Where We Stand
Game 104: Bulls 4, Yankees 2
Wrap, Box, Indy Week
I usually put this chart up when the Bulls go on the road, but didn’t get around to it. As they say back where I growed up, “Ain’t that purty?”
The Durham Bulls showed their disdain for small ball last night and it sure sounded great. Home runs accounted for 3 of the runs, while the fourth run was a bit more small ballish (single, double, ground out RBI in the 2nd). Elliot Johnson hit two to go with his one last night, the interesting feature being that he hit one batting left and the other batting right. Matt Joyce got the third one.
We got a full eight innings from Andy Sonnanstine and another very efficient save (10 pitches) from Jason Childers. That’s four saves in five days on 31 pitches. He did slip up and let a runner on base last night. Tsk, tsk.
We’ve got the best record in the International League now.
Trading deadline stuff: Rays Index has a summary of what he considers the possibilities.
Update: It's been pointed out to me that Louisville has a slightly better record than the Bulls, so we have the second-best record in the IL -- sigh. Oh well, we could fix that tonight if all goes well.
