Bisons close out homestand

Jeremy Hefner takes the mound for the Buffalo Bisons as they close out their homestand against the Syracuse Chiefs at Coca-Cola Field. It's the fifth start of the season for the righty who last pitched April 28 against Rochester. He went 7.2 innings allowing three runs (two earned) with five strikeouts. He took a no-decision in the Herd's 4-3 win.

Meanwhile left fielder Vinny Rottino had his contract selected by the Mets today. He was the only Bison to play in all 27 games, hitting .317 with eight doubles while driving in 14 runs. He left the Herd on a 14-game hitting streak. Fred Lewis takes his spot in the field tonight, hitting sixth.

The Mets optioned righty Chris Schwinden to the Herd.

Other roster moves including adding righty Elvin Ramierz from Double-A Binghamton, placing lefty Chuck James on the disabled list retroactive to May 2 and activating catcher Jean Luc Blaquiere.

Tonight's Bison lineup:

Bobby Scales -- 2B
Dustin Martin -- CF
Valentino Pascucci -- RF
Josh Satin -- 1B
Matt Tuiiasosopa -- 3B
Fred Lewis -- LF
