AAA International League: Buffalo 7/7/1, Scranton 6/11/1

The Bisons had their first big offensive game of the season (the first of many, especially when Ruben Tejada gets there), with 7 hits and 7 walks. They trailed 6-2 after 5 innings, but 2 in the 6th, 1 in the 7th and 2 in the 8th led them to victory. Fernando Martinez (2), and Mike Cervanek (2) had multi hit games for the Bisons, while Josh Thole (0 for 4, BB, K, .000), Mike Hessman (0
for 3, run, 2 BBs, K, .000), Russ Adams (0 for 3, .167) and LUis Hernandez (0 for 3, run, BB, K, .000) took 0-fers.

RA Dickey was awful in his season debut, giving up 6 runs (4 earned) on 9 hits and 3 walks in just 4.2 innings, but the bullpen was outstanding, giving up just 2 hits and 3 walks in 4.1 innings,
allowing the offense the chance to come back. Kiko Calero picked up the win with 1.2 scoreless innings, Elmer Dessens picked up the save.
