Bisons take two in doubleheader

Tonawanda News — A scoreless game between the Buffalo Bisons and Columbus Clippers that was halted in the fourth inning by thunderstorms Tuesday was finally concluded Wednesday at Coca-Cola Field.

It needed a few extra innings to determine a winner. The Bisons prevailed, 5-4, in 13 innings when Adron Chambers singled to score Darin Mastroianni. 

And that was just the first game of a doubleheader on the evening's schedule. Buffalo later won the nightcap, 3-2.

After Columbus resumed the first game by taking a 1-0 lead in the fifth inning, the Bisons scored three in the sixth, highlighted by Ryan Goins' two-RBI single.

The Bisons took a 4-3 lead into the top of the ninth but the Clippers evened the score on Tim Fedroff's RBI single. The game remained tied at 4-4 until the 13th inning.

Luis Ayala (1-1) picked up the win for the Bisons, while Juan Carlos Ramirez (1-1) took the loss for Columbus.

In the second game, Chambers and Mastroianni combined to score again, this time both coming home on Chambers' two-run shot in the bottom of the fifth, erasing a Columbus lead and tying the game at 2-2.

The Bisons then went ahead in the bottom of the sixth as Erik Kratz hit into a fielder's choice which scored Andy LaRoche. That's how the nightcap finished, as Buffalo 

Raul Valdes (3-1), who entered the game in the fifth inning, picked up the win for the Bisons, who continue their series against Columbus this afternoon at 1:05 at Coca-Cola Field.
