The Chattanooga Lookouts won game two, 8-1, to split tonight's doubleheader against the Montgomery Biscuits.
After completing just two innings on Sunday, these teams resumed the game on Monday. Sean Poppen had started on Sunday and threw two scoreless innings, striking out four. When play resumed Monday, lefty Dietrich Enns was on the mound.

Todd Van Steensel came on and was charged with three runs on three hits and a walk in 1 2/3 innings. William Ramirez struck out two in a scoreless inning.
The first game of the doubleheader picked up where Sunday's suspended game left off. With the Lookouts leading 2-0, the Biscuits bats started off on fire, putting up five runs in the top of the third. In the bottom of the fifth inning the Lookouts seized back the lead with a five-run inning of their own. The 7-5 lead would disappear however, in the top of the seventh when Montgomery would score five more runs to put the game away to an 11-7 win.
