Bisons jump on Bats early

TO SUM IT UP: The Bisons provided more than enough run support for a Herd staff that combined on a five hit, 4-0, shutout win over Louisville Friday night.  Chris Schwinden (2-1) stuckout five and tossed six innings of four-hit ball while earning the win. Justin Hampson and Manny Acosta held the Bats to just one hit over the final three innings.  Ruben Tejada and Kirk Nieuwenhuis collected five of Buffalo’s seven hits while driving in three of the four runs in the victory.

FAST FACTS: Ruben Tejada took his average to .301 with a 3-4 performance, including a solo-HR(3), the RBI adds to a Bisons-best 18RBI… Kirk Nieuwenhuis went 2-4 with 2RBI with a solo HR(5), the five homers and 11 doubles lead the Herd… Nieuwenhuis has been on base 28 of Buffalo’s 29 games, with hits in 24 games… Chris Schwinden (2-1) earned his first win at Coca-Cola Field, lowering his ERA to 2.00, while completing 6IP for the first time… The win is Buffalo’s third shutout of the season, two of which Schwinden has been the starter (Jenrry Mejia the other)… Nick Evans, 1-4, is 8 for his last 19AB and has reached base 14 times in the last six games…  Bisons pitching combined to strikeout a dozen Bats – without issuing a walk… The Bisons have 22 homeruns this season, 17 are solo shots… By taking the first two games of the series, it’s the first time the Bisons have won the first two games of any set this season… Before the game the Bisons announced John Lujan and Brian Sweeney will going the Herd.
