Big series win for the Bisons, taking 3 of 4 on the road.
Game 1 on Friday night had a strong Dave Bush performance. He threw 5.2 IP allowing just 2 ER. The Bisons would win 6-3.
Extra base hits were the story as Sierra, Nickeas, McCoy, and Jimenez all had RBI extra base hits in the first 3 innings. They added 2 runs on sacrifice flys.
Game 2 had Ricky Romero on the hill. He wasn't terrible. 6 IP with 5 runs on 8 hits. He didn't walk anybody although he cave up a 1st inning 2-run HR to Russ Canzler and allowed Xavier Avery to triple in a run a score on a subsequent wild pitch in the 2nd inning.
On offense, the Bisons tied it at 4 in the 4th on 2-run HR from Gomez and a 2-run single from Goins. Jimenez would hit a HR in the 5th to tie it up after the Tide scored via sacrifice fly.
Trayvon Robinson hit a walk-off HR off Beck to win it for the Tide. 6-5.
Game 3 had the Bisons winning 7-4 on the strength of a 3rd inning that started with a Goins double. The inning followed with a walk, a bunt hit, a RBI hit-by-pitch for Sierra, sacrifice fly, sacrifice fly, and a LaRoche 2-run HR. Jimenez hit a 2nd inning HR as well.
Justin Germano was strong in 6 innings for the Herd, striking out 8 and allowing just 2 ER.
Game 4 was a power display, as the Bisons won 10-5 on the backs of a 1st inning Thole 2-run HR and 2 Gomez HR in the 5th and 7th innings. Nickeas added a 2-run 4th inning double.
