The Biscuits handed away Tuesday's opener of the Southern League championship series. Huntsville had only five hits in the Stars' 6-4 victory, but Montgomery committed five errors and issued seven walks.
Reid Brignac and Evan Longoria each committed two errors, one each in Huntsville's three-run eighth. They also stepped up after the game. They didn't back away from an interview, cower in an off-limits area or get snippy. They could have, but they didn't.
Jean Machi gave up a leadoff single in the eighth, threw nine straight balls and allowed a run before leaving without retiring a hitter. He also answered questions.
Auburn football player Ben Obomanu did the same after dropping a potential game-winning touchdown against Ole Miss a few years ago. He was skewered the next day, but stories after that applauded him for taking such responsibility.
That's a sign of maturity that should be applauded.
