Biscuits Bounce Back, Beat Braves

Montgomery BiscuitsAfter losing 4 in a row, the Montgomery Biscuits seemed poised for a horrible series against the Mississippi Braves. But they broke out of the slump, behind the pitching of Chris Mason, winning 7-4 on Friday night.
Mason (4-0) allowed three runs on six hits and a pair of walks over five innings. He has given up only four earned runs in his last four starts, all wins. The 22-year-old right-hander ranks fifth in the Southern League with a 1.87 ERA.

Dale Thayer tossed a scoreless ninth for his fifth save.

Jason Pridie went 3-for-5 with three runs scored and Greg Norton delivered a two-run double for the Biscuits (14-15). Reid Brignac doubled in a run and scored to help Montgomery (14-15) snap a four-game losing streak.

I'll be at the game in Montgomery tonight, along with a visitor from Mississippi. Perhaps one of us will be the 1,000,000th fan to attend a Biscuits game.
