( 25th season of Coca-Cola Field came to a close on Tuesday night as the Bisons fell to the Rochester Red Wings, 10-4, in front of 14,697 in downtown Buffalo.

The Bisons will finish the 2012 season with five road games, starting with a two-game set at Frontier Field up the I-90. The Herd will then travel to Lehigh Valley for a three-game season-ending series with the IronPigs.

The Herd finished the year 32-39 at Coca-Cola Field with a 2-4 record during the six extra games in Buffalo against Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

Rochester scored solo runs in the fourth, fifth and sixth innings to erase an early 2-0 Bisons advantage. The fifth inning tally was compliments of former Bisons catcher Rene Rivera, who homered to left field.

Rivera also doubled home a run in a two-run eighth inning. The Wings tacked on five runs in the ninth to pull away from the Herd.

Buffalo's four runs came on two swings of the bat. Matt Tuiasosopo hit a two-run homer off the tent in centerfield in the second inning to give Buffalo a 2-0 lead. For the team's 2012 Community Service Award winner, it was his 12th home run of the season.

After being crowded the team MVP before the game, Fred Lewis hit a two-run shot in the ninth inning.

Collin McHugh started for Buffalo but was on a pitch count and allowed two runs in 4.2 innings of work. He struck out three and walked two.
