Game 1 at Jacksonville

Biscuits win 4-3 with a four-run rally in the seventh and some gutsy pitching.

Spike Lundberg held up his end of the deal -- see today's earlier post -- with a season-high 11 strikeouts and shutout pitching for six innings. In the seventh, Michael Coleman led off with a homer to make it 3-1.

Two outs later, the Biscuits went single-double-walk-walk to make it 3-2. Then, Justin Ruggiano haunted his old team. Ruggiano, who came to the Biscuits from the Suns in July, hit a ground-rule double to left that brought home two runs and gave Montgomery the lead.

Montgomery starter Jeff Niemann gave up three runs in the first three innings, capped by a two-run homer by Tydus Meadows, then rolled. He left after 6 2/3 innings. Jacksonville, following that home run, managed only two more hits.
