Bisons return favor, 8-1 win

Buffalo Bisons (3-3)  8, Pawtucket Red Sox (3-3)  1
April 12, 2011

TO SUM IT UP: Buffalo had five straight hits while sending eight batters to the plate in the first inning, and plated 3 runs to take an early lead and never looked back…  The Bisons scored all eight runs in the first three innings and bolted to an eventual 8-1 win… Nick Evans and Zach Lutz both had home runs… Dillon Gee cruised over his 7IP over 99 pitches and earned his first win of the year, and evened his record

FAST FACTS: Zach Lutz’s last four hits are for extra bases, 3 doubles, 1 HR… The HR was the first for Lutz this season… Lucas Duda had his first hit since coming back from New York… Ruben Tejada has hit in 5 of the first 6 games this season, he’s reached base in all six games… Dale Thayer came in relief of Gee and faced the minimum over the final two frames… Evans, Lutz, and Russ Adams all had multi-hit nights.
