It's a beautiful day for a doubleheader. At least when it warms up a bit this afternoon.
The Buffalo Bisons and Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders will play two seven-inning games start at noon at Coca-Cola Field. The twinbill makes up one of the games from earlier in the homestand when wet grounds and snow forced postponements.
Ricky Romero gets the start in the first game making his second start of the season. Romero allowed three runs in four innings of a no-decision last week in Lehigh Valley. Last year the lefty won five games for the Herd, striking out 81 batters in 22 starts.
Kyle Drabek will start the second game. He is 1-0 in two starts, picking up his first win April 11 against Pawtucket where he gave up three runs on seven hits with five strikeouts in five innings of work.
Anthoy Gose is expected to be promoted by the Toronto Blue Jays today for their doubleheader in Minnesota. The expectation is that he will play the second game and be returned to the Bisons.
The starting lineup for the Bisons in Game 1:
Chris Getz -- 2B
Steve Tolleson -- 3B
Juan Francisco -- DH
Dan Johnson -- 1B
Matt Tuiasosopo -- LF
Kevin Pillar -- CF
Ricardo Nanita -- RF
Kevin Nolan -- SS
Mike Nickeas -- C
