The Montgomery Biscuits dropped the second game of the series at Jacksonville, losing to the Suns (Dodgers), 3-2.
The Biscuits fell behind early when former Columbus Catfish OF Xavier Paul hit a solo home run in the bottom of the 1st, putting Jacksonville up 1-0.
The Biscuits tied the game in the 5th. CF Fernando Perez drove in 3B Gabriel Martinez, who had led off the inning with a single.
A 2-run homer off Biscuits starter Derek Feldkamp in the 6th gave Jacksonville a 3-1 lead.
The Biscuits closed the gap in the 9th. LF Jason Pridie doubled, scoring 2B Josh Asanovich, to make it 3-2. However, with the tying run on third and the go-ahead run on second, former Catfish P Jonathan Meloan struck out Biscuits SS Reid Brignac to end the game.
The Biscuits stranded 10 runners on base, 6 in scoring position.
Perez now shares the team lead in doubles. He hit his 6th 2-bagger to start the game.
Feldkamp was tagged with the loss, his 3rd of the year, despite having his longest outing of the season. He struck out 3 in his 6 innings of work. Richard De Los Santos worked the last 2 innings, allowing 1 hit and striking out 1.
The Biscuits? Sorry, but that has to be one of the worst sports team names I've ever heard of. What next, the Cookies? The Cupcakes? Or are those names already in use?ReplyDelete
Montgomery has a long history of baseball, dating back to the Southern League of the 1890s. In recent years, Montgomery's teams were known as either the Grays or the Rebels.ReplyDelete
When baseball returned to Montgomery in 2004, the traditional names were politically incorrect. So they found a name that no one ... except you, apparently ... could object to.
