Friday: Stars 9, Biscuits 8

T.J. Mittelstaedt's two-run single in the eighth inning lifted the Huntsville Stars to a 9-8 win over the Biscuits on Friday.

It snapped a five-game winning streak by the Biscuits, who rallied from a six-run deficit in the first inning to take the lead.

Montgomery reliever Shane Dyer faced the minimum for five innings after coming on with none out in the first inning. He gave up one hit.

Starter Nick Barnese faced eight batters, gave up six runs and failed to record an out. The Stars had four hits, two walks and a hit batsman against Barnese. One batter reached when Barnese threw away a sacrifice bunt.

It's the first time in team history that a Biscuits starter has failed to record an out -- or three outs. In the team's previous 1,232 regular-season games, a starter lasted just one inning four times. Two of the starts ended because of lengthy rain delays.
