Buschmann Fans 12 in Dramatic Win
Hak-Ju Lee's 8th inning RBI-double gives Biscuits 1-0 win over Suns
MONTGOMERY, Ala.- Matt Buschmann (2-1) struck out 12 and took a no-hitter into the 6th to lead the Biscuits (17-19) by the Jacksonville Suns (17-19) 1-0 in a dramatic series-opener Friday night at Riverwalk Stadium.
Buschmann threw 5.1 innings of no-hit baseball before surrendering the first base-hit of the night with a broken bat single from Taylor Krick. The right-hander left with two outs in the sixth having retired eight of his final nine batters on strikeouts. Buschmann has won consecutive decisions for his two victories on the season.
The Biscuits broke the scoreless tie with back-to-back one-out doubles from Mark Thomas and Hak-Ju Lee (above) in th eighth against Garrett Parcell (0-1)
Adam Liberatore (4) entered the game in the 9th inning and quickly ran into trouble. Paul Gran led off the frame with a single, then an error off a groundball from Jake Smolinski put runners on second and third with no outs. Liberatore would enduce back-to-back groundouts followed by a line drive that was caught by Brad Coon in left to seal the win for the Biscuits.
The Biscuits and Suns will play Saturday night with RHP Jake Thompson getting the start for Montgomery. RHP Bryan Evans will start for Jacksonville. First pitch is slated for 7:15 pm.
