The Smokies and Cubs both fell on the wrong end of pitchers’ duels on Wednesday, with both clubs falling to identical 2-1 scores to Jackson and Milwaukee respectively.

The Cubs have already lost their series against Milwaukee, and the Generals are on the verge of winning the series against Tennessee, having won the first two games.

The Smokies will try to bounce back in this series in tonight’s third game with right-hander Dallas Beeler on the mound. Starting for the Generals is right-hander Brandon Maurer, and first pitch is scheduled for 7:15 p.m.

It’s time for today’s What We’re Reading, but keep checking the blog and our Facebook and Twitter pages for more info throughout the day on this tonight’s game at Smokies Park.
