Jacobs hit a two-run home run to left, his first homer this season, in the third inning as the Lookouts (15-21) built a 4-0 lead, but the Blue Wahoos pulled within 5-4 entering the ninth.
Chattanooga then put the game away behind J.T. Retherford's double to left that scored Cavazos-Galvez, Blake Smith and Jacobs.
