JACKSON, TENN.  - The Chattanooga Lookouts gave the Jackson Generals their worst home defeat since May 11, 2010 on Sunday night as the Lookouts took a 2-0 series edge after a 12-0 victory. 

Jochi Ogando (0-1) struggled in his Double-A debut allowing six hits and six runs (five earned) in 3+ innings pitched. Ogando was 0-1 with a 3.38 ERA in two starts with High Desert this season before being promoted to Jackson.

O'Koyea Dickson provided Chattanooga with two home runs and six RBI's in Saturday's victory. Dickson capped off the Lookouts' six-run fourth inning with a three-run homer to left field.

The slugger added a two-run home run in the sixth that scored Brian Cavazos-Galvez and gave Chattanooga a 9-0 lead.

The Lookouts offense held a 12-6 advantage over the Generals in hits. Chattanooga pitchers combined to allow just one walk to Jackson's five.

Cuban Erisbel Arruebarrea, a top Dodgers' prospect, has joined the Lookouts and went  2-for- 5 in the game.

In September 2013, Arruebarrena tried to defect from Cuba, and was barred from participating in the 53rd Cuban National Series as a result. In November, he successfully defected, established residency in Haiti and began working out in the Dominican Republic for Major League scouts. On February 22, 2014, the Dodgers announced that they had signed him to a 5-year contract worth a reported $25 million, with a $7.5 million signing bonus. He was assigned to the Lookouts to start his career.

Chattanooga starter Tyson Brummett (1-1) earned his first victory of the season after tossing seven full innings. Brummett allowed five hits and recorded five strikeouts before Pedro Baez recorded the Generals' final six outs.

The Generals recorded two extra-base hits in Saturday's loss. Kevin Rivers (1-4) recorded a triple and Mike Dowd (1-3) hit a double. Ketel Marte (1x4) extended his hitting streak to five games.
