Jonathon Niese pitched a beauty tonight for Buffalo according to the teams site.
The Buffalo Bisons, Triple-A affiliate of the New York Mets, defeated the Memphis Redbirds (Cardinals), 6-0, on Wednesday afternoon from Jupiter, FL.
The Bisons will conclude their spring exhibition schedule on Tuesday against Memphis at Port St. Lucie, FL.
LHP Jonathon Niese combined with three relievers on the shutout. Niese worked the first six innings while RHP Kyle Snyder, RHP Eddie Kunz and LHP Connor Robertson all chipped in an inning of relief.
OF Fernando Martinez, INF Rob Mackowiak and OF Cory Sullivan all had two hits and drove in a run for Buffalo. OF Jason Cooper added two hits in the win.
It’s going to be fun following the Bisons this season, now that it will feature some of our top prospects in Niese and F-Mart.
We will have a full time Bisons beat writer blogging for us straight from Buffalo once their regular season kicks off.
