The roundup for May 12th minor league games: Jesus Montero, Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Yankees, delivers in the ninth to beat the Buffalo Bisons; the Binghamton Mets drop series in 10-8 slugfest; Stoner and McHugh blank Flying Tigers; Crawdads Survive the Savannah Gnats 1-0 in 13 innings.

Buffalo Bisons
The Bisons looked like they were headed on a roadtrip with a three-game winning streak. That is until Jesus Montero finally broke through against the Herd.

Held in check for most of the four-game series in Buffalo, the Yankees top prospect launched a three-run home run in the top of the eighth inning to give Scranton/Wilkes-Barre the 5-3 win over the Herd on Thursday afternoon from Coca-Cola Field. The defeat ended the Herd’s two-game win streak and denied them their first series win of the season.
