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.

Police Need To Stop The Road Cowboys - And Response (2)

Where is our highway patrol?  If they were known to regularly patrol our interstate highways through our city I don't think it would take long before the "truckers" were aware of it.  There are places in our country where this is the case.   When I have traveled Interstates 24 and 75 I may see the occasional car pulled over but rarely if ever is it an 18-wheeler. ...

Roy Exum: Never Disturb The Dead

I’ve got too many things in my life that scare me so I’ve always been real leery of “unnecessary fear.” A guy named Terry wanted to teach me how to catch a live rattlesnake one time but had a tough time telling me what exactly to do with the angry serpent when the time came to let it go.
