-Hoon Ha single. Justin Bour then ripped a single to bring home Watkins.
Webster got out of the inning without further damage, retiring the next three batters.
Wallach hit a solo homer in the eighth to make the score 4-1. Shortly thereafter, the game was called because of stormy weather.
Webster (4-8) went six innings, yielding just one run, five hits and two walks while striking out 10.
The Lookouts and Smokies will continue their five-game series at 7:15 P.M. on Saturday.
