Buffalo bounced back beating Durham 8-3

All WNY News     Wednesday, July 26, 2017    

A home run by Mike Ohlman started a six-run rally in the seventh to seal the win over the Bulls 8-3 Wednesday night at Coca-Cola Field.

Facing a third consecutive loss, the Bisons trailed the Bulls 3-2 entering the bottom of the seventh. Jason Leblebijian led off the inning with a line drive single into right. Mike Ohlman then stepped into the box and delivered a huge fly ball that cleared the wall in right for a two-run blast to give Buffalo the lead.

Buffalo did not stop there; Roemon Fields reached on a fielder's choice, then stole second and moved into third after a wild throw. Dwight Smith Jr. beat out an infield single that allowed Fields to score on the play. Gregorio Petit was issued a free pass to set up a RBI single into right for Rob Refsnyder. In the ensuing at-bat, Rowdy Tellez ripped a ball off the wall in right to score two runs as he reached second safely with a two RBI double. The Herd sent a total of ten batters to the plate as they collected five hits to score six runs grabbing an 8-3 advantage in the seventh.

The Herd managed to get on the board first in the second inning without recording a single hit. Rob Refsnyder led the inning off with a walk. Rowdy Tellez then hit a comebacker to the pitcher who threw the ball into center on the double play attempt, allowing both runners to advance into second and third. With two on, a sacrifice fly off the bat of Jason Leblebijian brought home Refsnyder and provided Buffalo with the 1-0 lead.

The third inning started off with Jon Berti doubling down the line in left. The next batter Dwight Smith Jr. traded places with him ripping a double to left to bring in the run and extend Buffalo's advantage to 2-0 in the third.

Bisons Notes: Mike Ohlman went 2-4 with a home run, double and two RBI… Dwight Smith Jr. was 2-4 with two RBI, a run scored and a walk…Jon Berti was 2-5 with a run scored.

Homer-happy Wings fly past Indy

All WNY News     Wednesday, July 26, 2017    

The Rochester Red Wings matched a season-high with four home runs, two from Kennys Vargas, to knock off the Indianapolis Indians 7-1 Wednesday afternoon at Victory Field.

Mitch Garver and Niko Goodrum both hit solo home runs for the Red Wings (59-44), who snapped a brief two-game losing skid with the victory. Rochester also homered four times in game two on April 9 at Syracuse.

Dillon Gee (3-1) surrendered one run over 6.0 innings, bouncing back from a rough start in his last outing. He scattered six hits and didn't issue a walk while striking out seven.

The Wings wasted little time jumping on Indians (57-46) starter Tyler Eppler (6-6). Garver hit his homer with one out in the 1st to make it 1-0. Matt Hague made it 2-0 when he doubled and later scored with two outs when he stole third base and scampered home on an error.

Joey Terdoslavich cut the lead in half at 2-1 with a two-out RBI single in the bottom of the 1st.

Goodrum answered with a home run on an 0-2 pitch leading off the 2nd.

The 3-1 lead remained until Vargas hit a line-drive home run on a 3-0 pitch to extend the advantage to 4-1. His second came in the 8th inning to put the game out of reach, capping the scoring at 7-1.

Gee set the side down in order just once, in the 5th, but allowed just one extra-base hit in the game. Indianapolis put runners aboard to open the 6th inning but Gee worked out of trouble, using a pair of strikeouts.

Jake Reed (2.0 IP) and John Curtiss (1.0 IP) tossed scoreless relief behind Gee. The only baserunner against either pitcher was after Reed hit Jacob Stallings leading off the 7th.

J.B. Shuck finished 3-for-5 with a double while Hague and Vargas both tallied multi-hit efforts for the Wings. Garver, Hague and Vargas combined to score six of Rochester's seven runs.

The Red Wings will look for the split tomorrow as Kyle Gibson returns to start for Rochester after being optioned from Minnesota.

Higgins calls transgender military ban 'outrageous'

All WNY News     Wednesday, July 26, 2017    

Congressman Brian Higgins (NY-26), a member of the Congressional LGBT Equality Caucus, released the following statement in response to the President's announcement of a transgender ban in the U.S. Military:

"I have had the opportunity to see our servicemembers in action in some of the most volatile regions of the world and there is nothing more impressive and inspiring.   Members of the U.S. military embody American pride.  
"The President's transgender ban in the military shows an outrageous lack of respect and understanding.  His actions threaten the strength of our military and the liberties each and every one of our servicemembers risk their lives to protect. 
"Statements made by the President of the United States mean something and today's comments by President Trump are the latest demonstrating blatant and dangerous abuse of the bully pulpit.  
"The United States military fight for our freedoms and we will fight for theirs."
