5/19 Minor League Report – FERNANDO!!!
Buffalo 3, Pawtucket 4
Fernando Martinez hit a pair of homers off Clay Buchholz today, and that should’ve powered the Bisons to victory, and would’ve, if not for the Human Gas Can from Mexico (Carlos Muniz), who gave up a pair in the 8th inning to blow the game. Argenis Reyes also had a multi hit game for the Bisons, who were just 2 for 8 with RISP and left 8 on base. Cory Sullivan (0 for 4, BB, K, .202), Mike Lamb (0 for 4, .158) and Jon Malo (0 for 3, BB, K, .174) took 0-fers.
Brandon Knight started and went the first 6, allowing 2 runs on 7 hits, and was in line for the win before Muniz blew it.
