STAFF REPORTS

ALLENTOWN, P.A. -- In the series finale, the IronPigs power surge was too much for the Herd as it fell 8-0 on Sunday afternoon.

The barrage of home runs by the IronPigs continued. After a five-home run game, Lehigh Valley produced a total of 11 four-baggers throughout the four-game series against the Bisons.

After the first inning, Lehigh Valley controlled a 4-0 lead on a couple of home runs--two-run shots from Mitch Walding and Dylan Cozens.

Walding and Cozens each went deep for a second time. In the third, Walding slugged a solo shot while Cozens hit a solo blast in the fifth. Cozens was a power menace at the plate against the Bisons and the pair of longballs Sunday afternoon marked his third and fourth home runs in the series.

Adron Chambers added a solo home run in the fourth. Chambers also recorded the IronPigs' first run that wasn't a home run on an RBI-single in the fifth.

Out of the 14 IronPigs' hits, seven of them went for extra-bases.

Offensively, the Bisons were held scoreless and tallied five hits. Buffalo went 0-4 with runners in scoring position and left five on base. Gio Urshela went 2-3 with two singles and a walk.

The Herd returns home for a seven-game homestand beginning Monday night against the Norfolk Tides. First pitch is set for 7:05 p.m. from Coca-Cola Field.
