With the bases loaded in the top of the eighth inning, Lehigh Valley’s Gift Ngoepe ripped a bases clearing triple to power the IronPigs to a 5-3 win Saturday afternoon at Sahlen’s Park in downtown Buffalo.
With the loss, the Bisons fall to 10-17 overall while the IronPigs improve to 19-9.
Buffalo jumped on the board first in the top of the 2nd inning thanks to Anthony Alford’s fourth home run of the season.
Trailing 2-1 in the bottom of the seventh, the Herd would pull ahead on a fielder’s choice and sacrifice fly.
They would hold that 3-2 lead until Ngoepe’s drove in the go-ahead runs.
Saturday’s game was also the first of 10 contests broadcast on the CW23. You can find the full list of games on the CW23 here: Buffalo Bisons and Nexstar Broadcasting partner to air 10-game schedule on The CW-23
