The Carolina Mudcats made a late run at the Chattanooga Lookouts, but couldn’t quite climb out of the hole.

Chattanooga had a four-run lead going into the seventh inning, and single runs by the visiting Mudcats in the seventh, eighth and ninth weren’t enough to slash the deficit in a 4-3 loss.

Corey Smith had three hits with a double and an RBI while Mike Rivera added three hits including a double for the Lookouts, who won for the first time in three tries in the current five-game series.

Denis Phipps homered for the Mudcats, while Chris Denove added two hits including a double.

Alberto Bastardo (4-3) was the winning pitcher, with Jon Huber collecting his first save. Scott Carroll (0-1) took the loss.
