MiLB Recap – Bisons walk off, Canadians erupt

1 of 5

Mandatory Credit:

Buffalo Bisons @ Columbus Clippers (Win 4-3)

A close 12 inning ball game becomes a Herd win as Dalton Pompey walks off the Clippers.  A solid combined pitching effort lead to the Bison comeback.  Matt Boyd had a rough 2nd inning where he allowed 2 runs but for the rest of the outing pitched well.  He allowed only 5 hits over 7 innings.  He did allow 3 earned runs but struck out 6 and only walked 1 batter.  Todd Redmond, Bobby Korecky, Rob Rasmussen each pitched in a scoreless inning to keep the team in the fight.  Chad Jenkins would come on and get the win after pitching 2 innings and striking out 2.

Solid pitching paved the way for the Herd offense.  Matt Hague kicked off the dramatic comeback with a 3 run homer off of Tyler Sturdevant in the 8th.  The home run tied the game for the time led the game into extra innings.  In the 12th Clippers pitcher Trey Haley walked 3 batters which brought Pompey to the plate.  Pompey dug in and popped a single up the middle to win the game.  During Pompey’s post game interview he credited the pitching staff for keeping the Bisons in the game.

Matt Hague 2-6 with a home run and 3 RBI
