Bisons split with Chiefs
The Herd and Chiefs split a doubleheader Friday night for the second day in a row at Coca-Cola Field. The Bisons slugged their way to a 7-2 game one win but missed some opportunities in game two as Syracuse came back to take the nightcap, 2-1.
Buffalo hits the road for a nine-game road trip and returns to Coca-Cola Field for the final four home games of the season on August 30.
