MiLB Recap – Andy Burns and Bisons Hold off Red Wings

1 of 4

Mandatory Credit:

Buffalo Bisons vs Rochester Red Wings (Win 6-5)

It is amazing how fast things can change in baseball.  The Bisons found this out quick yesterday as a 6-1 lead turned into a 6-5 nail bitter.  Randy Wolf got the Herd off to a great start as once again he was looking dominant.  He allowed one run on 6 hits over 6 innings of work while striking out 6.  The Red Wings continued to struggle against Steve Delebar and Gregory Infante.  Neither of them allowed a run and pushed things to the 9th were it became Joba Chamberlain’s turn.  Joba had issues and allowed a hit and a walk while the defense allowed a runner on from an error.  Now with the bases loaded Reynaldo Rodriguez torched a bases clearing triple.  This made the game close and now a save opportunity that Ben Rowen would step up to complete.  The save was the 1st of the season for Rowen.

On offense it was Andy Burns who was in excellent form on Wednesday night.  Burns carried the offense with a 3-4 night.  He collected a double, home run, and 4 RBIs in the game.  Finishing the game only a triple short of the cycle in the impressive performance.  Adding to the offense was Dalton Pompey as he went 2-4 and scored 2 runs.  Pompey continues to be a nuisance on the base paths as he picks up his 12th stolen base.  The Herds 12 hit attack pushed the Red Wings against the ropes but they fought back and made this game a lot closer then anyone would have guessed after the game started.

Line of the game

Andy Burns 3-4 with a double, a home run, 1 run, and 4 RBI’s
