Bisons roll past Tides, 5-3

The Mets gave the Herd another big bat by signing veteran slugger Val Pascucci. The veteran homered in his third at-bat with the Bisons to help his new team to a 5-3 victory over Norfolk.

Not to be outdone, Mike Hessman also went deep in the Herd’s third consecutive victory.

Meanwhile on the mound it was just another eight innings of work for R.A. Dickey. The knuckleballer did give up three runs in the fifth inning, but all of them were unearned on a two-out error from Alex Cintron. Dickey retired the final seven batters he faced to improve to 4-2 on the season.

Dickey has now pitched eight innings or more in six of his last seven starts.

Elmer Dessens polished off the win for his fifth save of the season.
