Bisons go to Schwinden in hopes of ending skid

It's game two of a four game series between the Bisons and the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Yankees at Coca-Cola Field today. The Herd are currently in the middle of an eight-game home stand which they have started off 1-4.

In today's afternoon game All Star pitcher Chris Schwinden (6-5, 3.52) will get the start for Buffalo and he will face Lance Pendleton (3-3, 2.95). 

An update for the Yankees fans, pitcher Ivan Nova was working with the pitching staff before batting practice today. He threw for about 15 minutes with a Scranton coach carefully watching every throw.

Nova was placed on the 7-Day DL last Wednesday because of an ankle injury. He pitched a simulated game yesterday and has been experiencing pain in his ankle since getting hit by a line drive in a previous start.
