International League
(Triple-A)
YER OUT! Scott Potter had called Greg Edge out at plate and the Bisons lost the nearly miracle comeback by a score of 9-8. The Bisons to this day still claim that it was the wrong call. The Bisons would have to come back the next day with Rick Reed on the mound but by the 1st inning, Reedís back had tightened up. The bullpen had to be called in to finish the ballgame and the Zephyrs feasted on the relievers, beating the Bisons 12-3 to steal the pennant and send Buffalo home empty handed. The loss of the championship to Denver was tough enough to endure, but the worst was yet to come. The Zephyrs had defeated the Bisons in another way that would haunt Buffalo forever. Along with winning the Championship pennant, the Zephyrs had won the National League expansion as well. It would be the Denver Zephyrs and not the Bisons "promoted" to the Major Leagues. The Zephyrs would take the grand spotlight as Americaís newest Major League team along with the Florida Marlins. The Denver Zephyrs would end their Triple-A reign at Mile High Stadium as Champions and be reborn the following season as the Colorado Rockies. Defeated in every possible way, the Bisons did their best to try to regroup.
