BUFFALO 5, DURHAM 4: The Bisons won a wild game on Tuesday night, capped off by Jordany Valdespin's walk-off game-winning hit. The umpires were forced to halt the game in the middle of Valdespin's at-bat in the bottom of the ninth, resulting in a 49-minute delay before he delivered in the clutch. Prior to that, Collin McHugh had started the game and pitched 6 1/3 innings, giving up just one run on four hits with 10 strikeouts, but the Buffalo bullpen blew the lead before Valdespin's heroics.
