After not getting a hit in his last two games, Lucas May came up big for the Herd on Sunday as he was the hero in the Buffalo Bisons 3-2 win over the Indianapolis Indians.
May went 2-4 on the afternoon, driving in all three Bisons runs on the day.
With the Bisons up 2-1 in the 7th, May hit a key single, driving in Matt Den Dekker to give the Herd a key insurance run that would end up becoming the game winning hit.
Starting for Buffalo on the day was Chris Schwinden. Schwinden had a wonderful outing, going seven innings, allowing one run and three hits to earn the win.
Robert Carson came in relief to close the game out for the Herd, earning his first save on the year.
With the victory, the Bisons earn only their second win in their last 10 games as they have been struggling of late.
The Bisons now stand at 53-56 overall and sit 7.5 games back of Scranton Wilkes-Barre in the IL Wild Card Standings with a little over a month left in the season.
The Herd takes the field again tomorrow as they face Indianapolis in game three of their four game series tomorrow night at 7:05.

After last night's Mets win loss, Mets skipper Terry Collins said he has some bad news, but wasn't going to reveal it until this morning.
Adam Rubin and others have tweeted and reported that there isn't any indication as to what the "bad news" is.
All that being said, I will throw a couple of possibilities out there as to what the "bad news"...
What ever happened to Jason Bay? We have seen flashes of his old self over the past three years, but this is looking more and more like one of the worst signings in New York Mets history. The Mets are basically starting every game with 24 outs when he’s in the lineup, and when you factor in the pitcher, it’s more like 21.
I know a lot of Mets fans questions why they keep...
Mike Baxter has completed his rehab stint and will join the Mets in San Francisco to open up the four-game set with the NL West-leading Giants. Corresponding with the move. Kirk Nieuwenhuis will be sent down to Triple-A Buffalo to make room on the 25-man roster.
Nieuwenhuis was batting .252 with seven homers and 28 RBIs in 91 games this year prior to his demotion. He was mired in...
RA Dickey bounced back with a seven-inning outing against the Arizona Diamondbacks
The Mets won their second game in a series, which at this point in the post-all star break season is a major victory, sad but true. RA Dickey pitched seven strong innings as he returned to his first-half form as the Mets defeated the Arizona Diamondbacks on Sunday afternoon by the score of 5-1.
The Mets have been reeling since the all-star break and their 2012 chances are as bleak as ever. The trade deadline is just 24 hours away and as expected, the Mets have been fairly silent. Nobody expects the team to make a huge move, which is warranted due to the team’s poor play in the past two weeks. However, one move that does make sense to me is acquiring Denard Span. Hear...
Dickey came back strong as the Mets were able to split the four game set with Arizona by a final score of 5-1.
Closing out this four-game set, the Mets looked to their ace, R.A. Dickey, to even up the four game set and get this tanking Mets team turned around.
The offense got Dickey an early cushion as they did for Matt Harvey in his debut Thursday, scoring a pair on back...
PHOENIX - The only knuckleballer in the National League is also its only 14-game winner. Mets right-hander R.A. Dickey gave up one unearned run and four hits in seven innings in a 5-1 victory over Arizona on Sunday, recovering nicely after having a streak of 11 consecutive winning decisions broken by Washington last Tuesday. "I had, surprisingly, a pretty good knuckler from...
PHOENIX (AP) -- D-backs overcome Davis' 3 HRs to beat Mets 6-3
Miguel Montero homered, scored twice and drove in a pair of runs to help the Arizona Diamondbacks overcome Ike Davis' three home runs in a 6-3 win over the skidding New York Mets on Saturday night.
Ian Kennedy pitched into the seventh inning and Gerardo Parra added three hits and two RBIs for third-place Arizona...
SAN FRANCISCO -- Scott Hairston's name was floating in rumors as the days melted away before the trading deadline. But as the days turned to hours, the New York Mets were certainly thrilled to still have the veteran outfielder. Hairston hit two homers, a game-tying shot in the eighth and a go-ahead blast in the 10th, to lift the Mets to a knock-down, drag-out 8-7, 10-inning...
The Mets, desperate for a win, prayed last night to slink out of their home stand with something to show for it. They were risking going 0-6, the first time they had done that home since 2002. They had their work cut out for them Wednesday afternoon with the Washington Nationals’ 6-foot-5 pitching prodigy, Stephen Strasburg, on the mound.
Murphy’s Law was in effect.
Perhaps a visit from the New York Mets can wake up San Francisco's struggling offense and help the Giants end their current skid.
After being shut out in back-to-back contests, the Giants look to avoid a season-high fifth straight loss by continuing their recent success against the Mets on Monday night.
San Francisco (55-46) opened its current 10-game homestand with two wins...
