The Lookouts (2-3) and  Jackson Generals (3-2) closed out their only season series at AT&T Field Monday night  on College Fair Night at the park .  Right-hander Garrett Gould (L, 0-1)  took  the mound hoping to give the Lookouts a winning record for the first time in 2014, but was unable to do so because of  a solid  pitching  performance by the Generals ' staff.

Gould had his low-90s fastball working very early in the game as 17 of the first 20 pitches he threw ranged between 92  and 93 miles per hour.
Gould used that fastball to perfection,  coaxing  nine of the first ten batters to fly out. 

Once the lineup card flipped over, he tossed in more off-speed pitches, but the Generals’ hitters were well prepared. After giving up a run on back-to-back doubles in the fifth inning, Gould struck out Kevin Rivers to strand the bases loaded and limit the damage. 

The Lookouts got into trouble again in the sixth, but they were unable to  escape unschathed  that time. The Generals brought three runs around to score, but only one of them was earned, since an error in deep centerfield changed the outcome of that inning. 

The pitchers for the Jackson Generals had stellar performances, led by their starter, Jordan Pries (W, 1-0)  who finished the night only allowing one hit in six inning of work.

RHP Carlos Frias  (0-0, 7.20)  is scheduled to make his second start of the season against RHP Dae-Eun Rhee  (0-0, 4.50) of the Smokies in the first game of the series.

There are over 9,000 students who attend Quinnipiac University in Hamden, Conn., which – in an effort to be relative -- is just a touch smaller than our UT-Chattanooga. What makes Quinnipiac unique is that it is home of The Quinnipiac University Polling Institute, which produces what’s called the “Q Poll” because hardly anybody knows how to pronounce “Kwin-uh-pe-ack.” The Q ...
