TODAY’S GAME: This afternoon, the Buffalo Bisons face the Pawtucket Red Sox in the third game of a four-game series at Coca-Cola Field (1:05 p.m.). The Herd has taken the first two games of the series, 2-1 and 3-0. The Bisons have now won four of their last five games. After tomorrow’s series finale, Buffalo heads to Ohio for an eight-game trip to Toledo and Columbus.
vs. THE RED SOX: The Bisons have split the first 12 games of their season series with the Red Sox. The Herd has won the last four games against the PawSox, having only allowed two total runs in the recent wins. Buffalo swept a two-game set in Pawtucket, July 9-10 (3-1, 1-0) and leads 2-0 in this four-game series (2-1, 3-0). Last night, the Bisons notched their 100th win against Pawtucket since rejoining the International League in 1998 (100-88)
ON BROADWAY: RHP Lance Broadway was victorious his last time out. The veteran allowed just three runs in seven innings in a 6-3 victory in Indianapolis on Saturday. The last time he pitched at home, Broadway delivered one of the season’s top pitching performances. The righty pitched a nine-inning complete-game on July 8 against Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, allowing just one 9th-inning run on seven hits. Broadway is 2-1 with a 3.27ERA in his last 3 starts.
NOTHING TRIVIAL: LHP Adam Pettyjohn had a great Herd debut last night, collecting the victory with three shutout innings of relief. Nothing new for the southpaw as he led the International League in wins a season ago. Pettyjohn went 15-6 in 28 starts for IL West Division Champion Louisville -a win total that tied a Bats’ franchise record.
THE HITS KEEP COMING: OF Jesus Feliciano enters today’s game on a six-game hit streak, averaging .360 (9-25) since July 24. The outfielder has been great this month, with a .333 (33-99) average in 25 games. He is now 5th in the league in batting (.312) and 4th in the IL in total hits (108).
LIGHTS OUT: RHP Adam Bostick had dominating stuff last night, striking out four batters in two shutout innings of relief. It was the first professional save of Bostick’s nine-year career. He has struck out nine batters in his last two outings (5.0IP) and 23 batters in his 22.0 innings pitched this year.
