Bisons back at it against Red Wings

Welcome back to Coca-Cola Field, where the Buffalo Bisons look to continue their playoff push in today's afternoon game with Thruway rival Rochester.

The Herd took last night's opener of this three-game series, 7-6, in nine innings. Dillon Gee set the franchise single-season strikeouts record, but didn't factor in the decision.

The Bisons got the win when Mike Cervenak singled with two outs in the bottom of the ninth. Cervenak's hit scored Justin Turner with the winning run. Turner was the offensive star of the night for the Bisons, going 3 for 4 with a home run, two RBIs and two runs. Turner is hitting .311 this season with nine homers and 39 RBIs.

The Bisons remain three games behind Louisville in the race for the International League wild card. The Bats won in ridiculous fashion last night, getting a walk-off grand slam from Triple-A rookie catcher Devin Mesoraco to defeat Syracuse, 5-3.

Here's today's starting lineup from the Herd. 

Jesus Feliciano, RF

Justin Turner, 2B

Lucas Duda, LF

Nick Evans, 1B

Kirk Nieuwenhuis, CF

Mike Cervenak, 3B

Russ Adams, DH

Luis Hernandez, SS

J.R. House, C

Michael Antonini, P
