The Jackson Generals dropped game 2 of the Southern League Championship Series to Mobile by a score of 7-2 last night. Former Mariner Matt Mangini did most of the damage with a 3-run home run for the Mobile BayBears.
James Gillheeney got the start and allowed 6 runs in 5 innings with 9 hits, though he struck out 4 and walked none. Forrest Snow came in relief and pitched two perfect innings with two strikeouts and Jonathan Arias pitched a perfect eighth inning with three strikeouts.
The offense was mostly provided by Stefen Romero, who went 2-for-4 with a double and two RBI. Catcher Mike Zunino was 0-for-3.
Taijuan Walker will try to turn the series back into the Generals favor tonight as the games head to Mobile. He allowed just 1 run over 7.1 innings in his last start, perhaps his best start in awhile although he did walk four.
