One of Jeurys Familia’s best starts of the season and a grand slam by Matt Den Dekker in the 7th helped the Bisons cruise to a 6-0 victory on Tuesday night.
In the 7th inning, following singles by Lucas Duda and Zach Lutz, an RBI double by Adam Loewen, and an intentional walk to Josh Satin, Matt Den Dekker hit a grand slam to put the game out of reach for Lehigh Valley.
Den Dekker had two of the six hits for the Bisons with a single, the grand slam, and four RBI and Adam Loewen went 1-for-3 with a double and RBI. The only other hit was a double by Fred Lewis who went 1-for-4 with a run scored.
The hard-throwing Familia (8-7) displayed great command of his upper-90s fastball by striking out eight while walking just one in his seven shutout innings of work. The right-hander scattered just four hits.
Robert Carson completed the game pitching two wonderful innings of his own, allowing one hit with a walk and one strike out.
