Bisons begin final homestand

And thus begins the final homestand of the season for the Buffalo Bisons. Although technically the Herd is the "visiting" team both tonight and tomorrow against the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Yankees. Scranton is playing the entire 2012 season on the road as a new stadium is built this summer. So the Yankees get to bat last.

Righty Chris Schwinden is scheduled to make his 17th start. He has posted a 2.15 earned run average since the All-Star break.

Scranton counters with former Bison Ramon Ortiz. He is 2-0  with a 2.89 ERA against the Herd this season. He started eight games with Buffalo in 2010 going 2-3 with a 3.94 ERA.

Tonight's lineups:

Fred Lewis -- RF
Josh Rodriguez -- SS
Lucas Duda -- LF
Zach Lutz -- DH
Adam Loewen -- 1B
Josh Satin -- 2B
Matt Tuiasosopo -- 3B
Matt den Dekker -- CF
Mike Nickeas -- C

Chris Dickerson -- LF
Corban Joseph -- 2B
Eduardo Nunez -- SS
Brandon Laird -- 1B
AUstin Romine -- C
Francisco Cervelli -- DH
Melky Mesa -- CF
Kosuke Fukudome -- RF
Ramior Pena -- 3B
