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

The Lookouts still have an excellent chance to end the second-half in first-place, thereby earning a spot in the Southern League playoffs. 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.

 In Sunday's loss, the Generals jumped on knuckleballer Matt Shelton for three runs in the first inning. Two of the runs was the result of a two-run homer by Patrick Kivlehan. 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.

Chattanooga and Jackson will meet again Monday night. Game time is 8:05 p.m.
