‘Pigs pull even with 7-5 win

TO SUM IT UP: Lehigh Valley got a pair of home runs from Erik Kratz and a two-run shot from Jeff Larish in a 7-5 victory over the Herd, snapping Buffalo’s three-game win streak… The Bisons closed the score to 6-5 as Fernando Martinez, who was activated off the disabled list before the game, clubbed a pinch-hit opposite field home run. Kratz followed with his second home run of the game to give the IronPigs some insurance…
