The Bisons dropped their second straight game at the hands of the Louisville Bats 11-0 on Tuesday night from Louisville Slugger Field. The win by the Bats evens the season series at 3-3.
The offensive explosion over the last week continued for the Bats, collecting 16 hits. Over 40-percent of their hits on the season have come in their last nine games, as Louisville won their fifth consecutive contest.
The Bisons line-up had a much different look with a few new additions. After the recent hamstring injury to Fernando Martinez, Andy Green made his eighth start of the season. While the Bisons hottest hitter, Chris Carter, got the promotion to the big leagues last night, Alex Cintron made just his tenth start of the year.
The changes didn't end there. Day's after Josh Thole went to the major's, Shawn Riggans was released by the Mets organization. The Bisons in turn received two new catcher's, both from Single-A St. Lucie, Tony Maccani and Jean Luc Blaquiere.
Blaquiere starred in his Triple-A debut. He went 2-3, with two doubles and behind the plate threw out the Bat's leading stealer Chris Burke in the third inning.
BISONS NOTES: With a single in the fifth inning, Jason Pridie extended his hitting streak to seven games...D.J. Wabick and Maccani both made their Bisons debuts and both were 0-1...The Bisons have combined to go just 12-65 (.185) with runners in scoring position over the first six games of the road trip.
