UNDATED (WLOX) -

Brett Phillips homered in the first, second and seventh innings to lift the Biloxi Shuckers to a 9-3 win over the Pensacola Blue Wahoos Saturday night.

Biloxi (18-10) entered with a four-game losing streak and was out-hit by Pensacola 10-8, but tallied seven runs in the first three innings to jump out to an early 7-3 lead.

Phillips finished with six RBIs and three runs scored. Kyle Wren reached base before every Phillips homer, also scored three times and drove in a run.

Jed Bradley earned the win in relief for the Shuckers, striking out two and allowing two hits in 3 and 1/3 innings of work.

Tyrone Taylor and Javier Betancourt helped out with the other RBIs for the Shuckers, who will return home for a five-game series with the Jacksonville Suns after playing the series finale with Pensacola on Sunday at 4 p.m.
