Fernando Martinez evens Bisons in 9th

Fmart1.jpgThe Buffalo Bisons, Triple-A affiliate of the New York Mets, played to a 4-4 tie against the New Orleans Zephyrs (Marlins) on Tuesday afternoon from Jupiter, FL.

Bisons outfielder Jesus Feliciano went 2-3 with a pair of doubles and two runs scored. Outfielder Fernando Martinez’s (pictured right) RBI-single in the ninth inning helped the Bisons pull even with the Zephyrs.

On the mound, RHP Kyle Snyder threw three scoreless innings while Valerio de los Santos and Connor Robertson each chipped in an inning of scoreless relief.

Following Wednesday’s camp day, the Bisons return to the field, facing Memphis (St. Louis), on Thursday afternoon.
