Generals, Tennessee Halt Play Due to Weather
Kodak, Tenn. - The Jackson Generals, the Double-A affiliate of Major League Baseball's Arizona Diamondbacks, were forced to suspend their game with the Tennessee Smokies at Smokies Stadium on Friday night due to inclement weather. Jackson and Tennessee will resume the game as part of a double-header to be played when the two teams meet in Kodak during a series that runs May 1 through May 5. Specific details on the date and time of the double-header have not yet been announced.
The Generals (7-6) trailed 2-1 in the bottom of the third with one man on and one out for Tennessee (7-6) when play was halted.
