The Bisons took 3 of 4 from the Bats in a series that ended Monday night.

I've glossed over the first 2 games already so I'll jump right to game 3.

Game 3:

Scoring kicked off in the bottom of the 3rd, as Billy Hamilton bunted to single with 2 outs, stole 2nd base, and scored on a Henry Rodriguez single. Rodriguez would follow up his next at-bat in the 5th with a 2-run double, making it 3-0 Bats.

In the bottom of the 6th, the Bats poured it on. Lead-off single by Perez followed by a Soto single, allowing Phipps to double in a runner. After a ground out, Negron singled in 2 runners making the score 6-0. Clint Everts came on to replace Germano and got a ground out before Goins allowed Ashley to reach by error and score a run. Hamilton then walked, and Rodriguez followed with a 2-run double. 9-0 Bats.

Negron would add a 3-run HR in the 7th to make it 12-0. The Bisons would scratch together a run in the 8th and 9th to make the final 12-2.

Multi-hit games from Luis Jimenez (3-4) and Ryan Goins (2-4). For the Bats, Billy Hamilton went 1-4 with a walk and a steal. Henry Rodriguez went 3-5 with 2 doubles and 5 RBI.

Game 4:

This was a noteworthy effort. I'll get to my favourite part later.

Anthony Gose slashed a double to lead off the game and scored on a Sierra single. In the 3rd, Billy Hamilton singled, stole 2nd base and went to 3rd on Thole's error. He would score on a Rodriguez grounder.

Thole would make amends in the 4th with an RBI single. The Bats would tie it at 2 on a Soto single in the 5th. In the 7th, Billy Hamilton led off with a single and then stole 2nd and scored on a Soto single. Phipps would add a sacrifice fly to make it 4-2.

In the 8th, the Bisons came out swinging. Sierra hit a 1 out double, and Jimenez followed with a walk. Mauro Gomez smacked a 3-run HR to make it 5-4. Neil Wagner came on to close it out and wired a 101 MPH heater. Wow.

Multi-hit games from Moises Sierra (2-5) and Mauro Gomez (3-4, HR). For the Bats, Billy Hamilton went 3-5 with 2 SB and 3 runs scored.
