The Lookouts scored half their runs in the first inning Thursday night but failed to keep up the pace with the Generals in a 7-4 loss. Jackson's offense produced 11 hits including six extra-base hits, including a season-high four triples. 

Chattanooga took an early lead in the bottom of the first as J.T. Wise drove in Joc Pederson and Rafael Ynoa with a two out RBI double. Wise would drive in the runs and Ozzie Martinez added another along with Matt Wallach later in the game

However, in the second Jackson cut the two-run lead in half. Ji-Man Choi belted a triple then, Jack Marder singled to left which plated Choi. Halfway through two innings the Lookouts led 2-1.

In the third, Chattanooga's Brian Cavazos-Galvez scored courtesy of Martinez's ground-rule double that cushioned their lead and made it 3-1.

Once again the Generals responded in the fourth as first basemen Dan Paolini, led-off with a walk and scored Jackson's second run after a triple by Marder. The hit parade continued to give the Generals their first lead of the night, 4-3.

Jackson's offense stayed hot in the fifth as John Hicks opened the inning with a home run. Paolini hit the Generals third triple of the game. He scored after a sacrifice fly from Marder. After tacking on two more runs, Jackson led 6-3 going into the bottom of the fifth.

Insurance came in the eighth for Jackson, as Chris Taylor led off with a triple and then scored via a wild pitch to strengthen the Generals lead. Halfway through eight, the Generals led 7-4 -- which was the final score.

Chris Reed picked up the loss for Chattanooga.

Friday night the Lookouts go with Zach Lee and the Generals will use Anthony Vasquez..  A fireworks show follows the game.
