Jake Thompson, after giving up a leadoff home run, threw seven strong innings to lead the Biscuits in a 2-1 win over the Jackson Generals on Friday.
Leon Landry began the game with a home run to right field off Thompson, who allowed only one other runner to safely reach second base. He gave up five hits with two walks and four strikeouts. Thompson (3-5) had lost his last three starts.
Thompson's seven innings tied for the longest outing of his Double-A career. He also went seven innings, giving up an unearned run, in a win at Jackson in July 2012.
Kevin Kiermaier and Shawn O'Malley hit consecutive RBI singles in the third inning for Montgomery. Riccio Torrez and Mark Thomas started the inning with back-to-back walks before Robi Estrada's sacrifice bunt put both in scoring position.
The Generals had the potential tying run in scoring position in both the eighth and ninth innings. Juan Sandoval survived both for his 10th save.
The Biscuits improved to 12-2 in one-run games this season. Otherwise, they're 11-22.
