Herd losing streak reaches seven

The Buffalo Bisons need a win. Any kind of win. While manager Wally Backman said the club doesn't have it's back against the wall just yet, the Herd could use anything to stop the tailspin. After losing, 5-3, to Lousiville last night, the Bisons extended their losing streak to seven games. That's the longest losing streak since the team lost seven straight from from June 7 ro 13 in 2010.

The Herd hosts Louisville for a 1 p.m. game today. Lefty Garrett Olson takes the mound for his 16th start. He last start was a no-decision in Norfolk whe he gave up one earned run in five innings pitched.

Today's Bison's lineup:

Matt den Dekker -- CF
Jordany Valdespin -- 2B
Josh Satin -- 1B
Fred Lewis -- LF
Valentino Pascucci -- RF
Matt Tuiasosopo -- 3B
Josh Rodriguez -- SS
Rob Johnson -- C
Garrett Olson -- P
