1 of 4

Mandatory Credit:

Buffalo Bisons vs Columbus Clippers (Win 5-2)

This pitchers duel turned into a late inning nail bitter.  Randy Wolf Spins another gem and set the pace for the start of the game.  He tossed 7 solid innings while scattering 7 hits and 3 walks.  He was able to strike out 7 Clippers also.  As Wolf’s dominance continued though the bats were asleep.  TJ House of the clippers pitched 5 innings of 4 hit ball to keep the game close.

Finally in the 8th inning the Herd struck for a pair of runs.  After the Clippers kept pace in the bottom of the inning and tied it at 2 the Bisons came to the plate.  After a Chris Dickerson single and a Brad Glenn walk Kevin Nolan came up.  He had pinch ran for Luke Scott earlier and scored.  Nolan was just called up from Double-A prior to the game and decided to take advantage of the situation.  Nolan got his pitch and cracked a 3-run homer.  The lead would hold and in the 9th as Colt Hynes picked up his first save of the season.
