Bison Stampede The Chiefs

Needing victories badly after going through a tough stretch, the Bisons beat up on the Chiefs and won 4 of 5. Beat up might be a tad incorrect, as all games were pretty close. Still, 4 of 5 is a great outcome and brought the Herd back above .500 and back into the heat of the race.

Game 1: L 4-3

Will Rhymes

Thad Weber started and threw 7 innings of 4 run ball. 2 of the runs were driven in by former Tiger Will Rhymes on 2 separate hits. Mickey Storey pitched 2 innings of shutout ball in relief.

Multi-hit games from Mike McCoy (2-4) and Sean Ochinko (2-4). Andy LaRoche hit his 9th HR of the season.

For the Chiefs, 2B Danny Espinosa was 3-4 with a triple, bringing his average to .181 since being demoted.

Game 2: W 6-2

The winning began with game 1 of a double header with both games being 7 innings in length. Dave Bush pitched all 7 innings and gave up his 2 runs on a Will Rhymes HR. Bush struck out 8.

Multi-hit games from Kevin Pillar (2-3, HR, 2B, 2 RBI) and Andy LaRoche (3-3).

We had a Brian Jeroloman sighting for the Chiefs. He was 0-2 with a patented walk and he scored on the Rhymes HR.

Game 3: W 4-1

Chien-Ming Wang got the nod in the night game of the double header. He followed up with a 7 inning complete game allowing just 1 run on 3 hits.

Ryan Goins had the only multi-hit game, going 2-3 with a double. Sean Ochinko hit a 3-run HR.

Game 4: W 6-2

Ricky Romero started and was good. He went 7 innings allowing 2 runs on 6 hits and 2 walks. He struck out 7. John Stilson threw 2 perfect innings to close it out.

Multi-hit games from Kevin Pillar (3-4, 3B) and the rehabbing Brett Lawrie, who played 2B ICYMI (2-4, HR, 3 RBI).

For the Chiefs, Will Rhymes hit another HR. Both his HR this season have been off the Bisons.

Game 5: W 4-3

Justin Germano got the start and gave up 3 in 6.2 innings. Brad Lincoln got the win with 2 innings of shutout relief.

Multi-hit games from Andy LaRoche (2-4, HR) and Anthony Gose (2-4). Mauro Gomez hit his 25th HR of the season.

Brett Lawrie was 0-4 with 2 K in his 2nd rehab game.
