Buffalo Bisons 8, Syracuse Chiefs 5


Rowdy Tellez keeps getting rowdier as the season progresses as he hit his second home run of the year to help drive the Buffalo Bisons to an 8-5 victory over the Syracuse Chiefs. Tellez went 2/3 with a home run and three RBI, adding a stolen base. Tim Lopes was 2/4 with a triple, two RBI, two runs and two stolen bases while Jason Lebelbijian hit his fifth home run, going 1/4 with his solo blast. Darnell Sweeney was 1/4 with a double and a run and Lourdes Gurriel hit a double, took a walk, drove in a run and stole a base.

Chris Rowley started and allowed five runs (four earned) over six innings, giving up six hits (including two home runs) and four walks with one strikeout. Dusty Isaacs made his Triple-A debut, giving up just a hit over two innings while striking out three and Al Alburquerque got the save with a perfect ninth, striking out one.
