Tonight's 7:05 Bisons game against Lehigh Valley in Coca-Cola Field has been designated the "Team Gary Bisons Benefit Bash" in honor of injured Buffalo police officer Gary Sengbusch.
Proceeds of ticket sales and ballpark raffles will assist in the recovery of Sengbusch, who was critically injured by an alleged drunk driver on February 25. There will be an open party in the center field pavilion at 5 p.m. featuring a concert by Strictly Hip and there will be a postgame pyrotechnics show.
Raffle prizes include a 46-inch flat screen TV donated an autographed by Jay Leno, autographed jerseys from Derek Jeter and Carl Yastrzemski, an autographed goalie stick from Ryan Miller as well as other prizes from the Bisons and Mets.

On the field, Nick Evans will try to extend his hitting streak to 20 games after Wednesday's 5-for-5 performance pushed his run to 19, the longest current stretch in the minors. He's an incredible 38 for 74 during the streak. The Bisons and first-place IronPigs, managed by Hall of Famer Ryne Sandberg, have split the first two games of their series.
