The Tennessee Smokies have now seen their losing streak reach five straight games, and will look to put an end to that skid tonight in Chattanooga against the Lookouts.
Tennessee fell yesterday 4-1 in a rain-shortened contest that featured a pair of homers for Chattanooga catcher Matt Wallach.
A win tonight gives the Lookouts a series victory in the four-game set, while the Smokies are looking for a win that would be manager Buddy Bailey’s 300th Southern League win.
Starting tonight for the Smokies is right-hander Dallas Beeler. This season for Tennessee, Beller is 4-6 with a 3.84 ERA. Starting for the Lookouts is right-hander Zach Lee, who is 0-2 with a 8.82 ERA with Chattanooga in 2012.
Fans can listen to the game on the Smokies Radio Network, with the “Voice of the Smokies” Mick Gillispie entering his sixth season as Tennessee’s Director of Broadcasting. The 2010 Southern League Broadcaster of the Year is assisted by Cody Chrusciel, Roger Hoover, Jonathan Guess, and Adam King.
