Hello from Coca-Cola Field. Richie Sexson might not be here today, but I am, and that will have to suffice.
The Bisons are getting set up for today's Buffalo Baseball Hall of Fame ceremony, honoring the aforementioned, and absent, Sexson, as well as the team's longtime broadcaster, Duke McGuire.
For more on the Sexson situation, be sure to check out the always-excellent work of Mike Harrington in his weekly inside baseball column.
And here's Harrington's profile of McGuire, a true legend of Buffalo baseball.
After the ceremony, the Herd will look to continue its walk-off magic. The Bisons have won the last two games over the Gwinnett Braves with walk-off hits, Saturday night when Jorge Padilla hit a pinch-hit sacrifice fly in the ninth inning.
Dillon Gee (8-5, 4.77 ERA) will be on the hill for the Herd.
Here's the Bisons' lineup for today's game:
Jesus Feliciano, CF
Luis Hernandez, SS
Jorge Padilla, LF
Valentino Pascucci, RF
Lucas Duda, 1B
Mike Cervenak, 3B
Andy Green, 2B
Jean Luc Blaquiere, C
Dillon Gee, P
