Out of '09, onto 2010
The Bisons 2009 season came to a close on Monday afternoon as the Herd fell to the Lehigh Valley IronPigs at Coca-Cola Park, 3-0.
The loss was the Herd’s 87th defeat of the season, their highest total since a 55-89 campaign in 1994. The Bisons finished in last place in the International League North Division for the first time in their now their 12th season since rejoining the league. It’s only the sixth time in the modern era Buffalo has finished the year with a losing record.
Jesus Feliciano was given the well deserved day off after appearing in a team-high 130 games. Even without playing on Monday, the Bisons MVP will lead the entire International League with 154 hits unless Scranton/Wilkes-Barre’s Austin Jackson (149) closes out league play on Monday night with a monster game.
