Bisons break numerous records in 27-9 rout

Niagara Gazette — SYRACUSE — No, the Buffalo Bisons and Syracuse Chiefs did not decide to play football instead. They really did play baseball, and it was a one-sided rout that resulted in numerous new records set by Buffalo as the Bisons crushed the Syracuse Chiefs, 27-9.

Buffalo native Jim Negrych hit for the cycle — a single, double, triple and home run — and went 4-for-7. He is the first Bisons player to hit for the cycle since 2010.

Moises Sierra had six hits including a single, double and triple but missed out on hitting for the cycle without a home run. 

Luis Jimenez drove in eight runs while the Bisons set what the International League reported was a new modern-era record for offense with 27 runs on 29 hits. It is not, however, the most runs ever scored by the Herd. That still-standing record was set on July 26, 1902 when the Bisons trounced Providence 33-6.

Buffalo improved its record to 8-4 on the season and continues its road trip Friday opening a four-game series in Lehigh Valley, Pa., against the IronPigs.
