Montgomery Biscuits starting pitcher Chris Seddon pitched 7 innings of 1-hit ball, but got into a jam in the 8th and left with a no decision in tonight's 2-1 loss to the Birmingham Barons (White Sox).
The Biscuits got on the board first. In the 3rd inning, with 1 out, CF Fernando Perez walked, moved to third on a single to left by SS Brooks Badeaux, and scored when 3B Evan Longoria singled to right field.
Birmingham tied the game in the 5th when DH Cory Aldridge got the Barons first hit of the night on a single on a fly ball to left field. After moving to second on a ground out and to third on a wild pitch, he scored on C Donny Lucy's sacrifice fly.
Though 7 innings, the only other base runners Birmingham had off of Seddon were on walks, of which one was stranded and the other picked off.
The 8th inning spelled trouble for Seddon, who allowed the first 2 runners on singles. Former Columbus Catfish Brett Wayne relieved him, and got out of the inning.
The Biscuits had runners in scoring position in both the 9th and 10th innings, each time with 1 out, but were unable to capitalize.
Birmingham scored in the bottom of the 10th to win the game, taking game 1 of this 5-game series.
Nick Debarr took the loss for the Biscuits, his 2nd loss against 2 wins in his 5th appearance out of the bullpen this season.
