MONTGOMERY, Ala.. – The Biscuits (7-8) opened up their homestead series against the Mississippi Braves (5-11) with a tough loss, 6-3, Tuesday night at Riverwalk Stadium.

Austin Shenton got the ball rolling in the bottom of the first with an RBI-triple to make it 1-0 Biscuits. A Kameron Misner RBI-single snuck past the M-Braves infield to send Shenton home to make it 2-0 in the next at-bat.

Jefrey Ramos doubled on a line drive to center to send two M-Braves home to tie the game at two in the top of the fourth against Caleb Sampen (0-1) after Evan McKendry spun three scoreless innings in his first Double-A start. Ramos advanced to third on a fielding error by Biscuits shortstop Greg Jones.

In the fifth, Curtis Mead doubled to left and was in scoring position. Shenton singled, but a controversial call at the plate prevented Mead from scoring and the Biscuits from taking the lead. Even after an umpire meeting the call still stood at the disproval of the home fans at Riverwalk Stadium.

Drew Lugbauer made sure not to leave the game in the umpire’s hands as he blasted a no-doubt solo home run in the top of sixth for the M-Braves to take the lead 3-2. Jordan Qsar wasted no time responding as he hit a solo home run of his own to tie the game at three before Wisely struck out to retire the side in the sixth.

In the seventh, Mississippi was building momentum with back-to-back singles. Jacob Pearson eventually hit a sac fly, that scored Michael Harris II and made it 4-3 M-Braves.

Jones picked up his second double of the night in the seventh and it was not long before he caught the M-Braves slacking as he stole third. Jones now has nine stolen bases on the season. Only 90 feet away from home, Jones was not able to take advantage as Misner grounded out to end the inning and kept the score 4-3.

In the eighth, things started to get out of control for the Biscuits. Back-to-back doubles from Lugbauer and Yariel Gonzalez set the tone, with the latter hitting a ground-rule double that grew the Mississippi lead to 5-3. The snowball continued to roll downhill as Jones picked up his second throwing error of the night and Gonzalez scored to make it 6-3.

Alan Strong kept it short and sweet to retire the M-Braves one-two-three on five pitches in the top of the ninth. Hope was still alive in Riverwalk when Mead smacked a double in the bottom of the ninth. After a wild pitch by Indigo Diaz, Mead advanced and was 90 feet from home with only one out. Diaz, however, would refocus, and closed the game with consecutive strikeouts for the Mississippi win.

The Biscuits will try to even the series and get back to .500 on Wednesday when Taj Bradley (1-0) faces off against Darius Vines (1-1) at 6:35 PM on Military Appreciation Night presented by WOW! Fireworks

Kimchi Hat Giveaway pres. by Pulmuone on Friday, April 29th; "Fan vs. Food" Challenge & MAX Fireworks on Saturday, April 30th; and Kids Lunchbox Giveaway pres. by the Montgomery Area Food Bank on Sunday, April 31st.
