Yanks rally for win, take series
Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Yankees (5-3) 5, Buffalo Bisons (4-5) 3
April 15, 2011
TO SUM IT UP: The Yankees rallied for three runs in the eighth against the Bisons bullpen and came from behind to win over Buffalo 5-3 and earn a series victory… Dan Brewer provided the go-ahead 2-run triple and insured the win, scoring on a wild pitch… Buffalo trailed 2-1 in the sixth when Russ Adams’ delivered a go-ahead 2-run double…
FAST FACTS: Kirk Nieuwenhuis leadoff single in the sixth extended his hit streak to five games (6-17)… Lucas Duda has a four game hitting streak (4-14)… Justin Turner went 6-11 in the series… Prior to Friday’s game, the Bisons placed Fernando Martinez on the disabled list with a right hamstring strain. That cleared roster room for Luis Hernandez, who was activated and pinch ran in the ninth inning… The Bisons were 8-4 in their last 12 games against the Yankees at PNC Field before Friday’s loss…Buffalo did not have a home run in the three-game series.
