JACKSON, Ten. - Justin Williams' two-run home run in the ninth inning broke a 4-4 tie and led the Biscuits (7-5) to their second-straight win over the Jackson Generals (8-4), 6-4, on Tuesday night in West Tennessee.
The Biscuits sent Hunter Wood to the mound and the right-hander turned out another solid outing, going six innings and allowing just three runs to go along with four strikeouts in a no decision.
Montgomery got on the board first thanks to an RBI-single by Justin O'Conner in the third, before Jackson put up a three-spot in the same inning. In the fifth, Riley Unroe and Braxton Lee would both come through with two-out RBI-single to tie the game at three.
Williams would get a taste of the Jackson bullpen in the seventh when he drove in Michael Russell on a sac fly to left to make it 4-3, after the first baseman tripled, but Jordan Harrison would relinquish that lead in the bottom half of the inning on a two-out double by Kevin Medrano.
The game remained deadlocked at four until Williams stepped up and launched his second homer of the season over the right-field wall that plated Russell again, before Kyle Winkler slammed the door in the ninth for his fourth save of the season.
The Biscuits are now a game behind the Generals for first place in the First Half North, and will send Jose Mujica (NR) to the hill to make his Double-A debut against Brooks Hall (0-0, 10.80) on Wednesday morning at 11:05 AM.
