Double-A Montgomery Biscuits (68-54)
The Montgomery Biscuits defeated the Jackson Generals 4-0 in the completion of a game that was postponed on August 1. It’s been over a month since the starter Dalton Moats has recorded more than six outs in a game with some of the work coming as an opener and some as a reliever. In this case he opened for the two innings on August 1 before the game was postponed by rain. He threw the next two innings throwing the third and fourth innings after the game resumed. So he opened for himself in an odd bullpen game. Michael Brosseau got the Biscuits on the board with a two run homer in the fourth. Nick Solak picked up two singles and a RBI.
