Herd's chances slipping

The Buffalo Bisons have fallen 3.5 games back in the International League Wild Card race after last night's loss to Syracuse. The Herd has just eight games left, Columbus seven games, and while mathematically still alive, the possibilities for postseason keep slipping away.

They will try to make up some ground tonight (7:05 p.m., Radio 1520) finishing their series with the Syracuse Chiefs in Coca-Cola Field. Fernando Nieve (2-0, 5.40) gets the start for the Herd.

Tonight's starting lineup:

Jesus Feliciano -- RF
Justin Turner -- SS
Lucas Duda -- LF
Nick Evans -- 1B
Russ Adams -- 2B
Mike Cervenak -- 3B
Kirk Nieuwenhuis -- CF
Mike Nickeas -- C
Fernando Nieve -- P
