Bisons fall again in Toledo

The Buffalo Bisons' woes against the Toledo Mud Hens here at Fifth Third Field continued Wednesday night.

Danny Worth's grand slam against reliever Gustavo Chacin proved to be the difference as the Mud Hens rallied for a 7-6 victory before 7,267. It was Buffalo's 10 straight loss in Toledo where they have not won since May 28, 2008.

The Bisons owned a 5-3 lead thanks to a two-run homer by Raul Reyes in the sixth, but Buffalo starter Chris Schwinden (7-7) immediately got into trouble in the bottom of the inning. Scott Thorman led off with a single and Andy Ciriaco was hit by a pitch. Argenis Diaz beat out a bunt single to fill the bases and one out later Worth unloaded against Chacin.

Buffalo got a run back in the seventh on an RBI single by Joshua Satin, but reliever David Purcey came on to retired Jesus Feliciano on a popup to end the threat.

Luis Figueroa grounded into a double play to end a Herd threat in the eighth, and Toledo closer Enrique Gonzalez set the Bisons down in order in the ninth for his 11th save.

Feliciano's two-run double highlighted a three-run first inning for the Bisons, but the Mud Hens wiped that out with three runs in the second, two on a home run by Max St. Pierre.

Bisons catcher Mike Nickeas was recalled by the New York Mets. He was batting .214 in 60 games with the Bisons.

Pat Cohoon (4-8, 6.05) gets the start for the Bisons tonight (Radio 1520, 7 p.m.) against Ramon Garcia (0-3, 3.86).
