Buffalo, NY - Dave Bush had been fantastic on the mound all season for the Bisons this year. Not so much Monday night.
Norfolk roughed up Bush for nine hits and six earned runs while blasting three home runs in the process as they handed the Herd their tenth loss on the season, 8-3 in front of 4,995 at Coca-Cola Field.
Bush had given up just five earned runs in four starts this season while maintaining a 1.61 ERA and a 3-1 overall record. He threw 58 pitches and 36 for strikes in just 3 2/3 innings of work.
“Not his (Bush) day,” said Bisons manager Marty Brown. ”He didn’t command the ball early in the count – behind in the count and then he was up. David has to command the ball and get ahead in the count and he knows that. Today was just an off day for him.”
Yamaico Navarro had a four-hit night for the Tides while Travis Ishikawa hit two homeruns in the second and fourth innings to cut Bush’s night short.
Ishikawa’s two-run blast in the second inning put Norfolk ahead 2-1 and his fourth-inning solo shot over the 367 sign in the right field was part of a four-run fourth inning which allotted to a 6-1 lead.
“We got pitched to,” said Brown. ”Johnson did a very good job. He patted the zone down. He was with an umpire that likes to call the low pitch so he was ahead in the count most of the day and it made it difficult for us because he would elevate and it caused us to chase.”
Norfolk complied 15 hits total on the night while they held the Herd to just 3 runs on 9 hits. Starter Steve Johnson threw 5 2/3 innings and gave up two runs on seven hits while also striking out eight Bison batters.
The Herd have cooled off after their hot start to the season which included a nine-game winning streak. They are 4-5 in their last nine games while averaging less than four runs per game.
Jim Negrych was 1 of 4 on the night to drop his average to .412, still tops on the team. The struggling Anthony Gose was 0 for 5 in the leadoff spot. One guy who isn’t struggling is Luis Jimenez who was 3 for 4 with another monster homerun into the parking lot in right field. He is hitting .376 on the season.

The Toronto Blue Jays have released pitcher Trystan Magnuson from their Double-A New Hampshire minor league affiliate. Magnuson struggled mightily this year, but with pitching at a premium most likely will draw the interest of another club.
