The Tennessee Smokies will aim for a split of their series with the Jackson Generals as the clubs play the fourth game of the series at Smokies Park on Tuesday night.
Last night Jackson won 10-8, despite Tennessee rallying from being down 6-0 to eventually tie the game at eight in the bottom of the sixth.
Tonight Tennessee will send right-hander Nick Struck to the mound for his 20th start of the season. This year Struck is 10-8 with a 3.34 ERA. Starting for the Generals is right-hander Brandon Maurer, who is 6-2 with a 3.78 ERA.
Residents and employees of Jefferson and Hamblen County can enjoy the game at a discount at Tuesday’s 7:15 game by presenting an ID or pay stub at the box office and receiving $2 discount on field level and bleacher tickets.
