Lucky 13 for Bisons win
FINAL SCORE: Buffalo 3, Syracuse 2
TO SUM IT UP: Bisons (1-1) and Chiefs (1-1) played extra frames tied at 2, until Matt Chico delivered a bases-loaded wild-pitch that scored Jason Pridie and gave Buffalo a 3-2 win… Jenrry Mejia spun six shutout to set the table for a tight affair on Friday night… Mejia punched out eight over his 88 pitches… The Herd’s bullpen tossed 5-striaght combined scoreless innings to help set the win.
