Bisons rally back, win 7-6
The Bisons offense broke through for the first time in 2010, erasing a 6-2 deficit in a 7-6 win over the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Yankees. Jason Pridie’s two-run single in the eighth inning made the Herd a winner for the first time this year.
Buffalo’s high-powered offense came through against the Yankee bullpen. Chris Carter cut the four-run deficit in half in the sixth inning when he tripled home Fernando Martinez and Mike Hessman. An inning later, the lead was down to one when reliever Royce Ring uncorked a wild pitch with Luis Hernandez on third base.
The Bisons then capped the rally with two more runs in the eighth. Carter led off the inning with a walk and Mike Cervenak got himself a board with one of his two hits on the night. Two batters later, Pridie pulled a pitch through the right side of the infield to plate both the game-tying and go-ahead runs.
Ike Davis continued his torrid start with a long home run to centerfield. Davis has reached base in six of his first nine Triple-A plate appearances. Davis is 4-7 with two doubles, a home run and two walks this season.
