Bisons and Baseball

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 …

An infield error opened the door for the second game in a row and the Gwinnett Stripers stepped through it for 6-2 victory over the Buffalo Bisons Wednesday night in light rain at Sahlen Field. Buffalo led 2-1 when Ryan LaMarre reached on a error by third baseman Alen Hanson. Two batters later Luis Marte homered to left field to give the Stripers the lead for good. Gwinn…

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. Toronto was trailing the host Kansas City Royals by a run and facing elimination. He still thinks about the pitch from closer Wade Davis, high and outside, th…

It took 46 at-bats over 13 games before Vladimir Guerrero Jr. finally struck for his first home run in the major leagues. And the Toronto Blue Jays third baseman liked the feeling so much he did it twice Tuesday night in leading the Jays to a 7-3 win over the San Francisco Giants in Oracle Park. After entering the game batting just .191, Guerrero struck with a 438-foot …

Tied 2-2 in the top of the seventh inning Tuesday, the Buffalo Bisons gave up three singles, three walks, a passed ball, a hit batter and two errors and a grand slam homer by Austin Riley. It added up to a nine-run inning and the Herd lost to the Gwinett Stripers, 11-3, at Sahlen Field to open a six-game home stand. The Stripers needed only nine hits in their 11-run outpu…

The Buffalo Bisons are showing improvement after a 6-14 start to the International League season, which included a seven-game losing streak. The Bisons batted around, pounding out seven of their game total of 11 hits in a six-run sixth inning on Sunday. It produced an 8-5 victory over the Norfolk Tides in the opener of what was a supposed to be a doubleheader at Harbor …

Three runs in the bottom of the fifth gave Norfolk all the offense it needed en route to a 4-1 win over the Buffalo Bisons Friday night to open a three-game series. Sean Reid-Foley (0-2) walked two Tides batters on six pitches to set the stage and Anthony Santander drove them both in with a double to left field. A double from Ryan Mountcastle right afterwards sent Sa…

Buffalo Bisons pitchers can’t stay away from the home run ball. The Herd gave up four to the Gwinnett Stripers on Wednesday night, including two by Austin Riley and lost, 9-2, at Coolray Field in Lawrenceville, Ga. Solo home runs by Riley and Luis Marte wiped out an early 2-0 Buffalo lead and Alex Jackson added his second in two nights and Riley hit his 12th of the seaso…

It was Lourdes Gurriel Jr. bobblehead giveaway day in Toronto, and the man himself was in a dugout in Syracuse, demoted a week earlier to the Triple-A Buffalo Bisons. The 25-year-old Gurriel opened the season as the Blue Jays’ starting second baseman. But he hit just .175 through 13 games and was benched during an April 15 loss to Tampa after committing a throwing error…

Anthony Alford drove in three runs, including the game-winner on a 10th inning triple for a 9-6 Buffalo victory over the Gwinnett Stripers before 1,676 on Tuesday night at Coolray Field in Lawrenceville, Ga. Alford also had a two-double in the victory which opened a six-game road trip to the International League's South Division for the Herd. Veteran former major lea…

Jonathan Davis hit the second pitch he saw leading off the first inning for Buffalo and drove it for his third home run of the season, starting the Bisons on the way to a 3-2 victory over the Lehigh Valley IronPigs on Sunday afternoon at Sahlen Field. The victory in the finale of a seven-game home stand ended a three-game losing streak for the Herd (11-17), who went 3-4 f…

Aside from the weather, the Buffalo Bisons had a sunny start to their eight-game homestand. But after winning the first four contests, the Herd could very well do no better than posting a .500 mark before leaving on another road trip. A former Bison sent the Herd to their third straight loss as Gift Ngoepe’s three-run double in the eighth gave Lehigh Valley the lead for…

Usually you can draw a few conclusions from the first month of the season, but it's impossible to figure out what to make of April when you look at the American League East. (OK, the Orioles were supposed to be terrible and they have been. The Blue Jays were supposed to range from mediocre to terrible and have been. Toss them out of this discussion). The Yankees can'…
