Jackson jacks Lee, Lookouts

Chattanooga starting pitcher Zach Lee endured his first rough outing this season as the Lookouts were whipped by the Jackson Generals 6-2 Thursday night at AT&T Field.

Lee, the No. 5 prospect in the Los Angeles Dodgers organization according to Baseball America, was 2-0 with a 1.17 earned run average through his first four starts. He allowed six runs on six hits and lasted just three innings against the Generals.

Jackson went down in order in the first inning but opened the second with a double to left field by Steven Proscia, a triple to left by James Jones and a double to center by John Hicks. The Generals tallied three runs in the second and three more in the third, when the Lookouts opened the door with a pair of errors, including a throwing miscue by Lee.

Generals starting pitcher Tajuan Walker limited the Lookouts (9-12) to two hits in seven innings. Chattanooga finished with four hits overall, with two by J.T. Wise.

A crowd of 2,665 attended the series opener. Game two is scheduled for tonight at 7:15.
