JACKSON, Tenn. - Jackson powered their way by the Chattanooga Lookouts, 7-3 Monday night thanks to four home runs and three of them coming from Steven Prosica.

Lookouts' starter Zach Lee went seven innings himself. He surrendered only six hits, but unfortunately for the right-hander three of those hits were from Proscia. Lee looked like he would escape the seventh after striking out the first two hitters, but Jackson's slugger dug in. Proscia nailed another Lee pitch deep to left and in his third straight at-bat, smacked another home run to take the 4-3 lead. 

Jackson out-hit Chattanooga for the fourth straight night, 8-to-7. Monday's win was the second straight for Jackson and forces the rubber match of the five-game series tomorrow.

The results of  their three previous games:

Aug. 23  Lookouts 3 Generals 2

Aug. 24  Lookouts 7 Generals 4

Aug. 25  Generals 4 Lookouts 3

The final games of the 2013 seasons for the Lookouts will take place at AT&T Field beginning Thursday, Aug. 29th.
