Morning Pitch: Bisons and Scranton close out series Sunday afternoon

The Buffalo Bisons and the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders end their series Sunday afternoon at Coca-Cola Field. Here's what you need to know:

Game time: 1:05 p.m. (Gates at noon)

Promotion: Princesses Day. Princesses will be stationed throughout the concourse to greet fans until the seventh inning. It's also a Kids Club Sunday and kids can run the bases after the game.

Run Jimmy Run: At 10 a.m. the fifth annual Run Jimmy Run 5K and 1-mile walk will take place at Coca-Cola Field, beginning at the statue of former Mayor Jimmy Griffin. Race-day registration is $40 (proceeds go to the Alzheimer's Association of WNY) and includes a game ticket. Both the run and walk course end at the edge of the outfield and participants can walk the field and get their picture taken at home plate.

Weather: Sunshine and clouds mixed. A stray shower or thunderstorm is possible, so says High 77.

Probables: The Bisons are expected to start lefty Brett Oberholtzer while Scranton will counter with righty Domingo German.

Last game: Despite a good outing from Luis Santos, the Bisons dropped their 11th straight to Scranton, 2-1, at Coca-Cola Field Saturday night.

Quick Hits: Scranton 2, Bisons 1

Tickets: $10.50, $12.50 or $13.50 from or the Coca-Cola Field box office.
