Alejandro Segovia's two-out, two-run single highlighted a seven-run seventh inning that pushed the Biscuits to a 7-4 victory over the Mobile BayBears on Thursday.
Montgomery, scoreless in its previous 16 innings, sent 11 batters to the plate in the seventh.
Taylor Motter's one-out single brought in Joey Rickard with the first run. Cameron Seitzer was hit by a pitch with the bases loaded to cut Mobile's lead to 4-2. After a strikeout, Segovia tied it with a single to right field before Luke Maile's infield single brought in Seitzer.
Jake Hager, whose single led off the inning, singled home Segovia before Rickard singled in Maile to cap the rally.
Montgomery's bullpen was exemplary.
Relievers Jake Thompson, Matt Ramsey and Santiago Garrido combined for 4 2/3 shutout innings. Thompson (1-0) gave up the only hit against the bullpen. Garrido was perfect over the final two innings for his third save.
The Biscuits finished with 15 hits, all singles. That's the most hits -- without one for extra bases -- in team history. Last season, the Biscuits had just three games of at least 15 hits and sported only two innings of at least seven runs.
