Herd ready for two more with Gwinnett

It's an overcast, but warm day here at Coca-Cola Field, where the Buffalo Bisons are set to play their second straight doubleheader against the Gwinnett Braves.

The Bisons haven't played back-to-back twinbills since Aug. 20-21, 2009 against Syracuse, splitting each time, as Buffalo and Gwinnett did yesterday.

Splitting at home is something the Herd is accustomed to this season. Buffalo is 14-14 on the home field, and has split all four series. Buffalo starts the day 9.5 games behind Lehigh Valley in the International League, so if it wants to get back in the race, a sweep today would be a good place to start.

Starting for the Bisons in the opener will be:

Luis Figueroa, SS

Michael Fisher, 3B

Lucas Duda, RF

Valentino Pascucci, 1B

Jason Botts, LF

Jesus Feliciano, CF

Mike Nickeas, C

Luis Hernandez, 2B

Brian Sweeney, P

We'll be back on the blog with some details from the first game and the starting lineup for the second later this afternoon, so check back.
