MiLB Recap – Copeland Deals, D-Jay’s Slugfest

1 of 5

Mandatory Credit:

Buffalo Bisons @ Gwinnett Braves (Win 2-0)

Scott Copeland shows why he should still be considered a solid pitcher in the Jay’s now open prospect list.  Pitching a stellar 7 innings on Sunday allowed the Bisons to take one from the Braves.  Copeland scattered 8 hits and only walked 1 batter.  This kept the Braves being able to put the pieces together to score runs off of Copeland even though he only struck out 1 batter.  Ben Rawdon recorded a hold as he pitched a scoreless inning.  Joba Chamberlin came on in the 9th to record his second save for the Bison’s.  A solid pitching performance paved the way to victory in this game.

Offensively the Herd was able to muster just enough pop to squeeze in 2 runs.  The Bisons only collected 7 hits compared to the Braves 9 hits but were able to come up with a few timely hits.  Alex Hanson collected the only true RBI of the game as he plated Ezequiel Carrera in the 4th inning.  The other RBI was collected by Jonathan Diaz as he walked in the 7th inning.  Matt Hague continues to impress as he collected his 50th multi-hit game and is sitting at a cool .349 batting average for the Bisons.  He ended the day with a 2-4  performance.  Ty Kelly also collected a pair of hits and a run scored in the Herd’s winning effort.
