Misch leads Herd to sweep of IronPigs

LEHIGH VALLEY -- Pat Misch delivered on the mound and at the plate for the Buffalo Bisons in Sunday's 7-1 win over Lehigh Valley before 9,702 at Coca-Cola Park. Buffalo won its third in a row and swept the two-game series against the IronPigs.

Misch cracked a two-run double highlighting a five-run fifth inning in what had been a scoreless game. Buffalo tacked on three more runs in the inning against starter Ryan Feierabend on a Fernando Perez single and sacrifice flies by Luis Figueroa and Valentino Pascucci.

Misch (6-6) allowed three hits over seven innings in his team-best ninth quality start, striking out five with two walks. Misch tied Chris Schwinden for the most Herd wins in 2011 and has 18 in his Buffalo career.

Former Met Aaron Heilman relieved Feierabend to start the sixth for the IronPigs. Heilman loaded the bases on Ruben Tejada and Dusty Ryan singles and a Perez walk before a two-run single by Figueroa.

Buffalo's Josh Satin extended his hitting streak to eight games with a fifth-inning double.

A day after returning from the disabled list, Fernando Martinez went 2 for 4 and scored a run.

Pete Orr's homer against reliever Brian Sweeney in the eighth broke the shutout.

The Herd's season-long, four-stop, 10-game roadtrip will continue tonight in Rochester (Radio 1520, 7 p.m.) with Schwinden (6-5, 3.46) scheduled to start.
