LAST GAME: Jackson, Tenn. - The Jackson Generals, the Double-A affiliate of Major League Baseball's Arizona Diamondbacks, put up another great fight against the Montgomery Biscuits on Saturday, but they couldn't complete the deed, falling 8-7 in the series finale at The Ballpark at Jackson. The Generals (69-53) dropped their fourth game in five nights to division-leading Montgomery (80-45), though they put on quite a show for a season-high 5,166 in attendance.

Full Recap:

TODAY'S PITCHERS: After losing their fourth game in five days, the Generals will have to make an adjustment as they open their series with the Smokies. Coincidentally, they have been forced to alter their starting rotation, as Bo Takahashi was scratched from his scheduled Sunday start to be called up to the Diamondbacks' active roster for the first time. This will be Jackson's first look at Tennessee lefthander Jack Patterson, who has allowed four earned runs over his first two starts at Double-A. Patterson was the 32nd round pick of the Cubs in the 2018 Draft out of Bryant University in Rhode Island.

ALL-STAR 2020: On July 29, the Jackson Generals announced that they would play host to the 2020 Southern League All-Star Game at The Ballpark at Jackson, their first All-Star Game since 2011. Manager Blake Lalli was a participant in that 2011 game, which the North Division won 6-3. (CLICK: 2020 SL ASG release)
