Jackson, Tenn. - Making his first start at Double-A, Jackson Generals right-hander Jon Duplantier gave up a pair of extra-base hits to Chattanooga in the first inning.

The rest of the way, the Arizona Diamondbacks' top prospect had just about everything going his way. Aided by a seven-run second inning that turned the tables on the Chattanooga Lookouts (9-7), Duplantier (1-0, 3.60 ERA) and the Generals (13-2) cruised to a 13-2 victory at The Ballpark at Jackson on Saturday night.

Kohl Stewart entered the game at 2-0 with a 3.48 ERA and a 14/1 K/BB ratio in 10 1/3 innings, Lookouts' fans were hoping that Stewart had turned a corner. On Saturday, he turned the wrong corner. Recording only five outs, Stewart gave up six hits and a walk, resulting in seven runs (six earned). He struck out one, committed an error and took the loss.

Todd Van Steensel and Zack Jones limited the damage, splitting the next 4 ? scoreless innings, combining to strike out seven.

Omar Bencomo finished the game, pitching two innings, allowing six runs (two earned) on four hits and three walks. He struck out two.

The lineup didn’t do much to help, but neither did the defense. Besides Stewart error, there were four other fielding errors committed (Rooker, Corcino, Miller 2).

Brent Rooker doubled in a two-hit performance. Zander Wiel also doubled and is hitting .396 on the young season.

Why Are Joda Thongnopnua And Phil Bredesen Downplaying Their Democratic Values?

For the past several months, the Democratic Party has reached a tipping point. “Their Resistance” is to oppose anything and everything Republicans are doing to deliver a stronger economy and better economic opportunities for all Americans.  Yet, I find it very interesting that the public outcry we are seeing from the Democrats on a national level is nowhere to be found when ...

Roy Exum: The Coach Who Said ‘No’

I couldn’t tell you the first time I met John Gagliardi … 30 years ago? 40? … and I never saw him nearly enough. He was a Division III football coach at some monastery of a place in Minnesota and that’s a long way from the Southeastern Conference. Our orbits rarely overlapped but somewhere down the line we were at the same table for dinner. Once that happened, it seemed like the ... (click for more)
