Biscuits Explode Past M-Braves, Take Series
Montgomery wins rubber-match 9-1 over M-Braves
PEARL, Miss.- Alex Colome (2-1) struck out a season-high ten while the Biscuits (29-26) offense scored eight runs in the fourth inning to take the rubber-match 9-1 over the Mississippi Braves (24-30) Friday night at Trustmark Park.
The Biscuits brought 13 batters to the plate to score the eight runs in the fourth inning. There were five hits, five walks and three wild pitches between Braves' starter David Hale (3-3) and reliever Brett Cammons. Ryan Gark had two hits, two RBI and scored two runs in the frame while Kyeong Kang also had two hits in the fourth.
Colome, making his second start since being activated from the diabled-list, dominated for five innings. The number-five prospect in the Rays organization had a stretch of five consecutive strikeouts while holding the Braves to one run on three hits to earn his second win of the season.
With the victory, the Biscuits have won six consecutive series and sit only three games out of first place in the Southern Division with 15 games remaining in the first half.
Montgomery will start a five-game series with the Tennessee Smokies Saturday night during Military Appreciation Night at Riverwalk Stadium. LHP Kyle Lobstein will start for the Biscuits while the Smokies will send out RHP Dae-Eun Rhee.
