The Buffalo Bisons began the first game of their six-outing homestand against the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders with a business-like, 3-1 victory at Sahlen Field.

Addison Barger got the Herd on the board first in the bottom of the first inning on a solo home run to centerfield, Spencer Horwitz scored Ernie Clement on an RBI double (his 20th double and 53rd RBI of the season) in the third and an RBI single by Cameron Eden in the fourth was all Buffalo needed to lock up the win. Austin Wells drove in Scranton’s only run via a sac fly in the sixth.

Zach Thompson finished the outing allowing one run on three hits while striking out three in six innings. Paul Fry, Yosver Zulueta and Zach Pop held the lead for the remaining three innings out of the bullpen.

“I think we’re just clicking on all facets of the game right now,” Horwitz said. “We showed flashes of it in the first half, but if we hit well sometimes we wouldn’t defend well. If we didn’t defend well, we would hit well. It’s finally all starting to click for us.”

The win improved Buffalo to 13-8 in the second half of the International League season and Horwitz, who was named the IL’s player of the week after going 15 for 28 with three homers in their six-game series against the Syracuse Mets, also went two-for-four on the evening.

“It’s just constant work and preparation. Getting in the cage, getting with (hitting coach) Matt Hague, getting with the guys and talking about what we’re seeing at the plate,” Horwitz said. “That’s been the biggest change for me is I’ve been more vocal this year about what other guys are seeing, what I’m seeing and what I’m feeling in the box and it’s really paying off right now.”
