Jason Leblebijian, who is the club leader in RBI, drove in a pair of insurance runs in the eighth. Teoscar Hernandez started the inning with a double and Petit provided a base hit to give the Herd two base runners. Leblebijian then sent the full-count pitch to the wall in left bringing home both runs for a 6-3 lead.
Dwight Smith Jr. was the first Buffalo base runner when he reached with a two-out walk in the first frame. Rowdy Tellez stayed hot blasting a ball into the gap that allowed Smith Jr. to scamper home just ahead of the tag for the first run of the game.
An error by IronPigs' shortstop on a potential double play ball kept the second inning alive for the Herd. Gregorio Petit reached on a fielder's choice followed by Jason Leblebijian reaching on an error. The Bisons capitalized on the IronPigs' miscue when Roemon Fields slapped a ball into right scoring Petit from second to give the Herd a 2-0 lead.
Bisons Notes: Roemon Fields was 3-4 with two RBI... Gergorio Petit went 2-4 with a RBI and three runs scored... Dwight Smith Jr. was 0-1 with three walks and one run scored.
