Matchup: Durham Bulls vs. Indianapolis Indians

This is the best matchup of the season so far.

Indianapolis has a 10½ game lead in the West Division of the International League and just swept the #2 team, Columbus, at Columbus. Their hitters are hot, 40 runs on 61 hits in that series. Consequently, while their run production seems low overall, lately it has been surging.

They have the best pitching in the IL, although their best reliever, former Bull Ryan Reid, just got called up to the Pirates. The Bulls have the best hitting, by batting average; however, a sort by OPS puts the Bulls #2 and the Indians just behind them at #3. What is hard to judge for either team is the impact of roster roiling. Should be fun.

The South Division

The Tides lost last night. The Bulls have pulled ahead to lead them by 3 games.
