Buffalo Bisons 1 – Durham Bulls 4 Jack Egbert is finally where he should be in the organization and got the results that are to be expected from him against much more experienced hitters who he cannot fool with his junkerball repertoire.

Buffalo Bisons 3 – Durham Bulls 9 Well, Mark Cohoon looked very unimpressive yet again today to say the least. He was sitting 86 mph with his fastball and had the occasional 87 and 88 mph one, but wasn’t getting much more than that and while he didn’t walk anybody his command was way off. […]

Buffalo Bisons 9 – Durham Bulls 1 Chris Schwinden worked with a lead the whole game and pitched exactly how any manager wants a pitcher in that position to pitch.

Buffalo Bisons 16 – Norfolk Tides 2 This offense outburst came out of nowhere. The Bisons got off to an 11-0 lead before Norfolk even got on the scoreboard. The amazing part is how much scoring they did with two outs. Val Pascuccci broke the ice with a two-run home run in the 1st inning, […]
