BILOXI, Mis . – The Biscuits (43-46/15-12) lost the series finale against the Biloxi Shuckers (46-48/12-15) in their third straight extra-inning game by the score of 6-2. After a tightly contested contest, it was the Shuckers who found a surge late with four runs in the 11th inning to defeat the Biscuits.
The first four innings were merely uneventful. The Shuckers were close to putting a run on the board in the first inning with a pair of singles from Andrew Monasterio and Joey Weimer. After Weimer stole second, Biloxi had runners at second and third with two outs, however Biscuits starter Mason Montgomery was able to force a groundout to get out the inning.
In the fourth, Biloxi was able to successfully get their first run of the day when Gabe Holt hit an RBI-single. In the next inning, a passed ball by Shuckers’ Jason Lopez allowed Biscuits’ Diego Infante to score and tie the game. In the sixth, Biscuits Jordan Qsar connected on a go-ahead RBI-single to give the Biscuits the lead. The lead did not last for long, in the bottom of the inning a wild pitch by Montgomery Graeme Stinson sent Thomas Dillard home to tie the game at two.
For the remainder of the game neither team could score and the series finale made it way to extra innings. After four scoreless innings the 11th finally brought some action thanks to the bat of Montasterio. Montasterio hit a walk off grand slam to end the series finale with an exclamation mark for the Shuckers. For Montgomery they now move to 5-7 in extra-inning games of the year and continue to sit second in the division, two games behind the Mississippi Braves.
