Saturday: Blue Wahoos 5, Biscuits 4

PENSACOLA, Fla. -- Brian Peacock's squeeze bunt with two outs in the bottom of the ninth inning gave the Pensacola Pelicans a 5-4 win over the Biscuits on Saturday.

Peacock's bunt brought home Josh Felhauer, who was pinch-running for Joel Guzman. Guzman doubled to lead off the inning. After a bunt and an intentional walk, P.J. Phillips hit a groundball that the Biscuits were unable to convert into a double play.

With runners on first and third, Peacock bunted up the first-base line. First baseman Mike Sheridan fielded the ball, but was too far from the base and nobody was able to cover the bag.

Biscuits starter Kyle Lobstein posted a quality start and Montgomery led 4-1 in the seventh inning. In six innings, Lobstein gave up one run on three hits.

Reliever Kirby Yates gave up three straight two-out hits before giving way to Adam Liberatore (0-1), who was making his Double-A debut. Pinch-hitter Mike Costanzo hit a two-run single off Liberatore to tie it 4-4.
