Chris Reed, a former No. 1 pick of the Los Angeles Dodgers, was in complete command against the Montgomery Biscuits most of the night. But so, too, was Montgomery starter Michael Colla. Colla worked seven shutout innings, allowing only four hits to lead the Biscuits to a 3-0 victory at AT&T Field.

The Biscuits added an insurance run against Onelki Garcia, while the Montgomery bullpen (Marquis Fleming and C.J. Riefenhauser) were up to locking down the shutout, the latter earning his 11th save.

Colla improved to 3-0 and the Biscuits have won all four of his starts since he was picked off the scrap heap of the independent Atlantic League by Tampa Bay. He has allowed only one run over his last 14 innings.

Neither team scored until the fifth inning, when the Biscuits loaded the bases with nobody out. A run scored on a double-play ball, and Reed escaped further trouble.

The Lookouts offense could not answer and the visitors scored their second run in the eighth on a leadoff double by Riccio Torrez and a pair of ground balls.

Garcia was touched for a run on a Hector Guevara single, a stolen base and a Cameron Seitzer single.

The Biscuits outhit the Lookouts 7-5, with Torrez and Kevin Klemaier picking up two apiece.

Blake Smith had a double among the Lookouts' safeties.

Box Score

The Lookouts won't have long to fret about this game, however, as the two teams hurry back to AT&T Field Wednesday morning for an 11:15 a.m. battle. Andres Santiago (3-5) will be on the hill for Chattanooga.

With the bases loaded and no one out in the fifth, pitching coach Hector Berrios met with Chris Reed on the mound. The next batter grounded into a double-play.

Roy Exum: It Was Our Tool Shed

Some said the huge beams had been soaking in creosote for two or three years when the men finally stacked them to dry. They were long, about 20 feet each, and thick – maybe eight inches. I remember they were 14 inches wide but the biggest thing I remember was that it was the ugliest lumber I ever saw. They cured the beams for one entire hot summer in the Tool Shed, a huge building ... (click for more)
