Bisons return home

The Buffalo Bisons hope to get a fresh start tonight when they host the Louisville Bats at Coca-Cola Field. The Herd went 1-7 on its latest road trip, dropping the last six. That's on the heels of a 2-6 home stand, making the Bisons just 3-13 in their last 16 games. On the road trip, the Herd had 11 transactions, ending with the addition of Jordany Valdespin today.

Josh Satin has a five-game hit streak. Since June 21 he has hit .647 (11-17) and has 19 multi-hit games this season.

Righty Jeurys Familia (5-4, 5.00 ERA) takes the mound today. He last outing was a loss in Norfolk, where he gave up five earned runs in 2 2/3 innings pitched. 

Tonight's Bison lineup:

Matt den Dekker -- CF
Jordany Valdespin -- 2B
Josh Satin -- 1B
Fred Lewis -- LF
Matt Tuiasosopo -- 3B
Raul Reyes -- RF
Josh Rodriguez -- SS
Lucas May -- C
Jeurys Familia -- P
