Leading the Herd attack was Dalton Pompey out of the lead off spot. Pompey raked in 4 hits in 6 at bats with a double, 2 runs scored, and 3 RBIs.

Casey Kotchman supplied the pop with solo homerun in the 6th, going 2-4 with 2 runs scored and 3 RBI.
On the mound Chris Leroux was able to coast once the offense lashed out on the Chiefs pitchers. Leroux pitched 6 innings with the only true damage coming off of a 3 run homer by Scott Sizemore. Pat McCoy allowed a run during his 1 inning of work then Ben Rowen and Chad Girodo shut the Chiefs down. The win was the Bisons 5th straight as the continue to charge up in standings.
