Schwinden, winner of three straight, starts vs. Lehigh

After their 6-0 win over the Lehigh Valley IronPigs Tuesday, the Bisons trot out a red-hot righty tonight: pitcher Chris Schwinden, who has won his last three games. Schwinden is 6-4 on the year, but he has a 2.14 earned-run average. He's only given up two runs in his last three outings.

Buffalo (60-64) is tied for fifth in the IL North. Lehigh Valley is 66-59, good for third in the division (3.5 games back). Buffalo holds a 6-4 lead in head-to-head matchups this year.

Yesterday, outfielder Matt den Dekker drilled a grand-slam, his second in nine days. 

Schwinden threw the first pitch, a strike, at 7:05 p.m.
