Romero back to the mound

by Amy Moritz

Ricky Romero will look build momentum tonight as he makes his eighth start for the Buffalo Bisons in tonight's game against Gwinnett at Coca-Cola Field.

Romero had his first quality start of the season on June 14 in Pawtucket, pitching six innings of shutout ball while giving up two hits, two walks with three strikeouts. He took a no-decision as the Herd dropped a 1-0 game to the PawSox.

LaRoche gets a rest: Andy LaRoche made his first start of the season at second base Tuesday night, but that lasted only an inning and a half. LaRoche experienced some tightness in his arm after making a throw in the top of the second inning. He is being evaluated and manager Marty Brown said he is day to day.

Reyes shuffling to Buffalo: Four-time All-Star Jose Reyes will be bringing his rehabilitation show to Buffalo on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Reyes has been out of the Toronto Blue Jays lineup after injurying his ankle while sliding into second base on April 12. Check out Mike Harrington's post for more details on the Reyes rehab.

Tonight's Bison Lineup:
Mike McCoy -- 2B
Anthony Gose -- CF
Mauro Gomez -- DH
Moises Sierra -- RF
Jim Negrych -- 3B
Ricardo Nanita -- LF
Sean Ochinko -- 1B
Ryan Goins -- SS
MIke Nickeas -- C
