Stars win on 4th of July 5-1

To open up a six-game home stand at Joe Davis Stadium, the Huntsville Stars snapped a four-game losing streak with a 5-1 victory against the Chatannooga Lookouts on Wednesday night.

Stars starting pitcher Hiram Burgos improved to 4-1 on the season after holding the Lookouts to just one run and six hits in six innings while striking out seven.

On offense, the two runs the Stars got in the second inning proved to be the different, as Huntsville took a lead they wouldn't relinquish on a RBI double by right fielder Kentrail Davis and a RBI single by catcher Anderson De La Rosa.

The Stars will play game two of a three-game series against the Lookouts on Thursday at Joe Davis Stadium. First pitch is at 6:43 PM.
