Bombs away, Brownie

Buffalo Bisons first baseman Jordan Brown hit three home runs today as the Herd defeated the Toledo Mud Hens, 6-2, in an exhibition game from Lakeland, FL.

Brown, 24, hit two solo home runs and a two-run shot for the Bisons, finishing the game 3-4 with three RBI. He also drew a walk as the Bisons evened their spring training record at 3-3-1.

Brown figures to be in the mix in Buffalo this season after a stellar campaign with Double-A Akron in 2007. He was the Eastern League Most Valuable Player, Rookie of the Year and mid-season and post season All-Star. His .333 (161-483) batting average led all Double-A hitters. He also had 36 doubles, 11 home runs, 76RBI, 63 walks and a .421 on-base percentage with the Aeros.

In 2006, Brown was named the Carolina League Most Valuable player after hitting .290 with 15 home runs and 87RBI with Single-A Kinston. He was Cleveland’s 4th round pick in the 2005 First-Year Player Draft.

OF Jason Cooper (2-3, 2 2B) and C Wyatt Toregas (3-4, RBI) also had solid offensive games on Monday.

On the mound, RHP Adam Miller started the game and allowed two runs on three hits in 3.0 innings (3K). Edward Mujica (2-0) earned his second spring win with Buffalo with 2.0 shutout innings of work (2H, 1K).
