Mississippi Braves 0, Montgomery Biscuits 5

  • Tommy La Stella, DH: 0-3, BB, .335
  • Edward Salcedo, 3B: 1-3, BB, SB(18), .244
  • Greg Golson, CF: 2-4, SB(3), OF Assist, .267
  • Jaime Pedroza, SS: 2-3, .284
  • Gus Schlosser, SP: 2.1 IP, 8 H, 4 R, 3 BB, 1 K, 2.50 ERA
Mississippi got shut out last night by the Biscuits (that's a weird sentence to write...) and only managed 6 hits. 4 of those 6 were off the bats of Greg Golson and Jaime Pedroza. Golson had himself a nice little game, going 2-4 with a stolen base. He also gunned a runner down at the plate. Gus Schlosser had an awful start, not even making it through 3 innings before surrendering 4 runs. Given that he allowed 11 baserunners, he's lucky it wasn't worse. Edward Salcedo drew a walk today, always nice to see.

David Rohm added 3 hits as well, including a pair of doubles, while Elmer Reyes had a pair of two-baggers as well. Daniel Castro collected 4 singles and stole his second base of the year.
