(Jackson, TN) July 26th- Michael Myers three run homer in the eleventh inning gave the Birmingham Barons a 6-3 win over the West Tenn Diamond Jaxx in game four of a five game series from Pringles Park. The win by Birmingham clinches the series as well as the season series from the Diamond Jaxx.
Donny Lucy hit a one out infield single off losing pitcher Jose De la Cruz (1-2) and took second on a single to left by Sean Smith.

Fernando Hernandez pitched a perfect bottom of the eleventh inning to save the game for Oneli Perez (5-2). Lucy had three hits and a RBI while Smith and Cory Aldridge had two hits each to pace the Barons twelve hit attack.
