MONTGOMERY, Ala. – The Biscuits (45-47/17-13) split their home doubleheader against the Pensacola Blue Wahoos (50-44/15-15) with a shutout 9-0 win, and a near comeback where they fell short 4-2. The Biscuits nearly no-hit the Blue Wahoos as they only acquired one hit in game one. Two home runs, including a three-run from J.D. Osborne lifted the Blue Wahoos to victory in game two.
Montgomery could not ask for a better game in the first game of their doubleheader. It all started with a three-run home run from slugger Niko Hulsizer, his 11th of the year in the bottom of the first. The boys in blue continued to impose their will on the Blue Wahoos when Evan Edwards and Tyler Frank hit back-to-back home runs, Montgomery’s third of the year.
The Biscuits kept fire as they made it three-straight innings with multi-runs. Brett Wisely smacked a line drive RBI-single to right. Shortstop Greg Jones then connected on a two-run RBI-single to put the Biscuits up 8-0.
On the mound the Biscuits were golden. Starter John Doxakis (2-4) gave up a single hit during his start of six innings. Doxakis threw four strikeouts and was credited with his second win of the year. The Biscuits secured one more run for good measure as Osleivis Basabe delivered an RBI-single to make it 9-0. Alan Strong closed out the game and fourth shutout of the year.
Game two started where game one left off. The Biscuits got on the board first in the fourth inning with an RBI-single from Jordan Qsar that had the Biscuits ahead 1-0. Starter Michael Mercado (2-5) went four innings before the Blue Wahoos figured him out in the fifth. After back-to-back singles from Troy Johnston and Will Banfield, J.D Osborne crushed a three-run home run to put the Blue Wahoos up 3-1.
Pensacola added another home run in the sixth inning with a solo shot from Cobie Fletcher-Vance for the Blue Wahoos’ fourth unanswered run and a lead of 4-1. With the pressure on in the seventh, Montgomery kept hope alive. Blake Hunt immediately got on base with a double. Erik Ostberg brought him home with an RBI-single to shorten the lead to 4-2. However, the lead would stay that way as Wisely and Jones would strike out back-to-back to Eli Villalobos. Basabe would flyout for the final out as Pensacola escaped with a win and a split doubleheader
