Andres Santiago takes the mound for the Lookouts as they host the Jacksonville Suns (Marlins) in Game 1 of their best-of-five Southern League Championship series.

The Lookouts are the surprise team in this series, finishing well under .500 for the entire season and just two games above .500 in the second half.   The Suns had the second best record in the league and won a hard fought division title.

Corey Seager hit .345/.381/.534 in 38 games and Darnell Sweeney and Scott Schebler were other Lookouts whose performances led the team to this championship series.

The series will start in Chattanooga for Games 1 and 2 on Wednesday and Thursday, followed by Game 3 and if necessary Games 4 and 5 in Jacksonville beginning on Friday.

Coming up – Southern League Best-of-Five Championship Series starts on Wednesday night.   Chattanooga sends out Andres Santiago to face the Suns.
