Biscuits Walk off Lookouts Again, 7-6
MONTGOMERY, Ala. - The Biscuits (4-4) left it late for the second-straight night, but walked off the Chattanooga Lookouts (5-4) again, 7-6, thanks to a bases-loaded hit-by-pitch to Seaver Whalen that sealed another impressive comeback victory for Montgomery on Thursday night at Riverwalk Stadium.
Michael Plassmeyer made his second start of the season for the Biscuits, but the lefty ran into some early trouble serving up back-to-back doubles to Mark Kolozsvary and Jose Garcia to make it 1-0, Lookouts. The next batter was Narciso Crook, and the designated hitter cranked a two-run homer over the left-center field wall to extend Chattanooga's early lead to 3-0.
The Biscuits would respond in the bottom of the first with an RBI-single from Dillon Paulson. Plassmeyer then wiggled out of a bases-loaded, no-out jam in the top of the second to keep it a 3-1 contest. The Biscuits then got an RBI-double into the left-center field gap off the bat of Cal Stevenson and a Paulson sac fly against Lookouts starter Randy Wynne to knot things at three in the third.
Jordan Brink came on for Plassmeyer in the third and worked a couple of scoreless frames before passing things on to Alex Valverde, who coasted through two scoreless innings of his own. Valverde was back on in the seventh, and that's when Alejo Lopez broke the tie with a two-run double into the left-center field alley. Simon Rosenblum-Larson hit TJ Hopkins with the bases loaded later in the inning to make it 6-3, Lookouts.
But the Biscuits, as they have been wont to do in 2021, saved their best for last. Alexis Diaz came on to pitch the bottom of the night and immediately served up a double to Garrett Whitley and then an RBI-single to Miles Mastrobuoni to make it a 6-4 game. John Ghyzel then came on for Diaz mid-count to face Jake Palomaki, and eventually walked the shortstop.
Stevenson was next, and the center fielder put down a beautiful bunt, which Ghyzel fielded cleanly, but uncorked wildly on the throw to first. Paulson, who tied the game with a pinch-hit RBI-single last night, then poked another RBI-single to left to make it 6-5. Ford Proctor then struck out, and Rene Pinto walked. The bases were loaded for Whalen who took a 2-0 pitch in the back to complete another incredible Biscuits comeback.
Montgomery will try to climb above .500 on Friday, May 14 when RHP Tobias Myers (0-0) will square off against LHP Connor Curlis (1-0) at 6:35 PM CT on National Buttermilk Biscuit Night.
The rest of the home stand will include Healthcare Appreciation Night w/ MAX Fireworks on Saturday, May 15, and a Monty Night Light Giveaway presented by Little Caesars Pizza on Sunday, May 16.
