Bisons face top prospect Teheran

The Buffalo Bisons are sticking with the same lineup tonight that produced 14 runs in defeating the Gwinnett Braves on Wednesday in the second game of a four-game set.

Getting another 14 tonight, however, will be a tall order. The Herd will face Braves right-hander Julio Teheran (3-1, 2.48 ERA), the 2011 International League Pitcher of the Year. As our own Mike Harrington pointed out earlier today, Teheran is baseball's No. 3 prospect, according to MLB.com.

The Bisons counter with right-hander Chris Schwinden, who's making his third home start. The Herd's lineup:

CF Corey Wimberly
LF Fred Lewis
RF Vinny Rottino
1B Valentino Pascucci
3B Matt Tuiasosopo
2B Brad Emaus
SS Omar Quintanilla
C Jean Luc Blaquiere
P Schwinden
