Despite a sometimes sloppy performance that saw the home team commit four errors, the Barons continued their recent run of dominance at Regions Field, defeating the Montgomery Biscuits 7-3 in front of 5,081 fans on a perfect Mothers Day in Birmingham.
The Barons trailed 2-0 early as starter Spencer Arroyo flirted with danger for much of the afternoon scattering six hits and navigating through defensive miscues over 6.0 innings. The Barons were held scoreless until the fifth when Dan Wagner's RBI ground out scored Michael Earley from third base to make it a 2-1 ball game.
The score remained 2-1 until the 7th but as has been the case throughout the first two months at Regions Field, the Barons rallied, putting up five runs in the frame to take a 6-2 lead. Wagner tied the game with an RBI single that scored Andy Wilkins from second base just ahead of the throw from center field. Biscuits manager Billy Gardner Jr. was ejected following the play for arguing with the umpire. After the dust settled, the Barons four more times in the inning on a bases loaded walk to Tyler Saladino, a wild pitch and a two-run single by Trayce Thompson.
