Buzachero helps Buffalo Bisons in Monday win over Pawtucket

Overton County’s Edward “Bubbie” Buzachero helped the Buffalo Bisons in a 10-3 road win over the Pawtucket Red Sox on Monday, June 9.

Buzachero came into the game to pitch the bottom of the 9th inning and struck out the first batter he faced, Dusty Brown, swinging.

Keith Ginter then reached base on a fielding error by third baseman Aaron Herr.

Buzachero struck out Chad Spann swinging then prompted Gil Velazquez to fly out to right fielder Todd Linden to end the game.

The right-handed pitcher from Livingston threw 10 of 16 pitches for strikes and reduced his earned run average to 3.56 for the season.

A blown save marked Buzachero’s previous outing.

With the Bisons leading the Rochester Red Wings 3-1 at home on Friday, June 6, Buzachero was brought into the game to close out the game and earn a save. Instead, Garrett Jones hit a ground ball single and Howie Clark hit a home run to tie the game. Buzachero got out of the inning with a fly out and two pop-ups, but the damage was done. Rochester pushed across a run in the top of the 11th and held on to win 4-3.

The former Livingston Academy standout earned a win on Wednesday, June 4 at Buffalo against those same Rochester Red Wings.

Rochester led 6-0 when Buzachero took the mound to pitch the top of the 9th inning. He got the first out of the inning on a “come-backer” off the bat of Jose Morales, whom he threw out at first base.

Sergio Santos then hit a soft liner to second baseman Josh Barfield, and Chris Basak popped out to first baseman Michael Aubrey in foul territory.
Buffalo put 6 runs on the board in the bottom of the inning to tie the game and force extra innings.

Buzachero walked Tommy Watkins to start the 10th inning, then struck out Jason Pirdle.

Darnell McDonald flew out to center fielder Brad Snyder for the second out.

Garrett Jones drew a walk, then Howie Clark hit a grounder through to left field and Watkins scored. Jones moved to third base and Clark cruised into second on the throw in.

Buzachero then hit Randy Ruiz with a pitch, which loaded the bases. The inning ended with Jose Morales flying out to center fielder Brad Snyder.

Buzachero went from being tagged with a loss to being the winning pitcher when the Bisons pushed across 2 runs in the bottom of the 10th to win 8-7.
Half of Buzachero’s 34 pitches thrown were for strikes.
