The slumping Chattanooga Lookouts finally put some runs in the scoreboard Wednesday night, but found a new way to demonstrate their current hitting futility.

 

The Lookouts, losers of 11 of their last 13 games, struck out a grand total of 16 times while losing to the visiting Jackson Generals 4-3.

  The third game of the five-game series will be tonight at 7:15.

 

Chattanooga managed seven hits, including J.T. Wise's fifth homer, but four Jackson pitchers combined to strike out 16 while walking no one. Starter Roenis Elias (8-6) gave up all three run, b ut also struck out 10 in only five innings. Three Generals relievers worked a combined four innings, allowing one lonely hit while striking out six.

 

Dom Leone earned his first save but did not strike out a batter in a perfect inning.

 

Wise's solo homer briefly gave the Lookouts a 1-0 lead with his fifth homer, but Lookouts starter Duke von Schamann (2-3) gave up RBI hits to James Jones and Ramon Morla in the third. In the sixth, the same to Jackson players upped the ante by hitting back to back homers in the sixth to end von Schamann's night.

 

Jon Garcia added two hits and an RBI while Miguel Rojas was 2-for-3 while being the only Chattanooga starter not to strike out. On the other hand, Joc Pederson was 0-for-4 with three strikeouts before being ejected in the eighth inning.
