Game 51, May 27123456789RHE
Buffalo Bisons (Blue Jays)000050200770
Durham Bulls (Rays)90100100x11110

Wrap, Box, Herald-Sun

Wil Myers had an extraordinary 1st inning; Blue Jays reconstruction project Ricky Romero did not. Myers came to bat twice in the inning, hitting a 2-run homer the first time and the bases were loaded for his second at bat, against Romero’s replacement Chad Beck, he hit a double. That’s 5 RBI in one inning. Romero, on the other hand, was charged with 8 earned runs in his ⅔ of an inning and left the game with an ERA of 13.85.

It was a big day for the Bulls: 11 hits, 4 doubles, 1 homer. And yet the Bisons came back in the 5th inning (was Alex Torres left in too long?) with 5 runs and they look to be a very strong team. This is going to be a fun series.

Outside the game —
  • Broadcaster Patrick Kinas reported that Chris Gimenez is going to be out for some time, but apparently isn’t going on the DL.
  • With the win, and Norfolk's loss (their fifth in a row), the Bulls moved into a tie for first place in the IL South.
  • Over at Bull City Summer, Adam Sobsey provides an assessment of this year’s team.
  • Also at Bull City Summer, Emma Miller profiles Bulls’ MC Jatovi McDuffie.

I didn’t get my matchup done before the start of this series, so here it is updated to last night’s game. Obviously, the Bisons are a really hard-hitting team, but they’ve got some problems with their pitching. We saw that last night also.
