After plating two runs in the first season, the Huntsville Stars were shutout in their final eight innings on Saturday night, losing to the Montgomery Biscuits by a score of 7-2 at Joe Davis Stadium. In the first, Huntsville got their runs on a two-run single by first baseman Hunter Morris.
The loss wasted another strong start from Stars pitcher Kyle Heckathorn as he fell to 2-6 on the year after giving up three runs (two earned) on five hits in six innings pitched. Overall, the Stars have now lost 10 of their last 11 games.
The finale of a five-game series with the Biscuits and the first half of the Southern League season will take place on Sunday with a Father's Day special. Huntsville will send RHP Hiram Burgos (1-1, 2.80
ERA) to the mound to square off against Montgomery RHP Matt Buschmann (2-2, 3.63 ERA). First pitch is at 1:03 PM.
