BUFFALO 8, NORFOLK 7: Fernando Cabrera recorded his International League-leading 15th save, in 15 attempts, by recording the final four outs. He allowed a ninth-inning run on a bases-loaded walk to Nate McLouth, but stranded the bases full of Tides by getting Chris Robinson to ground out. The Tides committed six errors on the game, including three in the decisive seventh, when the Bisons scored three runs. After Sean Kazmar flied out to lead off for the Bisons that inning, newly promoted Matt den Dekker doubled. Right fielder Jai Miller's attempt to throw out den Dekker went offline, moving the speedy center fielder to third. Corey Wimberly then drove in den Dekker with a single to even the score at 6. Fred Lewis then grounded into a would-be double play. But Lewis reached second after Tides first baseman Jamie Hoffmann failed to make the catch. Josh Satin followed with routine fly ball, but Miller bobbled it. Lewis scored on the error and Satin advanced to third. Zach Phillips then tossed a wild pitch to score Satin as the Bisons took an 8-6 lead. The Herd earlier had scored on Kazmar's two-run double and Satin's two-run homer. Den Dekker in his Bisons debut manned center field, led off and went 1-for-4 with a walk and run scored. Dustin Martin was transferred from Buffalo to Binghamton to make room for den Dekker. Garrett Olson lasted 4 1/3 innings -- making him the fourth Bisons pitcher in the past five games to fail to complete five innings. Pedro Beato (3-0) contributed 1 2/3 scoreless relief innings. Box
