Buzachero demoted, then promoted

Pro baseball player Edward “Bubbie” Buzachero had an up and down and up week.

The former Livingston Academy star began the week with the Buffalo Bisons, and pitched two innings, with a strikeout, in a 3-2 win over the Lehigh Valley Ironpigs on Monday, May 19.

Then two days later, he was sent down to Double-A Akron, where he recorded a save for the Aeros in a 6-4 win over the Altoona Curve on Thursday, May 22.

Two days later he was sent back to Triple-A Buffalo and promptly thrown into a game at Columbus with the Bisons trailing the Clippers 6-3 going into the bottom of the seventh.

The first batter he faced, Larry Broadway, doubled a grounder to right field. Buffalo’s catcher, Yamid Haad then picked off Broadway at second.

Yurendell de Caster flied out to right fielder Bronson Sardinha, and Jorge Padilla grounded back to Buzachero, who threw to first baseman Andy Gonzalez for the third out.

In the bottom of the eighth, Javi Herrera hit a line drive single to center field for the Clippers. Ray Olmedo sacrifice bunted Herrera over to second.

Buzachero struck out Jemel Spearman swinging, then walked Tommy Murphy.

Kory Casto lined out to left fielder Jason Cooper for the Clipper’s final out.
Of 27 pitches thrown in his two innings of work, Buzachero threw 20 for strikes.
