The roundup for May 10th minor league games: DJ Carrasco and Val Pascucci led the Buffalo Bisons to a win; The Binghamton Mets stage a come-from-behind win with Jeurys Familia and Brandon Sage tossing nine strong innings against the New Britain Rock Cats; The St. Lucie Mets could not hold off the potent Lakeland Flying Tigers; The Savannah Sand Gnats used more strong pitching and a little timely hitting to beat the Hickory Crawdads.

Buffalo Bisons
The Bisons received big pitches at the right time and some timely hitting in a 9-5 break-out win against the Yankees on Tuesday night at Coca-Cola Field. DJ Carrasco notched a season-high nine strikeouts and benefited from a six-RBI performance by Herd slugger Valentino Pascucci

In earning his first victory as a Bison, Carrasco danced in and out of trouble through his five-inning effort. The Yankees left a pair of runners on base in the first and second inning and three more in the fourth against the righty. The only runs Scranton/Wilkes-Barre were able to push across came on Jorge Vazquez’s two-run homer in the third.
