Top Performers:

Player of the Day

Thursday, April 11th POD goes to Anthony Alford.

 

The talented center fielder provided the Buffalo Bisons with some late game heroics. After a 3-run HR off the bat of Guerrero in the 5th inning to pull the Herd to with 4 runs (8-4), Alford hit an RBI double, scoring Biggio to cut the lead to 8 to 5. He was at it again in the 7th inning, blasting a 3-run HR over the left field wall, his 2nd home run of the year, scoring Vladdy and Biggio to knot the game up at 8-8 in the 7th inning.

 

It wasn’t all sunshine and rainbows for Anthony Alford on the evening as he struck out 3 times and was caught stealing. For the year, he is batting .292 with a double, a triple, a pair of HR, 8 RBI, 1-for-3 in stolen base attempts, and 1/10 BB/K. He has three 2-hit games in his 6 games played this year.

 

The Bo and Vlad Show

Vladimir Guerrero Jr. played his first Triple-A game of 2019, appearing as the Bisons’ DH on Thursday. Vladdy wasted little time making an impression going 2-for-4, with 2 runs, a double, his first longball of the year, 4 runs batted in, a walk, and a stolen base.

 

Bo Bichette leadoff for Buffalo and played SS. He went 1-for-5 with a run scored and owns a .138 batting average.
