Clippers earn four-game sweep with 7-3 win over Bisons

More and more it's starting to look like 2009 around Coca-Cola Field. That first season of the Bisons' affiliation with the Mets was one of the worst in the long history of the Herd. After Tuesday's 7-3 loss to Columbus, Buffalo have now dropped ten of their last 11 and things are grim.

LHP Pat Misch gutted out seven innings for the Bisons, who desperately needed innings from their starter. Misch gave up four earned runs on six hits, including a key two-run home run to Columbus' Jerald Head in thie sixth inning.

In the seventh RHP John Lujan, who has been reliable all season long for manager Tim Teufel, struggled. The 27-year-old out of Waco, Texas gave up three hits to all three batters that he faced, including a two-run blast by Columbus' Chad Huffman.

The Herd put up another late rally, loading the bases with nobody out in the bottom of the eighth, but could only manage to push across one run on a fielder's choice from 2B Luis Hernandez.

Game Notes: SS Luis Figueroa needed a ninth inning at-bat to extend his hitting streak to ten games, but he got it done with a line drive single to left.....Bison OF Bubba Bell was ejected in the third inning after being called out at first on a close play that did looke like he was safe......As great as Columbus is going right now, it looks like their parent club in Cleveland have hit the wall like many expected. The Tribe have only two wins in their last 12, both 1-0 wins by pitcher Carlos Carrasco.

The Bisons get a much-needed day off on Wednesday where they'll travel to Norfolk to open a four-game series with the Tide on Thursday night.
