The Mongomery Biscuits had one more rally in their hip pocket than the Chattanooga Lookouts did Monday night. In a back-and-forth series opener at AT&T Field, the Biscuits came away a 5-4 victory in 10 innings Monday night on a bases loaded walk to the eighth man in the batting order Hector Guevara.

Starting pitcher Zach Lee was roughed up in the first inning. He gave up two runs on four hits. Lee settled down and threw shutout ball for the next five innings.

Chattanooga got a run back in the second inning on J. T. Wise's solo home run.

The Lookouts took the lead in the third inning.  Once again it was Wise who did the damage with his two-run single. Wise was thrown out at second to end that inning, and the Lookouts would not threaten again until the eighth.

Chattanooga took a 4-3 lead in the eighth on a two-out hit from Angelo Songco, chasing home Bobby Coyle, who had also singled.

It looked like the Lookouts were about to their fourth consecutive game until the BayBears tied the score, 4-4. Chattanooga came within an out of putting the Biscuits away in the top of the ninth, but an RBI triple from leadoff man Kevin Kiermaier pushed across the tying run. Hector Nelo, having blown the save, stranded Kiermaier at third.

In the 10th inning, Lookouts reliever Luis Vazquez had major control problems as he walked three, including what turned out to be the winning run, in his lone inning of work.

Montgomery's standout closer, C.J. Riefenhauser, earned his fourth win without a loss and lowered his league best ERA below 0.50.

Do Something To Protect Our Children

It is unconscionable in this day and age that these children had to exist in such deplorable conditions and that an innocent baby suffered and died alone in a locked car.  Yes, there is blame and accountability considering this family had child neglect charges filed a few years ago (that were apparently dropped and expunged) and a large part of the responsibility should ...
