Last Game: BUF 11, IND 3
Buffalo hit their way into the win column in last night's game as they compiled 11 runs on 15 hits. Nick Franklin led the Indians offense with his 2-4 performance including a home run, but it wasn't enough to offset their bullpen which gave up nine runs. Seven extra-base hits, including a long ball by Patrick Kivlehan, powered the offense for the Bisons, and 8.0 IP, while allowing just two runs, from the bullpen secured the Buffalo win.
Louisville Bats (2-1)
Buffalo and Louisville are meeting for the second time in 2019 as the Bisons won the last series when they hosted in Bats in May. This will be their final meeting of the season as this is a cross-divisional series.
LHP Ryan Feierabend comes into his sixth start on the year for the Bisons. His last appearance came from the bullpen as he tossed 4.0 IP while allowing two runs on five hits and striking out three batters. Feierabend now carries a 3-1 record with a 5.60 ERA and a K:BB ratio of 20:12 over 27.1 IP.
C Reese McGuire contributed on both sides of the ball in last night's game. At the plate he went 2-5 with an RBI, a double, and a run scored to extend his hit streak to seven games where he is hitting .400 in that span. Behind the plate, McGuire caught a runner stealing at third base in the first inning.
OF Patrick Kivlehan was once again the source of power for the Bisons as he hit his sixth home run with the team in just 18 games. Overall, he went 2-4 with two RBI's, two walks, and two runs scored on the game. Kivlehan is now hitting .311 with Buffalo and has driven in 16 in his short tenure.
RHP Corey Copping delivered his longest appearance out of the bullpen in 2019 with three scoreless innings. He allowed just two hits and two walks to his three strikeouts as he dropped his ERA down to 6.00 and picking up his first win on the year.
