Bisons Top Plates, 5-2, Thursday
For the first time in 693 days, the Rochester Plates have lost.
The Buffalo Bisons beat the Plates 5-2 on a perfect afternoon for baseball at Frontier Field.
Buffalo took the lead in the first inning on a solo homer from Christian Colon.
Alec Keller tied the game in the third inning with a solo home run to right field - his second of the season.
The Bisons grabbed the lead back in the fourth inning on a Dilson Herrera sac fly and extended it in the fifth on George Springer's RBI double.
Springer went 1-for-4 as the Bisons leadoff man and is 2-for-12 in the series.
The Wings (15-24) pulled within one in the bottom of the fifth on a Yadiel Hernandez RBI double but would get no closer.
Ben Braymer made the start for Rochester and suffered the loss allowing two runs on three hits over 3 2/3 innings. Nick Wells made his Red Wings debut in relief of Braymer and allowed two runs in 2 1/3 innings.
Game four of the series is Friday night at Frontier Field. First pitch is set for 7:05.
