Jackson Throttles Lookouts Saturday, 13-1.

Sunday's Game Canceled Due To Inclement Weather

Saturday, April 27, 2013

It took only 12 crisp minutes for the Chattanooga Lookouts to resolve the suspended game mess from Friday night in their favor. But it took three long excruciating hours for the Abraham (Danny) Almonte and the Jackson Generals to pound the Lookouts into second game submission with a 13-1 beating.

The suspended game went into the Chattanooga win column 5-4 on C.J. Retherford's third RBI of the game.

Inning by inning Recap of the game.

With rain finally prevailing Friday night, the two teams were left with a 4-4 mess in the middle of the eighth. When play resumed under decidedly different conditions Saturday evening, Brian Cavasos-Galvez singled with one out and came all the way around when Retherford doubled for his third RBI in the game. Retherford was thrown out at third, but Yimi Garcia made it stand for his sixth save, striking out two. Hector Nelo, in relief of Chris Reed, improved to 2-0.

Retherford also had a solo homer in the second inning and an RBI hit in the third. For the Generals, Leon Landry had a three-run home run, his second of the season.

In the regularly scheduled game, the Generals pummeled starter Andres Santiago (2-2) and a succession of relievers for 17 total hits, batting around in both the fourth and sixth innings in support of starter Roenis Elias (1-2), who worked six innings and allowed just four hits.

But the story of the night was Almonte, who was batting just .177 coming into the day and who was batting ninth. He did not play in the suspended game. A free agent acquisition from the Yankees, his ninth-inning double gave him a rare cycle for the game, going 4-for-5 with four RBIs. The historic game raised his average to .217.

Jackson shortstop Brad Miller also homered for the Generals, while Steven Proscia had a triple among his three hits. For the Lookouts (10-13), Retherford drove in the only run in the nightcap, while Cavasos-Galvez had a triple and run scored.

Box Score

Weather allowing, game four of this five-game set will take place at 2:15 Sunday, weather permitting. Rob Rasmussen (1-2) is the scheduled starter.

Brian Cavazos-Galvez is safe at third on a triple.
