Jackson Generals Get Shutout Twice in One Day

There are amazing accomplishments (like a no-hitter) and then there are AMAZING accomplishments, like playing a doubleheader and not scoring any runs. The Mariners had an amazing accomplishment on Friday, but the Generals had an AMAZING one on Sunday.

Jackson, the top team in the Southern League on the strength of a rotation built like stud horses at the Belmont, played two games yesterday which usually means double the fun, but this time meant double the pain against Jacksonville.

The Generals fell 7-0 in the opener with only five hits managed against pitchers Bryan Evans and Bobby Bramhall. Steve Garrison got the start for Jackson and allowed 6 R, 4 ER in 3.1 innings. Nick Franklin was 1-for-4 in the melee.

Second game means time to re-power up right? Certainly Jackson was due to score some runs. But by “some” I really mean none, since once again they managed only five hits (but this time in seven innings!) and 0 runs. Franklin was 0-for-4 and Gabriel Noriega actually managed a 2-for-2 day with a double.

Taylor Stanton got the start for the Generals and allowed 8 R, 7 ER in 4 innings.

Dear James Paxton, please come back. Dear Danny Hultzen and Taijuan Walker, make all of the starts until he does. That’s what Jackson is all about.
