Matt Harrsion (4-0, 2.14 ERA) tossed 8 scoreless innings before being chased by back-to-back hits to start the 9th. He gave up one-run and scattered 7 hits with 1 walk and 4 strikeouts to stay perfect on the year. The Braves (19-7) pushed their lead to 5 games in the South Division over the Suns and Barons. The Braves ERA dropped to 2.57 and they remain in first in the Southern League ahead of Birmingham - 2.72 ERA.
The Biscuits (12-14) finally solved Matt Harrison in the 9th inning as Reid Brignac led off with a double and Evan Longoria followed with an RBI single to chase Harrison from the game. Charlie Morton induced a 6-4-3 double play on the first pitch before getting Gabriel Martinez to ground out to Hernandez to end the game on just 4 pitches. Biscuits starter Chris Seddon (2-2, 5.29 ERA) struggled to find the strike zone as he allowed 3 walks and gave up 6 runs in his four innings of work. The Biscuits ran through 4 relievers after that with Evan Meek the only Biscuit to prevent the Braves from picking up a hit.

Four more games are on tap between Mississippi and the Biscuits. I'm planning on being at the game Saturday night. If all goes well, I'll be catching the game with a blogger and others who'll be in Montgomery this weekend.
