Bisons get one hit, lose 8-0

Niagara Gazette — Anthony Gose got the Buffalo Bisons' only hit of the game, and it came with two outs left in the top of the ninth inning.

Spoiling a combined no-hit bid by four Columbus pitchers was about the only Buffalo highlight Friday evening, as the host Clippers finished their four-game series by finishing off the Bisons, 8-0, at Huntington Park.

The only other Bison to reach base during the game was Jim Negrych, who reached safely in the fourth inning on an error by first baseman Chun-Hsiu Chen. That ended a perfect game bid but the no-hitter was still alive.

Roberto Perez led the Clippers at the plate, going 3 for 4. All his hits were doubles. He also scored three of the Clippers' runs.

Danny Salazar (4-2) got the win for Columbus, pitching five innings and striking out eight Buffalo hitters. Preston Guilmet pitched the next two innings, followed by single inning efforts by Vinnie Pestano and Clay Rapada, the latter of whom surrendered the only hit.

J.A. Happ (0-2) took the loss for Buffalo.

The Bisons (57-55) return home today to begin a four-game series against the Pawtucket Red Sox (59-53). It's a series that could put Buffalo into second place in the International League North Division. Heading into today's contest, which begins at 7:05 p.m., Buffalo trails first-place Rochester by 3 1/2 games. Pawtucket is in second place, 1 1/2 games behind the Red Wings.

Thad Weber (9-5 overall, 5-4 with) is expected to start on the mound for Buffalo, while Pawtucket is expected to go with Rubby De La Rosa (3-3).
