Biscuits Muster 2 Hits, Shut Out Again
Division lead down to 1 game as Biscuits fall 1-0 to Suns
JACKSONVILLE, Fla.- After three hours and twenty minutes worth of rain delays, the Biscuits (60-50/24-18) were shutout for the second-consecutive night in a 1-0 loss to the Jacksonville Suns (55-57/22-20) Saturday night at Riverwalk.
After a one hour and forty minute rain delay before first pitch, the Biscuits and Suns only made it to the middle of the second inning before the skies opened up and halted the game for another hour and forty minutes.
Once back to action, Marquis Fleming (3-3) came in to relieve Kyle Lobstein who started the game but could not continue after the lengthy delay. With one out in a scoreless second inning, Kyle Skipworth drilled a solo home run to right-centerfield to give the Suns a 1-0 lead. The Suns would finish with only three hits.
Montgomery's offense could only muster two hits the entire game, both from Mark Thomas, and had only one runner reach past second-base. The Suns retired the last 13 batters they faced.After Fleming left, Chris Rearick and Neil Schenk (above) combined to toss five shutout relief frames, each fanning four.
Hak-Ju Lee went 0-for-4 snapping his franchise-record 46-game on-base streak. It was the first time since June eleventh that Lee finished a game without reaching base.
Game three in the series will be Sunday 5:05 pm. RHP Jake Thompson will start for the Biscuits while the Suns will send RHP Bryan Evans to the hill.
