The Bisons wrapped up a six-game home stand with an 11-7 win over Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Tuesday afternoon.
Centerfielder Jason Pridie collected four hits and five RBIs, including his second home run of the season, and every Bison reached base at least once, with the exception of first baseman Chris Carter.
Pridie came into Tuesday’s contest with a .227 batting average, and left Coca-Coal Field at .286. He has been terrific defensively in the Herd’s first 12 games, and he leads the team with four stolen bases.
On the mound, starter Pat Misch had his worst outing of the early season, going 5.2 innings while surrendering six hits, two walks and three earned runs. Reliever Elmer Dessens allowed one inherited runner to score in the eighth inning, but he closed the door on the Yankees, and picked up his third win of the season out of the bullpen thanks to a four-run bottom of the eighth by the Herd.
Buffalo now packs up for a short two-game visit with Rochester before heading to Pawtucket for four games over the weekend. The Herd return home next week for an eight-game home stand beginning on Tuesday night against Durham.
