9/10 Smokies take 2-0 lead in Division Series

Tennessee defeated Chattanooga, 10-4, on Friday in Game 2 of the Southern League North Division Series. The Smokies scored six times in the bottom of the second, and now are one win from the Southern League Championship Series. Tennessee overcome a 4-0 deficit as Rebel Ridling homered to lead off the second. Steve Clevenger and Junior Lake hit back to back singles, and Nate Samson was safe on an error to load the bases. Nelson Perez drew a walk to force in a run and Lake scored when a balk was called on Lookouts starter Chris Withrow. Jim Adduci walked to load the bases again, and two batters later, Blake Lalli ripped a two-out double down the right field line to drive in three and open a 6-4 lead. Josh Vitters added a RBI single in the fifth and Clevenger hit a two-run single in the seventh. Oswaldo Martinez (1-0) picked up the win in relief, striking out five over three innings.

The two teams travel to Chattanooga and will resume the best of five series on Saturday. Trey McNutt will start for Tennessee against Chattanooga’s Allen Webster.
