Herd tries to go fourth against Wings ace

The Bisons look for their first four-game winning streak when they host the Rochester Red Wings today in sunny (but chilly) Coca-Cola Field. Dylan Owen (1-1), who homered in his last start Monday in Lehigh Valley, is on the mound for Herd against Rochester's Scott Diamond, who leads the International League with four wins and is second with a 1.07 ERA.

Andres Torres has returned to the Mets off his rehab assignment and should play Monday in Houston. Bobby Scales, still the IL's batting leader at .400, is back in the leadoff spot today replacing Torres. Scales is one of five Bisons riding season-high hit streaks; Valentino Pascucci leads the way at 12 games, Vinny Rottino is at 10, Scales is at six, while Josh Satin and Omar Quintanilla are at five.

Here's today's Buffalo lineup:

Bobby Scales, 2b
Vinny Rottino, lf
Valentino Pascucci, dh
Josh Satin, 1b
Matt Tuiasosopo, rf
Brad Eamus,  3b (making his season debut)
Raul Reyes, cf
Lucas May, c
Omar Quintanilla, ss
Dylan Owen, p
