Bisons bounce Braves

The Bisons ended their three-game losing streak on Tuesday night using the big stick to get a 6-3 win at Coolray Field over the Gwinnett Braves.

After Gwinnett took a 3-1 lead in the second inning, the Herd brought out the long ball to tie the game and then take the lead.

After a lead off base hit from Jorge Padilla in the fourth inning, Valentino Pascucci struck a two-run bomb over the left field wall for his eighth homer of the year to tie the game at three.

Then with two men on in the fifth frame, Jorge Padilla knocked his first home run of the year as a Bison, after four long balls with Triple-A Las Vegas. The three-run homer gave the Bisons a 6-3 lead, which they would hold on for the final score.

Bisons starter Pat Misch got the win after losing his previous two starts, going eight innings and surrendering only three runs on 10 hits, to improve his record to 6-3.

The offense star of the game was the newcomer Jorge Padilla, playing in just his fourth game with Buffalo, he went 3-5 with two runs scored, three RBI, and the game-changing home run.

The Bisons look to keep on rolling tomorrow night in game three of the series from Coolray Field, with a 7 p.m. start time.

BISONS NOTES: Pat Misch picked up his first win since June 1…The home run for Pascucci was the 201st of his career…The three-hit night for Padilla was his first as a Bisons…Russ Adams entered the game for Andy Green in the second inning and went 1-3 with a walk and run scored.
