Bisons blast Columbus

COLUMBUS, Ohio -- It's rare when the Buffalo Bisons score in double figures. It's even rarer when they do it twice in succession.

The Herd hammered the Columbus Clippers a second straight time Sunday, following up Saturday's 15-3 thrashing with a 10-2 victory before 9,191 at Huntington Park.

Jesus Feliciano (solo shot in the second), Zach Lutz (two on in the third) and International League RBI leader Valentino Pascucci (one on in the fifth) all homered for Buffalo.

The Bisons were helped by four Columbus errors as they scored their 10 runs with only nine hits and left just four runners on base. Losing pitcher Corey Kluber and two relievers combined for 10 strikeouts.

Pascucci also had a run-producing single in the seventh, giving him 90 RBIs for the season.

Luis Figueroa, Lutz and Pascucci combined for six of the Buffalo hits with two apiece. Josh Satin of the Herd went 0 for 5, ending his hitting streak at eight games.

Buffalo starter Dylan Owen evened his record at 6-6 after going 0-1 in his previous three starts. Owen pitched seven strong innings, allowing four hits and one walk and striking out six.

The teams will meet against tonight (7:05, Radio 1520 AM) with Miguel Batista (2-0, 3.92) due to start for the Bisons against Jeanmar Gomez (10-6, 2.39).
