Bisons' April finale is a matinee on MLB Network

By Mike Harrington

ROCHESTER -- The Bisons have their second nationally televised morning game of the season today in Frontier Field, an 11:30 start against the Rochester Red Wings that you can watch on MLB Network. The broadcast will be handled by the Rochester crew with the play-by-play done by veteran Josh Whetzel, who also does the radio calls for University at Buffalo basketball during the winter.

The Bisons have dropped two of the first three games in this series, including last night's 4-3 defeat that saw them blow a 3-1 lead. The Bisons are 16-7 overall but just 4-3 against Rochester. Oddly enough, this is the last time they'll play the Red Wings until July 3 -- and the last time they'll be in this always-relaxing downtown park until Aug. 30-31.

Boo to the IL schedule for that. NO GAMES in Rochester all summer? That's just plain terrible.

Veteran Dave Bush (2-1, 1.65 starts today for Buffalo against Red Wings left Andrew Albers (0-0, 4.58). It's the final game of April and the Bisons have already clinched their best record in the season's first month of their modern era.

Here's today's Bisons lineup:

Mike McCoy, lf
Anthony Gose, cf
Moises Sierra, rf
Luis Jimenz, dh
Mauro Gomez, 1b
Andy LaRoche, 3b
Josh Thole, c
Lance Zawadski, 2b
Ryan Goins, ss
