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. He was pretty efficient with his pitchers and threw 66% strikes. He could have come out for the 7th inning if needed (just 92 pitches), […]

Buffalo Bisons 1 – Durham Bulls 2 A good pitchers duel down in Durham. All of the runs in the game came on just two swings of the bat. Dylan Owen got another start and pitched very well. He cruised through the first two innings, but it was a double and then two-run home run […]

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, […]

Mike Pelfrey has not exactly been consistent over the past one and a half seasons, but more often than not, when Pelfrey is locked in and pitching well, 60 feet, 6 inches away is a veteran backstop calling the game. Pelfrey has always been a pitcher that has trouble stopping the bleeding once the going […]

Buffalo Bisons 3 | Norfolk Tides 11 Talk about a throw away season. Josh Stinson has been just downright awful all year long and tonight was no different. He gave up seven runs in three innings tonight and that is actually his longest outing in his last three starts. Those three starts have lasted 1.1, […]

Buffalo Bisons 0 Norfolk Tide 9 This was very close to being a great start for Mark Cohoon, and considering the results of his last few starts, this game has to be considered a success. The only real trouble that Cohoon faced the whole game was in the 4th inning. His command fell apart in […]

Buffalo Bisons 7 – Norfolk Tides 4 A mixed bag tonight for Chris Schwinden. In a common theme to his starts lately, he began the game off pitching very poorly. He gave up a run on four hits and two walks over the first two innings and threw a lot of pitches. A Michael Fisher […]

Buffalo Bisons (OFF) Binghamton Mets | 3 Richmond Flying Squirrels 5 Brandon Moore had issues with his control today and suffered as a result. Most of the walks he allowed came in the 1st inning, but he wasn’t commanding the ball particularly well even after that. After letting two runs score in the 1st inning […]

Buffalo Bisons 3 Columbus Clippers 7 This game was so close to finally being a very good start for Pat Misch. He was cruising through the game, having faced just two batters over the minimum through five, and then horror struck in the 6th inning. He had given up a run on a single and […]
