Hessman haunts Hens with game-winning homer in 10th


BUFFALO - The Mud Hens are well aware of Mike Hessman's home run prowess. After all, he hit a club record 140 of them while wearing a Hens uniform.

This time, however, the Hens got to see what it's like from the opponent's point of view as Hessman hit the game-winning home run in the bottom of the 10th inning off Hens reliever Josh Rainwater in the Bison's 8-7 victory over the Mud Hens on Thursday.

It was Hessman's 16th homer of the season.

Jeff Frazier led the Hens, going 1 of 5 with a homer, his sixth, and three RBIs. Max St-Pierre went 2 of 5 and drove in a pair of runs.

Ruddy Lugo (1-2, 7.11 ERA) started the game for the Hens, giving up four earned runs over five innings.
