Bisons' comeback falls short in 6-5 loss to Braves

Dwight Smith Jr. homers, has three hits in loss

By Robby Johnson | May 23, 2017 10:40 PM ET

The Bisons began their week-long road trip with a 6-5 loss to Gwinnett on Tuesday night at Coolray Field. A David Freitas homer in the fourth inning helped the Braves win the first of a three-game series with the Herd.

With the game tied at three in the fourth inning, Freitas drove a fly ball to left field for only his second home run of the season. The homer came with one out on the board and also scored Carlos Franco, giving the Braves a 5-3 advantage. Franco got on base after T.J. House walked him on a full count and then reached second after a wild pitch.

The eventual game-winning run came in the same inning when Mel Rojas Jr. grounded into a force out to score Ozzie Albies from third.

With 2 in the ninth, PawSox win 5-3

Herd rallies once, but falls short in defeat

By Robby Johnson | May 20, 2017 4:49 PM ET

Playing from behind for much of the day, the Bisons dropped a 5-3 decision to the Red Sox on Saturday afternoon at Coca-Cola field. A double to left field from Pawtucket's Brian Bogusevic all but sealed the game up in the top half of the ninth inning for the visitors.

Bogusevic's late-game RBI was set up after a force-out situation that landed Ryan Court on first base. Court was able to make it all the way home to give the Red Sox the game-winning run, snapping a 3-3 tie. Pawtucket then added an insurance run from Bogusevic after Buffalo's Alex Monsalve gave up a passed ball with Tim Roberson batting.

Bisons win wild one on Tellez's homer, 7-5

Tellez hits walk-off blast in 13-inning marathon

By Lucas Sperduti | May 20, 2017 12:51 AM ET

This game had everything!

A four hour, and 19-minute marathon began with David Price on the hill for Pawtucket and ended with Rowdy Tellez's 13th-inning home run off an infielder. In the end, just a few minutes before the clock struck midnight, the Bisons came away with a 7-5 victory in front of a fridaynightbash! crowd of 12,380 at Coca-Cola Field.

Tellez took advantage of Red Sox second baseman Mike Miller on the mound for his second inning of work. The Herd's first baseman drove a two-run game-winning homer down the right field line, just clearing the wall.
