Jackson starting pitcher Jordan Pries allowed one hit in six innings to propel the Generals to a 4-0 victory Monday night over Chattanooga at AT&T Field.

With the win, the Generals clinched the opening series of the season three games to two.

O'Koyea Dickson led off the second inning with a double to left field for the Lookouts, but he was stranded at third. They did not get their second hit until Casio Grider opened the ninth with a single to right.

Chattanooga starter Garrett Gould was effective until there were two outs in the fifth inning, when he allowed consecutive doubles by Gabriel Noriega and Nathan Melendres as the Generals took a 1-0 lead. Jackson made it 2-0 in the sixth when Jabari Blash led off with an infield single and scored on a fielding error by center fielder Jeremy Hazelbaker.

The Generals added two runs in the sixth on an RBI double to right by John Hicks and a triple to right by Melendres.

Chattanooga is off today before beginning its first road series of the season Wednesday night at Kodak, Tenn., against the Tennessee Smokies.
