CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (AP) -- Dalton Kelly hit a run-scoring single in the fifth inning, leading the Montgomery Biscuits to a 9-7 win over the Chattanooga Lookouts on Friday.

Yoel Espinal allowed a run, but got Luis Arraez to fly out with runners on first and third to end the game for his third save of the season.

The single by Kelly started the scoring in a four-run inning and gave the Biscuits a 3-2 lead. Later in the inning, Jake Cronenworth hit a two-run single and Kelly scored on a double play.

The Biscuits later added a run in the sixth and two in the seventh. In the sixth, Nathaniel Lowe hit an RBI single, while Thomas Milone hit a two-run single in the seventh.

Chattanooga saw its comeback attempt come up short after Brent Rooker hit a three-run home run in the eighth inning to help cut the Montgomery lead to 9-7.

Lowe doubled and singled three times, driving in a run and also scoring one for Montgomery.

J.D. Martin (7-9) got the win in relief while Williams Ramirez (2-5) took the loss in the Southern League game.

The Lookouts left some scoring opportunities on the table, stranding 12 baserunners in the loss. Rooker homered and singled, driving home three runs and scoring a couple for the Lookouts. Jaylin Davis was a home run short of the cycle, driving in two runs.

Montgomery improved to 8-4 against Chattanooga this season.
