Mississippi found itself winning its fourth straight game Tuesday night in front of just over 1,700 fans. Edward Salcedo, who turned 22 yesterday, finished a home run shy of the cycle, hitting his second triple and 21st double of the season. It was one of those days when you step back and realize that he is still fairly young, even though it seems like he has been in the system forever. Christian Bethancourt doubled in the 7th, extending his on-base streak to 28 games. Mycal Jones reached base in two of his four plate appearances, also swiping two bags. The pitching wasn't stellar, but was good enough to keep Montgomery to under seven runs. Flame-thrower Juan Jamie struck out the side in his one inning of work.
