Zach Lee pitched a gem of game, throwing six innings of one-run ball, to highlight a stellar four-pitcher performance in the Lookouts’ 6-1 win over the Generals in Monday night action at AT&T Field.

Lee (3-3), who has shown improvement since opening at Double-A at 0-3, picked up the win for the Lookouts, yielding just one run on three hits and a walk, while striking out six. 

Inning by inning Recap of the game. 

The victory gives the Lookouts a a bit of breathing room in the title race. With six games remaining, the magic number is four. Any combination of four Chattanooga wins or Jackson losses give the Lookouts the title.

Current Standings 

Jackson scored the first run of the game in the second inning, but the Lookouts tied up the game in the bottom of the third on a Rafael Ynoa RBI bloop single to center field..

The Lookouts plated three runs in the fourth inning to take the lead. Jake Lemmerman got the rally started by leading off with a solo shot off of Anthony Fernandez (4-3). Luis Nunez followed with a double, and J.T. Wise walked to put two runners on. Blake Smith then laid down a well-executed bunt in which pitcher Fernandez unsuccessfully went to third on the play. Fernandez continued to struggle and walked C.J. Retherford with the bases loaded to account for the second run of the inning. Nick Buss hit a sacrifice fly to deep center field to put the score at 4-1.

Chattanooga added to their lead with a run on a Nunez RBI double in the fifth and Retherford's RBI single in the seventh inning.

Rubby De La Rosa, Paco Rodriguez, and Steven Ames combined to shut out the Generals in the final three frames to preserve the 6-1 win.

The Lookouts and Generals will wrap-up their five-game series at 2:15 P.M., Tuesday. Two right handers will face each other. Taijan Walker (7-8) faces Chattanooga's Andres Santiago (0-1)
