Negrych draws leadoff slot in batting order for Bisons' opener

By Mike Harrington

Manager Marty Brown named Justin Germano his Opening Day starter yesterday and has set his batting order today for Thursday's 2:05 game against Rochester. Former St. Francis star Jim Negrych, the first Western New York native to start for the Bisons since Dave Hollins in 2001, has drawn the assignment as the leadoff man in the order.

Negrych will be followed by standout Toronto outfield prospects Anthony Gose and Moises Sierra. Cleanup man Luis Jimenez thrilled a sellout crowd here last July with moonshots to right field during the Triple-A All-Star Home Run Derby.

The complete lineup:

Jim Negrych, 2b
Anthony Gose, cf
Moises Sierra, rf
Luis Jimenez, 1b
Andy LaRoche, 3b
Josh Thole, c
Ryan Langerhans, lf
Eugenio Velez, dh
Ryan Goins, ss
