The Tennessee Smokies look to put an end to their five-game losing streak on Thursday, facing the Huntsville Stars at Smokies Park.

Last night Tennessee fell 7-2 to the Stars, despite shortstop Junior Lake recording his 29th multi-hit game of the season, going 2-4 with a double and an RBI.

Tonight Tennessee will send right-hander Lendy Castillo to the mound. This will be Castillo’s second start as part of a major league rehab assignment from the Cubs. Starting for the Stars is right-hander Ariel Pena, who has no record and a 4.50 ERA with Huntsville this season.

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. Chrusciel and Hoover will host the Pilot Oscar-Mayer Pregame Show beginning at 7 p.m. on the Smokies Radio Network.

Tonight’s broadcast will air on the Smokies Radio Network’s flagship station The Sports Animal WNML AM 990, FM 99.1 and 99.3 plus the Smokies mobile app. Click the link below to listen live online.
