What a day, what a win
You can’t draw up a Home Opener much better than what played out at Coca-Cola Field for Home Game #1 of the 2010 season.
Great pitching, check! Clutch hitting, check! Throw in great weather and a great crowd and it was a perfect start to the baseball season in Downtown Buffalo.
UPDATE: Sights and Sounds from Buffalo’s home opener:
R.A. Dickey tossed a complete game and Chris Carter drove in four as the Bisons defeated the Pawtucket Red Sox, 8-2, on a gorgeous Wednesday afternoon in front of 13,323 Opening Day fans.
Carter finished the game a home run away from the cycle, with four hits, two doubles and a triple. He drove in four, scored three times and proved to be too much for his former teammates to handle.
The Bisons are now 3-1 against Pawtucket in home openers and 4-0 when their Home Opener falls on April 14. The first ever game at Coca-Cola Field was played on April 14, 1988 – a 1-0 win over Denver.
