Monday: Biscuits 4, Barons 3 (Game 1)

Richie Shaffer homered and the Biscuits stole home for the first time in five years, beating the Birmingham Barons 4-3 in the opening game of Monday's doubleheader.

The finale will begin around 5:30 p.m.

Montgomery scored all of its runs in the third inning.

Taylor Motter, whose triple brought in Jake Hager with the first run, stole home as part of a double-steal to make it 2-0. Cameron Seitzer drew a two-out walk before he and Motter moved up.

The steal of home was the first for the Biscuits since April 15, 2009, when Desmond Jennings did it, also part of a first-and-third double-steal.

Shaffer, at bat for the double-steal, hit a two-run home run to left-center field, giving the Biscuits a 4-0 lead.

Birmingham answered with three runs in the fourth. Josh Richmond had an RBI single and Chris Curley a two-run double.
