One more for road for Herd vs. Yankees

It's been a pretty entertaining three games for the Bisons and Yankees so far in Coca-Cola Field, Scranton's "home" for the weekend. The Bisons survived to win Saturday, 8-7, as closer Fernando Cabrera got out of a ninth-inning jam -- including a key strikeout of Jack Cust, Friday's walk-off hero.

Some quick numbers from the series so far:

Runs: 21-17, Buffalo
Hits: 32-29, Buffalo

RISP at bats: Buffalo 10-33, Scranton 7-25
LOB: Buffalo 23, Scranton 17

Average time: 3 hours, 15 minutes.

Nice pitching matchup Sunday as Chris Schwinden goes for the Herd against Scranton veteran Ramon Ortiz,   who made eight starts for the Bisons two years ago and went 15-9 for the 2002 World Series champion Anaheim Angels.
