James Ramsey cut the Montgomery lead with his third home run since joining the club to make it 3-1 in the fifth.

That was followed by a Chris Paul double that cut the margin to one run. Andy Wilkins belted a deep double to center and Paul was the thrown out trying to score to tie the game. It would be the Lookouts last base hit.

The Biscuits added an insurance run in the bottom and the Looks went in order in the ninth.
