Double-A Chattanooga wins, Jose Dominguez makes third rehab appearance.

The Chattanooga Lookouts, the Dodgers’ Double-A affiliate, extended their season with a 7-6 win against Huntsville on Monday. They will face Jacksonville in the Southern League Finals, a best-of-5 series.

Jose Dominguez made his third rehab appearance since he was sidelined with inflammation in his right shoulder July 25. He faced three batters, walked one and allowed two singles. All three runners scored, which turned a lopsided 7-2 contest into a close game.

Dominguez also allowed one run in both of his rehab appearances with Rookie-advanced Ogden.

Dodgers shortstop prospect Corey Seager drove in one of the Lookouts’ runs with an RBI single and is batting .176 in the series.
