The Tennessee Smokies wrapped up a five-game homestand with a 7-5 loss to the Chattanooga Lookouts on Tuesday afternoon.

Tennessee still won three out of five against the Lookouts to take the series, the second set the Smokies have taken from Chattanooga in the young season.

The Smokies will bus west down I-40 today to take on the Jackson Generals at Pringles Park for a five-game series beginning tonight in Jackson.
