Lookouts waste opportunities in 2-1 loss to Jackson
CHATTANOOGA (Lookouts) -- Despite having over three times as many hits as the Generals, the Lookouts were not able to manufacture enough runs in a 2-1 loss to Jackson in Friday night action at AT&T Field.
The Generals wasted very little time entering the scoreboard. Francisco Martinez led off the game with a walk and promptly rounded the bases on a subsequent Brad Miller double to give Jackson an early 1-0 advantage.
Johermy Chavez hit a solo shot that skimmed over the left-center field wall to augment the Generals' lead, 2-0.
Due to several bungled rally attempts, the Lookouts did not plate their first run of the game until the sixth inning. J.T. Wise led off the inning with an infield single. After a Blake Smith strikeout, Luis Nunez drew a walk to put runners on first and second. Bobby Coyle followed with an infield single to load the bases. C.J. Retherford then grounded out to second to bring home Wise from third to put the score at 2-1.
Former Lookout Logan Bawcom, who was acquired by the Mariners at the trade deadline, came into the game for the Generals in the ninth and slammed the door on the Lookouts to pick up his 17th save of the season.
Yoervis Medina (4-5), who pitched the seventh and eighth inning for Jackson, was credited with the win.
Matt Magill (10-8) was the hard-luck loser for the Lookouts. In seven solid innings, he yielded just two runs on three hits and four walks, while striking out seven.
The Chattanooga Lookouts and Jackson Generals will continue their five-game series at 7:15 P.M., tomorrow.
