JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - Joe Dunand homered on Monday, but the Montgomery Biscuits eased by the Jacksonville Jumbo Shrimp 9-4 from the Baseball Grounds of Jacksonville.

With one out in a scoreless third inning, Miles Mastrobuoni reached on an error and stole second. Brett Sullivan laced an RBI double off Jacksonville (24-40) starter Robert Dugger (6-6) for the game's first run. Jesus Sanchez walked before Sullivan was caught stealing third for the frame's second out. Tristan Gray then blasted a two-run home run to make it 3-0 Montgomery (39-24).

Another error placed Lucius Fox on to start the fourth. After a fly out, David Rodriguez crushed an RBI triple. Rodriguez scored on Jermaine Palacios' RBI ground out to extend the advantage to 5-0. 

Justin Twine and Brian Miller jumpstarted the bottom of the fourth with consecutive singles against Biscuits starter Paul Campbell (1-0) to put runners on the corners. Dunand's sacrifice fly put the Jumbo Shrimp on the board at 5-1.

Rodriguez collected another RBI triple in the sixth before Palacios followed with a run-scoring base hit to get the tally to 7-1.

In the bottom of the frame, Miller doubled with one out. Dunand then socked a two-run home run to draw Jacksonville within 7-3.

B.J. Lopez reached on an error to start the seventh. After a pair of outs, Twine tripled Lopez in to cut the deficit to three.

Another Jumbo Shrimp error in the eighth scored two Biscuits and made the score 9-4.
