Not a Valentino Pascucci or a Vinny Rottino would best The Podfather this night.
Starting pitcher Tom Cochran went 6 strong scoreless innings giving up 4 hits with 2 BB and 4 K.
Scott Podsednik leads off with a grounder to short - just out at first. The Podfather would go on to a 2-5 night with 2 R and the game winning RBI.
Domonic Brown singles to right, steals 2nd and is left stranded when Hector Luna...
...ends the inning - "Called 3rd Strike - Got emmm"
In the 2nd, Raul Reyes attempts a steal and the throw is...
...NOT in time - Safe!
In the 'Pigs half of the 3rd, after walks to Podsednik and Brown, Hector Luna advances both runners into scoring position on a ground out to third for the 2nd out.
Mike Fontenot becomes Mike FontenYES (courtesy of Matt Provence) and with a single to left plates Scott Podsednik for the first run of the game. In two games Fontenot is 3 for 7 (.429) with a 2b an RBI and 2 BB while only striking out once.
During the 4th, following a single, Buffalo's Josh Satin (1B) is OUT at a close (force) out at 2nd. The inning then ends on a 6-4-3 DP.
Bottom 5 - Following a single by Podsednik and a double by Frandsen, Domonic Brown launches a fly to LF. Vinny Rottino readies himself and fires home as The Podfather tags and...
...with a nifty slide, Pods beats the play at the plate to score again!
Bottom of the 6th - Erik Kratz ropes one into the BullPen and the 'Pigs are up 3-0. Buffalo would get 2 in the 8th on a 2-run dinger by Vinny Rottino and 1 more in the 9th to tie the game 3-3 and send the 'Pigs to extra frames.
The IronPigs' Raul Valdes strikes out Buffalo's Raul Reyes in the top of the 11th and would get the win in the bottom half when...
The Podfather singles to right... The play at the plate...
... and Kratzie is SAFE - scoring from second to end the game in the 11th. Pigs 4 - Bisons 3. While stranding 11, the 'Pigs did have 2 hits with runners in scoring position to end the losing streak. Pigs Fly!
