MiLB Recap – Beat up Wolf

1 of 4

Mandatory Credit:

Buffalo Bisons vs Indianapolis Indians (Loss 4-8)

Randy Wolf got roughed up to the tune of 6 runs in 2.2 innings.  Wolf has been nothing but dominate so far this season in Buffalo but finally fell back toward earth from the stratosphere.  6 earned runs on 7 hits and 3 walks will not keep you in games.  I have enjoyed watching Randy Wolf’s resurgence but have been wondering when all the base runners were going to catch up to him.  The difference this season for him and last night was the ability to work out of trouble.  Last night he was unable to work his way out the issues.

After Wolf was chased from the game the bullpen came on and crushed the Indians lineup.  Chad Jenkins, Jeff Francis, and Colt Hynes combined to keep the Indians off the board the rest of the game.  Jenkins came in and stomped out the fire that was the Indians lineup. Jeff Francis came on and shined as he struck out 3 in 3 innings and only allowed 2 hits.  To close out the game Hynes struck out the side in his one inning of work.

On offense Chris Dickerson raked in 2 RBI’s to lead the Bison attack.  Andy Burns collected 4 hits and an RBI also.  Recent free agent signing Luke Scott continued to hit the ball hard.  He collected a double, and RBI, and went 3-4.  After the bullpen did such a great job of keeping the Herd in the game it is a shame the offense could not pick it up and work toward the win.

Line of the night

Jeff Francis 3 IP, 3 K’s, 0ER, 1 BB

Andy Burns 4-5 a run scored and an RBI
