AA – The Lookouts gave up two runs on an error as they fell behind the Stars (Brewers) in the second inning but then two runs in the fourth to take the lead and four runs in the fifth that provided just enough runs in the 7-6 clinching win to send the Lookouts to Southern League Championship series.  Nick Struck started the game and he saw the Stars score two runs on his double error which put the Stars ahead 2-0.

Chris O'Brien brought them back within one on his solo home run and in the fourth, O'Brien singled in Daniel Mayora and that tied the score at 2.

O'Brien eventually was thrown out at the plate but then Angel Sanchez singled in Dickson to give the Lookouts their first lead of the game.

The following inning saw Bobby Coyle double and Corey Seager singled in Coyle.  The big blow followed a Chris O'Brien walk as Dickson hit a 3-run home run to make the score 7-2.

Jose Dominguez was sent to the Lookouts to get some more work in games and Monday night wasn't a memorable one as Dominguez faced three batters and gave up two hits and a walk.  All three batters would score.

Daniel Coulombe came into the game with one out in the seventh and he closed out the game and the series.
