OXFORD, Ohio -- Two Buffalo pitchers held Miami to only five hits, all singles, while the Bulls' offense totalled 13 hits in 12-0 victory over the RedHawks Sunday afternoon at McKie Field. The win gave Buffalo its eighth straight series win in 2013 after the teams split the first two games yesterday.
After each team had one baserunner in the first two innings, the Bulls got all the runs they would need in the third. The first two batters singled to start the rally, then, after an out, a blast over the right field fence made the score 3-0.
Buffalo (29-20, 17-6) added two runs in the fifth for a 5-0 lead, then broke the game open late. It added a run in the seventh, four in the eighth and two more in the ninth.
MIami had hits in five consecutive innings from the second to the sixth, but all were singles. Five different players registered the hits -- Dan Walsh, Jake Romano, Max Andresen, Chad Sedio and Kendall Johnson. Only Romano reached second base, and he was stranded there.
Nathan Williams took the loss to fall to 4-3. He allowed five runs and six hits in five innings. Mike Burke improved to 7-2 with the win. He gave up all five Miami hits, while striking out five, in seven innings of work.
Miami (23-27, 12-12) wraps up the regular season next weekend when it hosts rival Ohio Thursday to Saturday at McKie Field.
