Biscuits Lose 4th Straight

Montgomery BiscuitsIt's been a long week for the Montgomery Biscuits. They lost their 4th straight game Thursday, falling to the Mississippi Braves, 7-4.
For the second straight day, each member of the Mississippi starting lineup reached base. The Braves tallied twice in the first (on Matt Esquivel's league-leading eighth home run of the season), twice in the second, once in the third and once in the fourth off Feldkamp on their way to victory.

That offense came in support of Mississippi starter Jo-Jo Reyes (2-1), who gave up four runs on five hits in five innings.

Three Braves relievers combined to shut out Montgomery on one hit over the final four innings. The last was closer Joey Devine, who pitched around a one-out single and a walk to earn his seventh save of the season.

On the other side, the Biscuits bullpen combined to allow just one run over five innings, though they handed out seven walks in the process.

Perhaps this is all leading up to a big recovery on Saturday, when I make my next Biscuits game in person. Of course, that'd ruin the game for another blogger who's taking in Saturday's game as part of a larger visit to the Montgomery area.

Somebody's going to be unhappy Saturday. And if things don't turn around, it'll be me and 7,000 other Biscuits fans.
