The Jackson Generals waged an uphill battle against the Lookouts on Tuesday and fought all the way to the top, earning a 7-5 victory at AT&T Field or the fifth straight time aided by a late surge against the Chattanooga bullpen.

Chattanooga went 2-for-6 with runners in scoring position and left 6 runners on base.

 Lookouts starting pitcher Scott Moss delivered another quality start for the home team.

The southpaw only allowed one earned run in six innings to lower his season ERA to 3.23. Moss also struck out five batters and is now fourth in the league with 104 strikeouts.  

 

In the fifth inning, down 2-0, Brantley Bell launched his sixth homer of the year to cut Jackon's lead to one. 

One inning later Mitch Nay tied the game on a double and Ibandel Isabel catapulted his season's 26th homer to right field to make it 4-2 Chattanooga after six innings. 

The lead didn't last long as the Generals scored one in the seventh and four more in the eighth.

Trailing 4-2 entering the seventh inning, Jackson got a run back in the top of the seventh after third baseman Mark Karaviotis' RBI double.

In the eighth, Lookouts closer Juan Martinez allowed a pair of singles to Ramon Hernandez and Jazz Chisholm to start the rally, followed by a walk to Jeffrey Baez that loaded the bases. With Karaviotis at the plate, Martinez uncorked a wild pitch that allowed Hernandez to score the game-tying run  from third base, evening things at 4-4.

On the next pitch, Karaviotis socked a sacrifice fly to center field that allowed Chisholm to score, pushing the Generals into the lead at 5-4. Generals manager Blake Lalli tapped Dominic Miroglio to pinch-hit in the pitcher's slot, and Miroglio did his job, mashing a two-run homer to left field to give the Generals a 7-4. lead

Mitch Nay hit a solo homer in the bottom of the eighth to bring the team within two, but the team fell short. Nay currently leads the league in slugging (.573) and OPS (.937).

He would be playing his harmonica. He once was cited in front of me for panhandling and blocking traffic on the street or sidewalk down where the Lookouts play. Fortunately for him, he came in front ... (click for more)
