Félix Pie goes 4-for-4, helps Tribe to 14-7 blowout over Bisons

NDIANAPOLIS -- The Indianapolis Indians (29-12) plated a season-high 14 runs on 14 hits as left fielder Felix Pie went 4-for-4 with two triples and two steals, right fielder Brett Carroll blasted two, two-run home runs and first baseman Matt Hague went 3-for-4 with three RBI in a 14-7 drubbing of the Buffalo Bisons (23-15) on Wednesday afternoon at Victory Field.
One day after plating 10 runs on a season-high 15 hits, the Indianapolis offense continued right where they left off with 14 runs on a season-high nine extra-base hits. Overall, six Indians' batters scored at least two runs, while five collected at least two RBI and four knocked multiple hits.

The Tribe quickly jumped on Buffalo starter Dave Bush as Pie roped a one-out single, stole second and came plateward when Hague ripped a base hit. 3B Jared Goedert then continued the first frame outburst with a run-scoring double, before Carroll cleared the bases with a mammoth home run to left to extend the Indians lead to to 4-0.

Buffalo took back a short lived lead with a single score in the third and five more in fifth. Former Indians INF and the IL's current top hitter, Jim Negrych, brought home two of the Bisons' runs with both an RBI single in the third and a run scoring groundout in the fifth. A Tribe wild pitch brought home another fifth-frame score, before 1B Luis Jimenez capped the rally with a two-run longball that pushed Buffalo ahead 6-4 in the top of the fifth.
