On Monday night in Bham the Skitz took the fifth game of the series from the Barons. After knocking them around this week, the Biscuits one run lead might as well have been a twenty run lead to the Barons.
The Sox affiliate out-hit the Biscuits but left a ton of men on base and looked to be playing flat after Montgomery bumped them from the top spot.

In the sixth inning, pushing his pitch count and obviously tiring, Jacob worked out of a bases-loaded jam, preserving his one run lead.

Schrieber, the closer, made things interesting in the 9th by loading the bases but got a groundout to seal the win and the sweep.
During this series Tim Anderson was giving TOOTBLAN courses at Regions Field. No its not a new programming language, its an acronym for Taken Off Of The Bases Like A Nincompoop (see figures 1-3 in this section)
During this five game set the Barons prospect shortstop has repeatedly made baserunning mistake after baserunning mistake, removing himself from the bases.
On Monday evening, down just a run, with two outs the powerful Hayes stood at the plate. But Tim Anderson again was caught napping and O'Conner threw behind him to pick him off and end the inning.
