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'…

Just when the Buffalo Bisons got on a bit of a roll with three wins in a row, they find themselves stymied by the weather again. The Herd's game against the Pawtucket Red Sox on Wednesday night at Sahlen Park was postponed when a deluge hit the downtown area just before the scheduled 6:05 first pitch. After a delay the game was called off and will be rescheduled as p…

Vladimir Guerrero Jr. is gone to Toronto, conceivably for good. Now, you never completely know how these things go. As Buffalo Bisons manager Bobby Meacham said Monday, "the big leagues are a different animal, man." And even Los Angeles Angels superstar Mike Trout got sent back to Triple-A for 20 games in 2012 as a 23-year-old. But Guerrero certainly looks like a sure b…

Lourdes Gurriel Jr. emerged as the walkoff hero for the Buffalo Bisons Tuesday night in a 4-3 victory over the Pawtucket Red Sox in the opener of their doubleheader at Sahlen Field. Gurriel drove in three of the four Buffalo runs. Besides his bases-loaded single in the bottom of the ninth to win it, he hit his fourth home run of the season with a man on in the first inn…
