Herd looks for first May win

BISONS Ballpark

By Amy Moritz


The Buffalo Bisons are still looking for that winning touch at home. The Herd is just 6-5 at Coca-Cola Field after last night's 4-1 loss to Louisville. The teams meet at 7 tonight in the second of the four-game series.

Edgar Gonzalez (1-0, 6.75 ERA) makes his fourth start for the Herd. He picked up his first win of the year last Sunday, giving up three runs in 5 1/3 innings in Rochester. He has walked just two batters in 14 2/3 innings.

This afternoon, the Bisons added righty Jeremy Jeffress to the roster. Jeffrees was promoted from Single-A Dunedin, taking the spot available after Brad Lincoln was recalled to the Toronto Blue Jays yesterday. The 25-year-old Jeffress pitched one game with the Blue Jays this year and was designated for assignment on April 6. In Dunedin, Jeffress has allowed just one hit over five innings.

Tonight's Bison's lineup:

Jim Negrych -- 2B
Anthony Gose -- CF
Moises Sierra -- RF
Luis Jimenez -- DH
Mauro Gomez -- 1B
Josh Thole -- C
Andy LaRoche -- 3B
Ryan Langerhans -- LF
Mike McCoy -- SS
