It was Star Wars night in Buffalo. Outside of the originals, I'm not fan of the series, but the jerseys were awesome, and it's a very, very well done promotion reflected in the 13,582 attendance the Bisons posted.
From the game:
1. Chris Schwinden has regressed.
Saturday: 5.2 IP, 7 H, 5 R, 4 ER, 4 BB, 2 K.
A few weeks ago, he was being mentioned as a potential replacement for an injured R.A. Dickey. Here's why you won't be seeing that talk again anytime soon:
|1st 7 starts||1.81||39.67||26||8||8||1||0||12||35|
|1st 7 starts||.226||.316||2.9||27%||9%||0.78%|
2. When he's healthy, he hits.
Zack Lutz has played two games in Buffalo since returning from the DL and has two hits in both after going 2-4 with a walk and an RBI Saturday. He landed on the DL with a strained hamstring and then broke a finger when a teammates' liner struck him during his rehab. Lutz turned 25 last week and now is hitting .333/.418/.521 in 15 games in AAA this year.
