Tuesday: Suns 5, Biscuits 4

Jake Jefferies hit a three-run home run in the ninth inning to push the Jacksonville Suns to a 5-4 win over the Biscuits on Tuesday.

Jefferies, who played for the Biscuits last season, hit a 1-2, one-out pitch from Kirby Yates over the right-field wall for his first homer of the season. It gave Jacksonville a 5-3 lead.

Jefferies entered Tuesday with a .158 average and failed to get a ball out of the infield on his first three at-bats.

Mike Sheridan's RBI single in the bottom of the ninth pulled the Biscuits to within one run. David Wendt followed with a deep fly ball that left fielder Jake Smolinski caught on the warning track.

Tyler Bortnick hit his first home run in the fourth inning and added an RBI single in the sixth for Montgomery. Both came with two outs.

Kyle Lobstein threw six innings of one-run, three-hit ball. Lobstein, who served up a one-out homer in the first to Ryan Patterson, walked three and struck out six.
