Generals Hit Past Shuckers Sunday

Offense scores six runs on 11 hits to take finale in Jackson

By Brandon Liebhaber | August 20, 2017 10:54 PM ET

Jackson, Tenn. - The Generals finished off their penultimate home series strong, downing the Biloxi Shuckers 6-2 Sunday night. Victor Reyes and Emilio Bonifacio led the way on offense with two hits apiece, as Jackson scored six runs in a game for the first time since August 7.

Jackson (25-30, 62-63) managed to do some damage against a former General to get the win. Forrest Snow, who spent parts of four seasons in Jackson while with Seattle, took the loss Sunday night. Down 1-0 the third inning, Bonifacio and Reyes both reached and would score thanks largely to a Biloxi error.

Villains From Biloxi Ruin Generals' Night

Strong crowd sees Jackson fall 7-2 on Saturday

By Tyler Springs | August 19, 2017 11:42 PM ET

Jackson, Tenn. - Spiderman heals well, but he tends to heal slowly, and the Jackson Generals unfortunately took on that same flaw on Saturday night. Clad in Spiderman-themed jerseys, the Generals fell behind by seven runs early and could not recuperate quickly enough, dropping a 7-2 decision to Biloxi in front of a crowd of 4,886.

Travis Denker and Oscar Hernandez each homered for Jackson (24-30, 61-63), but their solo contributions did not stand up against a bushel of early runs from Biloxi (27-25, 63-58). Jake Gatewood's three-run homer in the second inning capped the scoring for the Shuckers, who took the series with the victory.

By Brandon Liebhaber | August 18, 2017 11:18 PM ET

Jackson, Tenn. - Frank Duncan nearly threw the second no-hitter in franchise history Friday, but he settled for Jackson's longest start of the year in a 2-1 win over Biloxi at The Ballpark at Jackson. The right-hander took a no-hit bid into the ninth inning before Angel Ortega broke it up with an infield single.

Duncan (1-1, 2.51) was superb in his second start for the Generals after spending much of 2017 with Triple-A Reno. He faced the minimum through eight innings, walking two but inducing a pair of double plays. After walking Dustin DeMuth in the fifth, he retired 11 in a row. Duncan capped off the stretch by striking out the side in the eighth.
