Geography quiz - August 2nd Series vs Lookouts

Whats between Albuquerque and Cucamonga? Chattanooga of course.

Well, if you are talking Dodgers geography. Affiliate geography, that is!

The Biscuits limp out of Pearl Miss, it must feel like Pearl Harbor after losing four out of five games to the Braves. Their next appointment is a five game homestand against the Lookouts.

The Chattanooga Lookouts are the Dodgers affiliate from the mountain city of Tn, visiting Montgomery for the first time this season.

The Lookouts have a similar record as the Biscuits, or even a little worse, so this is a head to head meeting of division cellar dwellers. When last place teams meet, all bets are off as anything can happen!

Joc Pederson
The Chatt team is peppered with prospects on both sides of the ball. Zach Lee is one of the top names in the Dodgers system and Joc Pederson takes over as the top outfield prospect in the LA chain now that Puig has locked up a job in Chavez Ravine.


 Zach Lee, the Dodgers top pitching hope, is a former LSU Tiger, continuing the summer of Louisiana players here. Other pitchers include righty Ross Stripling, late of Texas A&M. All the aforementioned pitchers are listed among the MLB prospects for the Los Angeles organization top twenty.

Other top names currently on the Lookouts roster are lefty pitchers Onelki Garcia and Chris Reed.
Reed was in the futures game and attended Stanford University.


Onelki Garcia is from Cuba and a highly touted prospect, but should not be confused with the other Garcia, Yimi.
Yimi Garcia is from the Dominican and right handed, one of the many righty pitching prospects on the Chattanooga staff.

The veteran bat on the team is provided by Sean Burroughs. Much has been written about the son of a big leaguer who was a star of the Little League World Series. He went on to the bigs and then was out of baseball for many reasons, now hes back playing the game he loves while he still can.
