Bisons go for fifth straight, Take Two

After Monday night's rainout against Rochester, the Bisons are back in Coca-Cola Field this evening trying to win five games in a row for the first time since 2010 as they open a series with the Bryce Harper-less Syracuse Chiefs.

Garrett Olson (0-1) is on the mound for the Bisons, who have won three straight series. Syracuse is last in the IL North but coming off a 12-4 win Monday against Charlotte that saw the Chiefs pile up 11 runs in the first three innings. 

Be sure to catch up on my story in today's paper on the versatile Vinny Rottino. He's back in his normal left field slot tonight but should have a chance at some point to catch here. Rottino, remember, enters tonight's game on an 11-game hitting streak while Val Pascucci is on a 13-gamer.

Here's the Herd lineup:

Bobby Scales,  2b (leads all of minor-league baseball with .413 average)
Vinny Rottino, lf 
Valentino Pascucci, rf
Josh Satin,  1b
Zach Lutz, 3b
Fred Lewis, cf
Lucas May, c
Omar Quintanilla, ss
Garrett Olson, p
