Lookouts go long on Generals, win 7-4

Posted: Updated:
CHATTANOOGA, TN (lookouts.com)----The Chattanooga Lookouts (16-12) scored six of their seven runs off of home runs en-route to a 7-4 win over the Jackson Generals (11-15). The victory was the team's third in a row and seventh out of their last eight games. 

For the seventh time this season the Lookouts struck first at home.  This time the first runs of the game came off the bat of Travis Harrison who unloaded a three-run shot in the first inning.  Chattanooga is now 7-0 at home when they score the first run.

Jackson scored their only run off of starter Greg Peavey (W, 2-1) in the second inning.  Peavey finished the day only allowing that one run on five hits in five innings.  Insurance runs were tacked on by the Lookouts in the fifth and sixth. 

With two outs and nobody on Miguel Sano blasted his sixth home run of the year to give the team four runs on the night.  Their lead continued to build an inning later in the sixth.  Two walks by Kepler and Wickens set the stage for a Byron Buxton sacrifice fly. With that sac fly Buxton has now driven in a run in eight straight games.  The Lookouts' final runs of the night came on another home run, this time a two-run shot by Jorge Polanco. 

In the seventh inning Jackson pulled within three-runs when Tyler Smith belted a three-run shot. The Generals rally stopped there however as Madison Boer and DJ Johnson (S,1) combined for two shutout innings.
