BayBears Edge Lookouts, 4-2April 27, 2012 - Southern League (SL) Chattanooga Lookouts
Fans had the opportunity to comfortably nosh on some hot dogs and popcorn for the first three innings, as neither team showed any signs of offense; however, the BayBears broke the spell without recording a single hit off of Martin in the fourth frame. Two consecutive walks to Wladimir Sutil and Matt Davidson set the stage. After a Brent Clevlen fly out, which pushed Sutil to third, Marc Krauss hit a run-resulting sacrifice fly to give Mobile the early lead.
Chattanooga finally entered the scoreboard in the bottom of the sixth with two runs. Luis Nunez began the rally with a one-out single, and Kyle Russell reached on a walk to put two runners on base. Travis Denker then came through with a double to score Nunez, but a wayward relay throw by right fielder Alfredo Marte and heads up running allowed Russell to scamper home on the play.
Mobile tied up the game in the seventh on a Krass triple, which was followed by a Marte RBI single.
The BayBears struck again in the eighth with two more runs on a Clevlen single to pull ahead of the Lookouts, 4-2.
Yonata Ortega blanked the Lookouts in the final two frames to preserve the win for the BayBears, while collecting his first save of the season.
