For the second day in a row, a huge frame doomed the Biscuits. A walk to Brent Morel started the fourth inning for the Barons. Christian Marrero and Salvador Sanchez then singled to load the bases, and Cole Armstrong drove home two with a single to make it 3-0. Coats would knock home to with a single, Jim Gallagher scored one with a double, and Morel plated two with a double in his second at-bat of the frame to make it 8-0.
