The Tennessee Smokies’ losing streak now stands at a season-long five-games after falling to the Jackson Generals 6-4 on Saturday night at Pringles Park.

A bright spot for the Smokies was right fielder Mike Burgess, who doubled and homered in the contest. Tennessee will look to avoid a sweep in a 3:05 p.m. ET contest on Sunday afternoon in Jackson.
