JACKSON, TENN.  - The Jackson Generals found themselves on the short end of a 7-4, 18-inning loss in game three of a five-game homestand with the Chattanooga Lookouts . The game lasted 5 hours and 18 minutes, the longest game since August 12, 2006, a 20 inning 5 hour, 22 minute game. Generals pitching recorded 22 strikeouts in the game. Chattanooga pitchers struck out 10 Generals. The victory is the third straight for the Lookouts.

Chattanooga starting pitcher Chris Reed went 6.0 innings giving up two earned runs on six hits. He walked three and fanned two batters. Reed saw his ERA rise to a meager 1.52.  The Lookouts bullpen was stellar. Five relievers held the Generals scoreless over the next 12 innings. Juan Noriega (1-1) pitched the final three inning and got the win.

The Generals held a 4-1 lead entering the seventh inning, prior to a Chattanooga rally. But the Lookouts bounced back, scoring three runs in the seventh. After Jeremy Hazelbaker tripled, he scored on catcher J. C. Boscan's base hit. Boscan came home when Noel Cuevas doubled. Two wild pitches later, Cuevas scored the tying run.

Both teams were held scoreless for the next ten 10 innings before Daniel Mayora hit an RBI triple that scored Darnell Sweeney. Scott Schebler added a two-run home run to cap off the Chattanooga 18th and victory.
