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.
