Niagara Gazette — The grounds crew was called to put the tarp over the field after Buffalo designated hitter Luis Jimenez struck out to end the bottom of the fifth. Ohlendorf finished allowing five hits and two earned runs while striking out three and issuing two walks. Germano struck out five and allowed no free passes, but gave up 11 hits and all seven runs (six earned).
Negrych led the Buffalo offense, going 2 for 2 with a double and a walk. Sierra was the only other Bison with multiple hits.
The Bisons (3-3) host Syracuse (5-1) in the final game of the series at 1:05 p.m. today.
NOTES: Newly-acquired Mauro Gomez, the former International League MVP claimed off waivers from the Boston Red Sox, started at first base for the Bisons. ... Negrych’s run in the bottom of the first was the first given up this season by Ohlendorf, who’s best known as the key cog in the New York Yankees’ trade of Randy Johnson to Arizona. ... Syracuse’s Eury Perez reached on an infield single in the fourth to extend his IL-best hit streak to 23 games.
