The Montgomery Biscuits (43-45, 15-11 2nd Half) scored six runs in the tenth inning to top the Biloxi Shuckers (45-48, 11-15 2nd Half) 9-4 on Saturday night at MGM Park.
Biloxi struck for a pair of runs in the second inning. Cam Devanney blasted a solo home run to right with one out, his 16th of the year, to put Biloxi up 1-0. On the very next pitch, Tristen Lutz hit a line-drive homer over the left-field wall, his ninth of the year, to make it 2-0 Shuckers.
RHP Noah Zavolas worked the first five frames for the Shuckers and allowed just one run on a single in the third. RHP Carlos Luna (BS, 1) came on in the sixth and pitched a scoreless sixth and seventh before running into trouble in the eighth when Erik Ostberg tied the game on a solo homer to right.
The Shuckers scratched across a run in the home half of the eighth inning to re-take the lead. Devanney drew a lead-off walk and a hit by pitch put two men on with one out. Yeison Coca popped out in foul territory down the right-field line, but the foul out was deep enough to advance Devanney to third. A wild pitch by LHP Jose Lopez (W, 6-3) allowed Devanney to race in and score, once again putting the Shuckers ahead 3-2.
A solo home run sent the game to extras when Kameron Misner hit a lead-off homer to start the ninth. The Shuckers put the winning run on base in the bottom of the ninth inning on a Joey Wiemer single but could not drive him in.
Montgomery used five singles and a hit-by-pitch to score six runs against RHP Nash Walters (L, 5-2) and take a 9-3 lead to the bottom of the 10th. RHP Josh Roberson walked three batters to force in a run but got the final three outs to close out the game for the Biscuits.
