The big news for the Bisons Sunday was their 3-1 loss at Pawtucket in a game in which they allowed just two hits and saw outfielder Lucas Duda's hit streak end at 11 games. The big news to the Boston Red Sox, meanwhile, was an early exit from the game by veteran Carlos Delgado.
Delgado, signed to a minor-league deal in the wake of Kevin Youkilis' season-ending thumb injury, left the game due to stiffness in his back around his surgically repaired hip. He was 0 for 1 in the game. No word yet if Delgado plays in tonight's series finale. And the injury bears watching as the Torey Lovullo's PawSox hit town for a six-game, five-day series that starts with a doubleheader Saturday night at 5:30 in Coca-Cola Field.
The Bisons' nine-game homestand opens Wednesday night at 7 against Rochester.
