Generals Rally for Lead as Rain Suspends Game

May 18, 2018 - Southern League (SL) - Jackson Generals News Release

PENSACOLA, FLA. - Timing is everything, and the rain, that baseball villain, may have actually been punctual on Thursday. Trailing by a run entering the ninth inning, the Jackson Generals patiently mounted a two-run rally, overtaking the Pensacola Blue Wahoos with two outs in the top of the ninth before a thunderstorm caused the game to be suspended.

A partial box score for Thursday's game is attached. A full recap and details will be available when tomorrow's twin bill has been completed.
