The Chattanooga Lookouts beat the Jackson Generals Monday night in 11 innings of what was to be a seven-inning game. Joc Pederson, who made a fantastic catch of a deep fly ball to center in the top of the inning, singled, was bunted to second and moved to third on a swinging strike to Yasiel Puig. Puig singled to right scoring Pederson from third, giving the Lookouts a 3-2 win.
