BluGrass Baseball POG: Chris Bisson — Bisson was 2-5 with two runs scored and four RBI in the game. The All-American second baseman put the Cats ahead for good with his sixth-inning three-run home run and added an RBI triple in the eighth. Bisson, a Canadian, was also quite happy after the game when I told him Canada was up 1-0 in the gold medal hockey game.
