Lookouts Drop Double Header To First-Place Jackson Generals Monday

Chattanooga Returns Home Thursday To Face Tennessee Smokies At AT&T Field

Tuesday, April 24, 2018

Jackson, TN.- The Jackson Generals are running away with the Southern League North division's first-half title with a 15-2 record. On Monday, they won the second and third games of their series against the Chattanooga Lookouts with a 7-0 shutout in Game One, and a come-from-behind 7-6 walk-off win in Game Two.

A year ago, Zack Littell went 19-1 between two levels and three teams. On Monday night, he made his fourth start of the 2018 season and is still looking for his first win and already has his second loss.

In Game One, he gave up six runs on seven hits and a walk in just 4 1/3 innings. He struck out four. Cody Stashak allowed an inherited runner to score, plus another run of his own. He recorded the final five outs.In the doubleheader-shortened seven inning game.

The Lookouts did not record a hit until LaMonte Wade singled with two outs in the sixth inning. Wade also walked in the first inning so there was no concern regarding a perfect game.

Nick Gordon added a seventh-inning double, his third of the season.

Game One Box

 

In the second game, the Lookouts fell behind, put together a big comeback, twice took the lead and ended up one run short, losing 7-6.

 

Each team collected 10 hits in the seven inning contest.

 

Ryan Eades started. He was charged with three unearned runs on four hits and a walk in four innings. He struck out seven. Each of the three runs came in the first inning and were, at least in part, due to two passed balls.

 

Anthony McIver came on and gave up two runs on three hits and a walk in his two innings struck out three.

 

Chattanooga fell behind early, but in the sixth inning, they scored four runs to take a 5-4 lead. With two outs, Zander Wiel and Chris Paul had RBI singles before TJ White knocked a two-run double.

 

The game was tied at five going into the seventh inning. LaMonte Wade came up with two outs. He singled. Brent Rooker doubled him to third, and then Nick Gordon’s single gave the Lookouts another one-run lead going into the bottom of the seventh.

 

The Lookouts brought in Williams Ramirez who struck out the first batter he faced. However, he gave up three straight hits and two runs and the Lookouts took a 7-6 loss.

 

Wade went 2-for-4 with his second home run of the year. Nick Gordon was 3-for-4.

Use Purse Building For Chattanooga Museum Of History And Industry

Because my stories are shared on the ... (click for more)
