After throwing his scoreless inning in Wednesday's Triple-A All-Star Game, Pat Misch is on the mound tonight for the Bisons in the second game of their series against the Gwinnett Braves.
Misch (9-3) will be trying to become the third pitcher in the International League this season to get to 10 wins. His opponent is 23-year-old lefty Scott Diamond, a former Binghamton University pitcher making his Triple-A debut after getting promoted from Double-A Mississippi.
The Bisons (46-45) have dropped two in a row and five of their last seven to fall a season-high 7 1/2 games out of first place in the IL North. They are 4 1/2 behind Syracuse in the race for the wild card.
7:35 update: Infielder Justin Turner is not in the lineup tonight and ESPNNY.com is reporting he is en route to San Francisco to join the Mets in case Jose Reyes (finally) goes on the DL.
