Clifton (1-2) picked up the win after he struck out five and walked one while allowing one hit.

Tennessee went up 4-0 in the seventh after Zack Short hit a two-run single and Trey Martin stole home.

The Biscuits cut into the deficit in the eighth inning when Dalton Kelly scored on a forceout and Jermaine Palacios scored on a wild pitch.
