CHATTANOOGA (WRCB) -- Hector Guevera drew a bases-loaded walk from Luis Vaszquez in the top of the tenth to lead Montgomery to a 5-4 extra-innings win over Chattanooga in the opener of a five-game series Monday night at AT&T Field.
The loss drops the Lookouts (3-3) back to .500 for the second half of the Southern League season. Sunday's win over Tennessee had pushed the team above the mark for the first time this season.
J.T. Wise hit a solo home run in the second and added a two-run single in the third to help Chattanooga build a 3-2 lead, but then went hitless over his final three at-bats. He lined out to lead off a 1-2-3 bottom of the tenth that secured Montgomery's win.
Zach Lee started for the Lookouts and gave up two runs on four hits and a walk in the first, but followed with five straight shutout frames. He retired nine straight after his rough start, and gave up just two hits and a walk while striking out four over his final five innings.
Robby Price singled off reliever Jharel Cotton to pull the Biscuits even at 3-all in the seventh. Angelo Songco gave the Lookouts a brief 4-3 lead with an RBI single in the eighth, but Kevin Kiermaier's run-scoring triple of Hector Nelo forced extra innings.
Songco, who had one of the game's four triples, joined Brian Cavazos-Galvez with three hits to account for half of Chattanooga's 12-hit attack.
Joc Pederson went 0-for-5 to drop his one-time Southern League-leading average to .294.
The two teams will play game two of the series at 7:15 p.m. ET Tuesday night.
