Buffalo, NY – It was a record breaking day for the Bisons in their home opener as they dominated the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Yankees 12-3 in front of an announced 10,905 fans at Coca-Cola Field.
The 12 runs broke the Bisons previous record for runs in a home opener, a 10 run outing in a win over Pawtucket in 2003.

Buffalo would go up 2-0 when Jordany Valdespin hit in Adam Loewen on a fielder’s choice to first.
The Yankees would get on the board in the next half inning when Dewayne Wise blasted a three run homer to right field to give the Yankees the 3-2 lead. It was their only lead of the game as the Bisons would put the game out of reach in the bottom of the fourth.
With a man on and one out, Valdespin belted the ball over the Bully Hill party deck in right field to give the Bisons...

The Surrealist director Philippe Mora told the NY Post that "...
I know that the season is just beginning,and that players are just beginning to get the feel for the game again, but what I saw from David Robertson yesterday definitely blew my mind.
Even though he only pitched one inning and struck only one hitter and walked one, I could see how every hitter looked helpless when facing him. His pitch location was perfect and his fastball was...
In the movie Major League, Ricky Vaughn (played by none other than Charlie Sheen), came out to the song Wild Thing by The Troggs. That was partly due to his personality, but also because Ricky had a little trouble throwing strikes. in Major League Baseball, Mitch Williams took that role, and adopted the same song for similar reasons.
