LAST GAME: The Jackson Generals, the Double-A affiliate of Major League Baseball's Arizona Diamondbacks, finally felt the pendulum back swing the other way, losing 10-4 on Sunday to the Birmingham Barons. The loss by the Generals (8-7) ends a four-game winning streak, as the Barons (9-8) evened the series with a 13-hit barrage at Regions Field. Recap:

TODAY'S PITCHING MATCHUP: Right-hander Emilio Vargas hasn't claimed a win yet in 2019, but he was lights-out in his only previous outing at Birmingham last August (8.0 IP, 0 R, 10 K). He'll square up to Birmingham's Bernardo Flores, who's allowed just one run over his last four starts, dating back to last September.

HIT OR MISS: After scoring 37 runs during a four-game stretch last week (4/16-4/20), the Generals were held to just four runs yesterday. The offensive trends over the last two games have been concerning: Birmingham has stranded a total of 21 Jackson runners over the past two games, holding the Generals without a hit in 18 situations with men in scoring position.

MORNING BASEBALL: Today's 11:05am CT start will be the earliest first pitch the Generals have had this year. Jackson will have three morning games in their next eight contests, with one coming on Wednesday for the finale at Birmingham and another for the series finale against Pensacola next Monday at The Ballpark at Jackson.
