No team in the International League has allowed more home runs this season than the Buffalo Bisons. Conversely, no team has hit fewer homers than the Herd.

Cavan Biggio sent a double into right field in the bottom of the ninth inning and came around to score on a passed ball to complete Buffalo’s 7-6 comeback over Louisville on Friday. Biggio had reached third on a botched pickoff attempt moments before the passed ball. Anthony Bass’ pitch went off catcher Juan Graterol’s mitt, and the latter made no effort to retrieve …

Ben Revere still thinks about his final at-bat in a Toronto Blue Jays uniform. It was Game 6 of the 2015 American League Championship Series, one out in the top of the ninth inning, runners on second and third.

It took 46 at-bats over 13 games before Vladimir Guerrero Jr. finally struck for his first home run in the major leagues.

After entering the game batting just .191, Guerrero struck with a 438-foot …

A double from Ryan Mountcastle right afterwards sent Sa…
