Bisons close out series against Indy

Chris Schwinden is back with the Herd and ready to make his schedueld start as the Buffalo Bisons close out their four-game series with the Indianapolis Indians at 1:05 today. Buffalo has lost two straight and is 1-2 agianst the Indians this season.

Schwinden's earned run average of 2.54 is the sixth-lowest in the International League. He was promoted to the New York Mets on Sunday but did not pitch, allowing him to keep his normal spot in the Bisons' starting rotation. In his last start for the Herd, a win over Gwinnett Thursday, Schwinden gave up two runs on six hits in six innings of work.

The Bisons are off on Wednesday and return to Coca-Cola Field on Thursday when Scranton/Wilkes-Barre comes to town. But the Bisons will be the away team on the scoreboard and in the batting order as Scranton is the "home" team. The Yankees are playing all their games on the road this year.

Today's Bison lineup:

Corey Wimberly -- CF
Fred Lewis -- LF
Josh Satin -- 1B
Valentino Pascucci -- RF
Matt Tuiasosopo -- 3B
Brad Emaus -- 2B
Jean Luc Blaquiere -- C
Omar Quintanilla -- SS
Chris Scwinden -- P
