Bisons set to open homestand

It's Game Three of the four-game series between the Bisons and Rochester Red Wings tonight in Dunn Tire Park. The Bisons won both games over the weekend in Frontier Field and are gunning for their first five-game winning streak since April 28-May 2.

Buffalo is opening a six-game homestand heading into the all-star break. Tuesday is the annual Independence Eve postgame concert by the Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra. After an off day Wednesday, Buffalo hosts the Durham Bulls in a four-game set beginning Thursday night. The Herd enters tonight's contest with a three-game lead over Scranton/Wilkes-Barre and a four-game edge over Rochester in the International League North.

The Bisons went 4-1 on their road trip to Rochester and Scranton and a big reason was the work of the bullpen, which put together 15 2/3 scoreless innings. The pen, in fact, has allowed just one earned run over 38 1/3 innings the last 12 games. Currently holding scoreless outing streaks are relievers Matt Miller (12 games), Juan Lara (9), Mike Koplove (5) and Jensen Lewis (5).

Jeff Harris (4-5) is the starting pitcher for the Herd tonight. Adam Miller is then scheduled to come in to make his third relief outing since coming off the disabled list, throwing three innings or about 50 pitches. Here is the Buffalo lineup:

Hector Luna, ss

Luis Rivas, 2b

Joe Inglett, lf

Ryan Mulhern, 1b

Keith Ginter, dh

Andy Marte, 3b

Mike Rose, c

Brad Snyder, rf

Jonathan Van Every, cf
