International League
1994 saw the Bisons go into another power outage, as Rich Aude was the team leader with 15 HR and 79 RBI while batting .281. His 38 doubles however would take away another Brian Dorsett record. Greg Tubbs returned to hit .282 with 22 2B and 13 SB but rookie and future All-Star Tony Womack was the one with the legs... stealing a Coca-Cola Field record 41 bases (besting Greg Tubbs’ 34) while batting .221. John Wehner provided some consistent play batting .303 with 19 2B, 7 HR and 21 SB. Midre Cummings would also bat .311 in 183 At Bats. On the mound Tim Wakefield returned to hone his pitching a little better and became part of a very forgettable starting rotation. Wakefield would set a record for futility going 5-15 with a 5.84 ERA, as the worst winning pct. yet posted by a pitcher. Worse yet was the fact that Scott Scudder (5-10, 5.62) and Rich Robertson (5-10, 3.11) would only win 5 games as well… 15 wins total for the 1-2-3 pitchers combined. Keep in mind that Ray Smith won 15 games last year by himself. Needless to say, this was one forgettable team. They finished with their worst record ever at Coca-Cola Field… last place with a 55-89 (.382) record... Buffalo’s worst winning percentage since 1965. Worse yet, Buffalo was counting on the Pirates (who they were the Triple-A affiliate of) to move here from Pittsburgh, especially after they lost the expansion race to Denver. Now it looked like the Pirates were ready to make a deal with the city of Pittsburgh to build a new ballpark, meaning strike 2 of Buffalo’s chances to get a Major League team.
