Bisons fall at Toledo on homer

TOLEDO -- The Buffalo Bisons road woes at Toledo continued Saturday night when they fell to the Mud Hens, 3-2, on a walk-off homer.

The game was tied at 2 in the ninth when the Bisons replaced reliever Pedro Beato with Fernando Cabrera. Toledo's Brent Dlugach, on a 1-1 pitch leading off the inning, took Cabrera over the center field fence for the winner.

The Bisons are finding life on the road hard in Toledo.

The Bisons have now dropped 13 of their last 14 games at Fifth Third Field. The Bisons fell, 5-2, Friday night in the opening game of the series and their eight-game road trip. The Bisons, who will also visit Columbus on June 5-8, are 14-13 in road games.

The Herd was swept by the Mud Hens at their home in both 2009 and 2010 and won just one of four games there last year. Toledo visits Coca-Cola Field for a series July 16-19.

The Bisons trailed 2-1 in the seventh inning when they tied the game on a Toledo error. Buffalo's Oswaldo Navarro and Michael Fisher singled with no outs to put runners on first and third. Corey Wimberly reached on the error by shortstop Brent Dlugach, with Navarro scoring from third. Fred Lewis then walked to load the bases but a bigger rally was halted by Mud Hens reliever Jose Ortega. He struck out Valentino Pascucci and Josh Satin swinging then Matt Tuiasosopo looking to end the threat.

The Herd's Garrett Olson, who made his 11th start, went six complete innings and allowed two runs on three hits with five walks.

The Bisons play Toledo again today with Buffalo's Matt Harvey (5-1, 3.94) going against Adam Wilk (2-4, 3.35).
