The Tennessee Smokies come home to Smokies Park with one of the best records in the Southern League, having taken four of five from division rival Chattanooga at AT&T Park in the season’s first series.

Elliot Soto’s ninth inning RBI triple proved the difference on Monday night, as the Smokies took the finale 3-2. Tennessee enters the Jackson series with a 4-1 record, the same record as the Generals through the first five games.
