Indians Zoom Past Bulls

Game 71: Durham Bulls 1; Indianapolis Indians 9
Season: 42-29; Last 10: 5-5
Wrap, Box

Sometimes, and I’m sure pitcher Heath Phillips would agree, it doesn’t pay to get out of bed in the morning. Phillips had been on a very nice run, but his tendency to give up the home run did him in last night. Four homers is just way too many.

Justin Garcia, just up from the Biscuits, had a decent 2 ⅔ innings.

Let’s see, what else positive can I find to say ... Not much.

For the team:

We are still in great shape. Thirteen games over .500 is an extraordinary performance. Eight games ahead of Charlotte. (Is there anything to the rumor that the Rays ownership is looking to move to Charlotte? No? I thought so.) The Knights, by the way, have won six in a row and are looking much better.

Predicted heat index for tomorrow in the Triangle region is 105°. Might be a good idea to stay in Indianapolis another day or so (as if you had any choice).
