Niagara Gazette — The Indianapolis Indians scored three runs in the top of the ninth but could not complete a comeback against the Buffalo Bisons, who won the game at Coca-Cola Field in Buffalo, 6-5, to split the series at two wins each.
Buffalo built an early 3-0 lead, boosted by back-to-back home runs by Mauro Gomez and Josh Thole. Luis Jiminez added a home run in the fifth inning, his team-leading 10th of the season. Jimenez also leads the International League with 44 RBIs.
Starting Bisons pitcher Dave Bush (5-4) got the win. In five innings, he allowed only two runs on five hits. Reliever Neil Wagner picked up his 13th save of the season.
The Bisons (28-20, second place in the IL North) go on the road for the next eight days, beginning today in Durham, N.C. against the Bulls.
