Montgomery 6, Mississippi 5 (11 innings; Montgomery leads series 2-1). The Biscuits trailed 5-2 early in the game but rallied to tie it in the 7th and Josh Arhart came through with a pinch-single for the walk-off victory in the 11th. Brooks Badeaux led off the inning with a walk and Reid Brignac followed with a bloop single that fell in left field. The Braves changed pitchers and John Jaso lined out to the first baseman. Arhart then lined a single to right field with Badeaux scoring from second. Chris Mason struggled from the mound. He was touched for all 5 runs in 4 innings off of 7 hits, including an uncharacteristic 3 home runs. During the regular season, Mason only allowed 7 home runs in 161.1 innings (1 every 23 inn.). The bullpen picked up the slack allowing only 1 hit in 7 innings. Things did get dicey in the top of the 11th when Jeremy Flanagan walked 2 and intentionally walked a third to load the bases. He was able to retire the side when he got the final out on a fly ball to center. Gaby Martinez was 3-4 with a 2-run home run. Brignac was 1-5 with a walk and his second error of the series.
