Waiting on the Herd

The snow continued to melt off the Dunn Tire Park playing surface today as we all anticipate the Bisons official arrival in a few weeks.  There is a MASSIVE snow drift between the dugouts behind home plate so the sun has a lot of work to do to get rid of all the snow in the park but it has done a great job so far.  Down south the Bisons had much better playing conditions but couldn’t find enough fire power for a win.

Buffalo was defeated by the Round Rock Express (Astros), 8-2, Tuesday afternoon from Winter Haven, FL. The Herd is now 2-2 after the first four games of their 12-game spring exhibition schedule.

Solo home runs from outfielder Nathan Panther and infielder Wes Hodges accounted for both the Bisons runs. Panther also singled (2-3) as he had two of the Bisons’ five hits in the game.

With Cleveland having a scheduled off day, RHP Fausto Carmona pitched for the Herd. Cleveland’s 19-game winner from last season allowed three unearned runs on six hits in five innings of work. He also stuck out five.
