Birmingham, AL — The Birmingham Barons dropped game four of their five game series against the Jackson Generals by a score of 8-3 at GeneralsPark in Jackson, Tennessee.
Jeremy Farrell put the Barons ahead first with an RBI single in the second inning scoring Kevan Smith from second base against Jackson starter Tyler Pike (2-1, 3.20). However, the lead would be short lived as the Generals responded with four runs against Barons starter Myles Jaye (1-8, 6.63) on RBI doubles by Brock Hebert and Ketel Marte, putting them ahead 4-1 after two innings.
A Dan Black sacrifice fly in the third inning cut the lead to 4-2 but another big inning by the Generals in the fifth had the Barons staring at a 7-2 deficit. Patrick Kivlehan started the scoring with a sacrifice fly scoring Leon Landry from third base. Daniel Paolini followed with a two-run homer knocking Jayefrom the game. Jaye allowed all seven runs on nine hits over 4.2 IP while picking up his eighth loss of the season.
