Sunday: Stars 8, Biscuits 2

Hunter Morris tied a season high with four RBIs and took over the Southern League RBI lead in the Huntsville Stars' 8-2 win over the Biscuits on Sunday.

Morris, a former Auburn All-American, has 113 RBIs this season and has a .303 average. He hit his 28th home run in the fifth inning, a three-run blast to put Huntsville ahead and added an RBI single in the eighth.

The Biscuits, who clinched a Southern League playoff berth Saturday, scored in the first and ninth innings.

Omar Luna singled home Ty Morrison in the first and his groundout brought in Shawn O'Malley in the ninth. Luna, who finished 2-for-5, leads the Southern League with a .315 batting average with one game left in the regular season.

Right-hander Jake Thompson (7-12) gave up four runs in 4 2/3 innings to tie Tony Peguero for the most losses in Biscuits history. Peguero finished 10-12 in 2006.
