The quartet of pitchers combined for eight strikeouts and led Biloxi to a 1-0 win over Tennessee in Game 2 of a doubleheader after the Smokies had taken Game 1, 4-1.
Box score
Burgos fired two perfect innings to start the game before handing off to Snow, who picked up the win after his three innings on the mound.
Snow retired the first five batters he faced before issuing a walk, ending the chance for a combined perfect game. However, the free pass didn't faze Snow, who promptly retired the next four batters he faced to finish his outing.

Ramirez faced four batters and struck out one as he cruised through the sixth, his second straight outing without allowing a hit, and handed the ball off to Lopez.
Lopez began the season as a starter but has pitched out of the bullpen since late June and needed just eight pitches (seven strikes) to pick up his fifth save and create a new entry in the Biloxi record books.
