Myers Mashes

Game 52, May 28123456789RHEW-L
Buffalo Bisons  012112100811028-22
Durham Bulls 300010203915332-20

Wrap, Box, Herald-Sun, MiLB

Wil Myers’ two home runs last night should be enough to make believers of us all. I wasn’t able to make the game, but the radio descriptions affirming that the first shot exceeded that of Joel Guzman’s back when Diamond View II was under construction and then Charlie Montoyo’s comment in the Herald-Sun on the second one in the 9th ("That was the hardest line-drive home run that I’ve seen in many years."). Let’s give him his due. Myers must be the real thing.

In just listening to the game, however, it was certainly an odd one. The Bulls put on three runs in the 1st and yet go into their half of the 7th inning down 8-4. Myers boomed his first homer to make it 8-6, setting the stage for his tying shot in the 9th. Shelley Duncan singled (his third hit of the game). The Bulls swapped out runners, bringing in Jason Bourgeois. The Bisons changed pitchers. Bourgeois stole second base. That set up the game wining run on Tim Beckham’s single.

Big night for Vince Belnome: 3 hits (1 double), 2 walks, four runs scored.

The pitching? Well, could have been better, but I wasn’t there to watch it. As mentioned yesterday, this team can really hit. The Bulls have just been able to outhit these last two games.

Outside the game —
  • Jake Odorizzi is being sent back for a pitcher to be named soon. Speculation is Alex Torres or Chris Archer. I’d add Jeff Beliveau to the mix.
