Chris Archer collected both a date and a victory Thursday, throwing seven shutout innings in the Biscuits' 4-2 win over the Tennessee Smokies.
Archer, the prize in a “win a date” competition, allowed just four hits, walked three and struck out six. Sarah Kelly, a paralegal who lives in Lowndesboro, was the lucky winner of a date with Archer.
John Matulia hit a two-run home run to cap a three-run fourth inning for the Biscuits. Stephen Vogt doubled and scored in the sixth.
