JACKSON, TENN. --- After playing a game last night and into the wee hours of the morning, Jackson led Tuesday's game by five after two innings but had to hold on for a 6-4 win over the Lookouts. Stephen Landazuri fanned nine Lookouts and Jabari Blash added his fourth homer of the year in the Generals' win. Chattanooga leads the current series 3-1. Jackson's win snapped the Lookouts three-game winning streak.

Landazuri (3-1) earned his third victory of the season, which is tied for first among Southern League pitchers. After allowing three runs in the fifth, Landazuri received solid relief from Jackson's bullpen. Landazuri has a Southern League leading 30 strikeouts.

Andres Santiago (0-1) took the loss. He went five innings, gave up seven hits and six runs (all earned). The Lookouts' bullpen held the Generals scoreless the rest of the way.

The Lookouts got on the board in the fifth inning with three runs. After Daniel Mayora singled, Chris O'Brien homered. Ozzie Martinez was hit by a pitch, then sacrificed to second. He went to third on a wild pitch and came home on Ryan Adams single to left.

Jackson added a run in the bottom of the fifth to make it 6-3.

Chattanooga's final run came in the sixth on Jeremy Hazelbaker's solo home run.
