Lookouts Rock the Blue Wahoos 16-3


(lookouts.com) The Chattanooga Lookouts scored a season-high 16 runs in a runaway victory over the Pensacola Blue Wahoos. The offensive deluge began right away when the Lookouts scored on a single and a two-run Yoel Yanqui home run.

The score remained 3-1 until the seventh inning, due to a fantastic pitching performance by the Lookouts bullpen. Starting pitcher Connor Curlis went four innings and only allowed one run and was relieved by Alexis Diaz who twirled two shutout innings.

In the bottom of the seventh innings, the Lookouts bats once more roared to life. The team used five straight singles and some wild pitches to push across five runs. An inning later the team slugged four doubles to bring about a season-high eight runs in one inning.

Jose Barrero led the way for Chattanooga with four hits and four RBIs. Yanqui hit his fifth homer and drove in three runs.

Rick Nyman grew up in Anniston, Alabama and attended the University of Alabama. His television career started at WJSU-TV in Anniston where he had the opportunity to cover SEC football with Alabama and Auburn. Anniston is just 20 minutes from the Talladega Speedway, so NASCAR was a big part of his sports coverage. Due to this he was able to interview Davey Allison, Dale Earnhardt, Jeff Gordon, and several other top-name NASCAR drivers. Rick's next television job was in Savannah, Georgia, where he covered basketball player Kwame Brown (now with the Washington Wizards), who later became the first ever high school player selected as the top pick in the NBA draft. He covered the PGA Tour's annual swing thru Hilton Head and also had the opportunity of covering the Atlanta Falcons Super Bowl appearance in 1999 in Miami. Rick especially enjoys all the atmosphere, tradition and drama of college football. He also likes profiling sports personalities and learning what drives them both on and off the field. If he's not covering sports, he's either watching Seinfield or David Letterman, playing golf, reading, or working out. What he enjoys about Chattanooga is the passion people have for sports. The mountainous region of Chattanooga reminds him of his hometown of Anniston, which also has big, beautiful trees and plenty of hills. You can contact Rick at rnyman@wdef.com.
