In a game where they took a six-run deficit and made it into a tie ballgame in the ninth inning, the Huntsville Stars ultimately fell to the Montgomery Biscuits by a final score of 9-7 on Thursday night at Joe Davis Stadium. Trailing 7-1 in the seventh inning, the Stars cut the Biscuits lead to two after a pair of two-run homeruns by catcher Anderson De La Rosa and center fielder Josh Prince. In the eighth, an RBI single by first baseman Hunter Morris and a sacrfice fly by designated hitter Domnit Bolivar tied the game up up at seven apiece.
However, Montgomery was able to load the bases in the ninth inning and score two runs off of Stars releiver Brandon Kintzler to ultimately win the game. The loss was the Stars ninth in a row.
On Friday, the Stars will send RHP Jimmy Nelson (4-4, 2.12 ERA with High-A Brevard County) to the mound to make his Double-A debut. He will be opposed by Biscuits LHP Kyle Lobstein (3-2, 4.15 ERA).
