Two home games left for Herd

The Bisons meet the Syracuse Chiefs in the penultimate home game of the season at Coca-Cola Field (Don't know what that means? Follow Marv Levy's advice to Thurman Thomas: Look it up). Buffalo is just 4-10 against the Chiefs this season and 10-20 vs. its Thruway rivals the last two seasons.

Oddly enough, a Syracuse win tonight would even the all-time series between the teams since the return to the IL in 1998 at 112-112. Mark Cohoon (4-9) will start for the Bisons and try to prevent that. Leadoff man Jordany Valdespin has an eight-game hitting streak and is batting .406 in that span.

Outfielder Jesus Feliciano has 369 career hits, nine shy of equaling Bill Selby's modern era record with six games left. DH Val Pascucci is tied for the IL RBI lead with 91. Here's the Herd lineup tonight:

Jordany Valdespin, ss
Mike Baxter, lf
Josh Satin, 3b
Valentino Pascucci, 1b
Luis Hernandez, 2b
Jesus Feliciano, cf
Raul Reyes, rf
Raul Chavez, c
Mark Cohoon, p
