MOBILE, AL – Biscuits (44-34) pitching hurled their tenth and eleventh shutouts of the season en route to a doubleheader sweep of the Mobile BayBears (42-36) on Thursday night at Hank Aaron Stadium by finals of 1-0 and 2-0.
In the first game, things stayed scoreless into the seventh (and final) inning. Chris Nowak launched a solo homer to left field, and Matt Gorgen (15) came on and worked a perfect ninth inning for the save. Nowak’s homer was one of two Biscuits hits in the first game.
In the seventh inning of the second game, Craig Albernaz executed a squeeze bunt to score Drew Anderson, who was pinch running for Henry Wrigley, and break another late scoreless tie. This time, it was Paul Phillips (6) collecting the save in the bottom half.
