Bisons bounce Bats in series finale


Niagara Gazette — He has been working on his patience at the dish and said it's been nice to get a couple good pitches while he's continuing to fine tune his approach at the plate.

"I need to get myself into a good position to be able to see the ball better," he said. "I feel like right now I'm getting my body out of position so I'm not seeing and tracking the ball like I normally would. It will get there but sometimes it's frustrating when it's close and only one thing away."

Brown said that Langerhans has always brought power to any lineup he's batted in and that his hard work won't go unrewarded.

"Right now he's searching for some stuff with his swing, but he's been working on it really hard and it's nice to see him run into a ball like that (on the home run)," Brown said. "He's a veteran-type guy and he brings a lot to the clubhouse and plays good defense. He's a great asset for us to have."

Bisons second baseman Jim Negrych continues to swing one of the hottest bats in baseball, turning in a 2 for 4 performance with two RBIs, raising his batting average to .420 on the season. Anthony Gose and Eugenio Velez both had two-hit games as well for the Herd. 

The Bisons improved to 19-9 on the season and are in first place in the International League North division. They open up a four-game series with Norfolk today at 7:05 p.m.
