Val Pascucci (2-5, HR(19), 2 RBI) hit a two-run walk off home run in the bottom of the 11th to send a crowd of 16,447 home jumping for joy.
Pascucci on his HR (via Buffalo News):
You look for that pitch up in the zone. I was trying to drive it, because I knew I had a guy on, trying to hit a gap really. It's just one of those things. He left it up and it was right in the wheelhouse and I didn't miss that one.Here is the video of the Pascucci home run.
The Bisons tied the game in the bottom of the 9th with a Jesus Feliciano run scoring single.
(via Buffalo News) The win also gave the Bisons their first win of the season when they trailed after the eighth inning. Buffalo was 0-57 before Friday's contest.
Zach Lutz continues to mash the baseball. He finished the game 2-3, 3 runs scored, HR(9), RBI, 2 BB. Over his last 10 games Lutz has hit four home runs and has a triple slash line of .353/.463/.765. He is smelling a September call-up to the show.
Here is the video of the Lutz bomb.
Lost in all of the late inning heroics was the effort of Bisons starter Chris Schwinden. Schwinden tossed 5 2/3 shutout innings. He gave up four hits, walked one, and struck out six.
Jeurys Familia tossed six shutout innings, giving up just one hit. He walked two and struck out seven.
Familia's last two starts: 11 IP, 3 hits, 0 runs, 2 bb, 14 k. That's good!!!
The B-Mets offense banged out 10 runs on 13 hits. The big blow came off the bat of Brahiam Maldonado (1-5, HR(24), 4 RBI). Maldonado cranked out a grand slam in the top of the fifth, to give the B-Mets a commanding 6-0 lead. It was Maldonado's team leading 24th home run of the season.
Allan Dykstra (1-4, HR(16), RBI) launched a solo home run.
