BIRMINGHAM, Ala.  -- LaMonte Wade drove in Nick Gordon with a sacrifice fly in the third inning, leading the Chattanooga Lookouts to a 7-2 win over the Birmingham Barons on Friday.

Nick Gordon returned to the lineup after sitting out two games. He went 2-for-5 with an RBI.

Chattanooga right-hander Zack Littell picked up a quality start and the win after allowing one run on five hits over six innings.

Littell made his third start for the Lookouts since coming over from the Yankees organization. He improved to 2-0 thanks to six quality innings. He gave up just one run on five hits. He walked three and struck out three. At 86 pitches, he was removed.

Birmingham starter Jordan Stephens (2-5) took the loss in the Southern League game after a rough outing in which he allowed five runs and three hits over 3 2/3 innings.

The sacrifice fly by Wade, part of a two-run inning, gave the Lookouts a 1-0 lead before Jonathan Rodriguez hit a sacrifice fly later in the inning.

Wade returned after being out since July 31st. He went 1-for-3 with two walks and was hit by a pitch. 

The Lookouts later added three runs in the fourth and two in the eighth. In the fourth, Rodriguez drew a bases-loaded walk, scoring Ryan Walker, while Andy Wilkins hit a two-run single in the eighth.

Rodriguez walked twice and drove in two runs for the winning Lookouts.

Yohan Pino made his first appearance since a long DL stint. He gave up a solo homer in the seventh inning.

Ryan Eades pitched two very efficient innings to close out the win.

Remembering Barry Parker

The news came like a thunderclap, jolting and unexpected…followed by that painful silence awaiting a clash of lightning and the dreadfully long hours of solemn rain. “Did you hear that Barry passed away,” read the message from our mutual friend John Wilson. Not “Barry Parker,” but just “Barry.” John could have sent that message to hundreds of people and they would have instantly ... (click for more)
