Biloxi Shuckers beat Birmingham on walk-off single in the bottom of the 12th

BILOXI, MS (WLOX) - The Biloxi Shuckers were coasting to what appeared to be an easy 4-0 win over Birmingham in Huntsville before the Barons entered the top of the ninth inning.

Birmingham would plate four runs in the inning to extend the game.  It stayed that way until the bottom of the 12th.  Taylor Green stepped up to the plate and delivered a walk-off game winning single that drove home the games winning run.  Green was 2 for 5 on the night with two runs batted in.

Jaye Chapman (0.95 ERA) picked up his fourth win of the season against 2 losses as he pitched the top of the 12th. The Barons had the bases loaded but Chapman pitched the Shuckers out of trouble and that led to Green's game winning single in the bottom of the inning.

Jorge Lopez started the game for the Shuckers and gave up 2 hits, no runs, 4 walks and 5 strikeouts in 5.2 innings.

Adam Weisenburger had a good night at the plate hitting safely in 2 of 5 trips and had an RBI.  Orlando Arcia was 1 for 4 with one RBI.
