Nelson throwing out first pitch tonight at Bisons game

Bills receiver David Nelson will try and match teammate Fred Jackson's strike when he throws out the first pitch tonight before the Buffalo Bisons take on the Gwinnett Braves.

The Herd, which dropped the opener of a 16-game homestand Tuesday, made a roster move this afternoon, activating left-handed pitcher Chuck James from the disabled list and sending righty Jeff Stevens to Single-A Brooklyn.

The Bisons' lineup for tonight's 7 p.m. first pitch looks like this:

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