A wild Saturday in the minors. The Chattanooga Lookouts were just no-hit, but won 7-5.
Must be a full moon tonight because the most wild outcome of baseball just happened in Double-A. The Chattanooga Lookouts, the Reds affiliate, defeated the Angels' Rocket City Trash Pandas. Nothing crazy, right? Well... the Lookouts never got a hit. Seven innings, no hits. Somehow, they scored all seven runs in the final inning.
Walks, errors, hit by pitches, a total shitshow to closeout the game. You really hate to see it for the Trash Pandas. They are known for their fire logo, but I hate to say it, they might have to be relegated to single-a after this loss. Your pitchers toss near perfection, and then they implode on the final inning. The dropped routine ball in center field was absolutely crushing. Having one more out to collect to seal the deal and you follow it up with seven earned runs in mind boggling.
