Barons Fall to Biscuits in Regular Season Finale

September 2, 2013 - Southern League (SL) - Birmingham Barons News Release

In the 2013 regular season finale, the Birmingham Barons fell to the Montgomery Biscuits by a score of 9-2 in front of 4,388 fans at Regions Field.

After watching the Biscuits score two runs in the top first, the Barons responded with a leadoff single by Micah Johnson and a two-run homer by Cody Puckett, his 15th homer of the season.

However, a five run outburst by the Biscuits in the fourth proved to be too much for the Barons to overcome. The inning was highlighted by RBI doubles from Shawn O'Malley and Cameron Seitzer. All seven runs were scored against starter Myles Jaye (0-1, 17.18), who was making his Double-A debut. Jaye allowed the seven runs on eight hits over 3.2 IP.

The lead would grow to 9-2 in the sixth on a two-run single by Seitzer against reliever Ryan Kussmaul.

Jim Patterson (1-4, 4.17) held the Barons in check for much of the afternoon, scattering five hits and allowing just two runs while striking out six over 6.0 IP.

With the loss, the Barons finished the regular season with a record of 77-63 and 33-37 in the second half while Montgomery finished at 71-69 and 34-36 in the second half.

The Barons finished the season with a home attendance of 396,820, the fourth-highest attendance in Southern League history (since 1964) and the fourth-highest attendance in Barons franchise history (since 1901).

The Barons will have two days off before starting the Southern League playoffs against the Tennessee Smokies on Thursday, September 5th at Regions Field. First pitch of game one is scheduled for 7:05 PM CDT.
