MOBILE, AL -- The Mobile BayBears scored four runs in the bottom of the sixth inning to come back and defeat the Montgomery Biscuits 5-3 Saturday night at Hank Aaron Stadium. The two teams were tied at 1-1 through the first five innings when the Biscuits jumped out to a two run lead in the top half of the sixth but couldn't hold the advantage in the bottom half of the inning. Mobile improved to 5-4 on the season which ties them for first place with the Biscuits in the Southern League South Division Standings.
Montgomery got on the bored first with a solo homer from Luke Maile in the top of the second inning. The BayBears matched the score in the bottom of the second when David Peralta scored on a ground out from Gerson Montilla. The 1-1 scored would hold until the sixth when the Biscuits reclaimed the lead on a RBI base hit from Cameron Seitzer put Montgomery up by one and the Biscuits took a 3-1 advantage in the very next at bat when Alejandro Segovia drove home Willie Argo with a run scoring base knock.
In the bottom half of the same inning, Sean Jamieson reached base on a one-out bunt-single and quickly made it from first to third on a base hit from Mike Freeman. After Justin Greene drove in Jamieson with a sacrifice fly, Jake Lamb tied the game with an RBI base hit. Two batters later Peralta gave Mobile a 5-3 lead with a two-run double that plated Lamb and Garrett Weber.
RHP Bryan Woodall pitch five quality innings but left the game trailing 3-1 in the sixth. Woodall had to settle for his second straight no decision, finishing 5.2 innings, allowing just 3 earned runs on seven hits. The win was credited to RHP Willy Paredes who only allowed one base runner with a walk in 1.1 innings in relief. After RHP Jake Barrett worked a scoreless eighth to preserve the two run BayBears lead, RHP Matt Stites recorded his first save of 2014, retiring the Biscuits in order in the ninth inning.
