Bisons beat PawSox 8-4 in record-tying game


Niagara Gazette — Negrych says that lineup forces pitchers to attack every player, because every player can pose a threat to opposing pitchers when there are runners on base.

Once Buffalo got its lead back, the Bisons put the game out of reach with two home runs to right field. The first one, by Luis Jimenez in the bottom of the seventh inning, cleared the right field party patio and left the ballpark.

Velez's homer landed in the same party patio, bringing the final two runs home.

In between, the Bisons' pitching remained steady and kept Pawtucket from mounting any comeback. Claudio Vargas, after giving up four runs early, settled down and struck out four in six innings of work. Alex Hinshaw struck out three in his two innings on the mound, while Neil Wagner struck out all three batters he faced in the top of the ninth.

Buffalo improved to 15-5 on the season and travels to Rochester today to begin a four-game series against their Thruway rivals the Red Wings. Today's opening pitch is scheduled for 1:05 p.m.
