Jacobs, bats never let up
Wearing a Buffalo uniform for the first time, first baseman Mike Jacobs homered and had three hits in an over-powering 10-3 victory over the Red Sox on Sunday afternoon at McCoy Stadium. Jesus Feliciano added a home run as the Bisons pounded out a season-high 19 hits.
The slugger quickly found a comfort level with his new teammates. He doubled home a run in the first inning and singled again in the second. In the sixth inning, Jacobs launched a mammoth home run to right field off of former Bisons’ hurler, Chad Paronto. That blast, which came right after Feliciano’s two-run homer, all but sealed the Herd’s second straight win.
Six different players had multi-hit performances, including four hits from Feliciano. The Bisons’ 2009 MVP scored three times and drove in three runs while raising his average to .368.
Mike Cervenak went 3-5 to extend his hit streak to 10 games. One of the hottest Bisons’ bats, Ruben Tejada was the only batter in the lineup who failed to get a hit, ending a five-game hit streak.
