With their 4-2 loss to Jackson Sunday, Chattanooga missed the opportunity of moving into a tie with Tennessee for first place. The Smokies dropped their third straight game to Jacksonville Sunday, losing 9-7.

Current Standings

After two more games at Jackson, followed by an off-day, Chattanooga and Tennessee go head-to-head for five games at AT&T Field in Chattanooga. The winner plays the Huntsville Stars, first-half first-place winners, for the division championship and the right to go on to the League Championship.

Chattanooga picked up single runs in the second and seventh innings. The run in the seventh came on Bobby Coyle Jr."s solo home run. The Generals added an insurance run in their eighth.

Each team collected eight hits and committed one error. The Lookouts could plate only one runner of six who were in scoring position.
