The Chattanooga Lookouts dropped their fourth game in a row, losing to the Jackson Generals, 5-3.  

In the second inning the Generals jumped out in front on a Ramon Hernandez RBI double and a Mark Karaviotis RBI single.

They added another run in the thid on a Jeffry Baez solo shot and one in the fourth on a RBI single by starting pitcher Joel Payamps.

Along with helping his own cause, the righty fired seven shutout innings while striking out seven batters.  

Payamps got through the Chattanooga lineup damage-free in his first cycle through the order, but the second time through was not as easy.

 

With two outs and Jose Siri at second base, Ibandel Isabel singled to score the Lookouts' first run of the game, cutting the lead to 4-1.

 

In the eighth inning, the Generals allowed a pair of runs to score on a bases-loaded single, but the Lookouts stranded the bases loaded later in the inning with a Gavin LaValley pop-out.
