The Buffalo Bisons can't escape the rain on their road trip. The series opener for the Herd in Pawtucket today was postponed due to rain. The teams will play a doubleheader on Friday starting at 5:35 p.m. Both games will be scheduled for seven innings.
Ricky Romero will get his seventh start for the Herd in the opener. He is still looking for his first win as a Bison. He is 0-1 with five no-decisions.
Meanwhile, Andy LaRoche cleared waivers and was outrighted to the Bisons. In one game with the Toronto Blue Jays, the third baseman went 0 for 4 with a strikeout while starting at third base. With the Bisons, he hit .282, driving in 32 runs.
