Bisons drop third straight


Niagara Gazette — The Bisons finally broke through in the ninth, though it proved to be too little, too late. With reliever Ryan Buchter pitching Mauro Gomez led off with a 12-pitch strikeout in an at bat that started 0-2. Jimenez took the next pitch to center for a single, followed by a six-pitch Sierra strike out.

Nanita walked on four pitches, and Ochinko took a free base after a seven-pitch battle. Cole McCurry came in to close it out, but Ryan Goins singled to right on his first pitch, scoring Jimenez and Nanita. Eugenio Velez drew a seven-pitch walk to reload the bases, but McCoy flew out to center to end the game. McCurry earned his second save of the season.

Gwinnett took the four-game series, winning the final three games. The Bisons, once 10 games over .500, now sit even on the season.

"We're very disappointed," Brown said. "You can sit around and make excuses all you want about movement or injuries, but these guys have been together since spring training and have played very well together. We've hit a lull."

The Bisons now host Durham for another four-gamer, starting at 7:05 tonight.
