After a record-setting April, the Buffalo Bisons return to Coca-Cola Field looking to create some home turf advantage when they host the Louisville Bats at 7 tonight. The game kicks off an eight-game homestand for the Herd. The Bisons are just 6-4 at home this season, but went 17-7 in April for the most wins in the first month of the season in the modern era.

Righty Claudio Vargas makes his fifth start for the Herd today. He has won his last three starts and as not allowed more than three earned runs in any of his outings this season.

In transaction news, the Toronto Blue Jays recalled righty Brad Lincoln. It's the pitcher's second stint with the Blue Jays. He was promoted April 25-29 and gave up two runs in 2.0 innings over two games. For Buffalo, he is 1-0 with a 3.72 ERA in six outings.

Tonight's Bison's lineup:

Jim Negrych -- 2B
Anthony Gose -- CF
Moises Sierra -- RF
Luis Jimenez -- 1B
Mauro Gomez -- DH
Josh Thole -- C
Ryan Langerhans -- LF
Eugenio Velez -- 3B
Ryan Goins -- SS
