Tales of Two Pitchers

Wrap, Box, Charlotte Observer

Merrill Kelly did a fine job getting to his league-leading 4th win and stunning ERA of 1.50 over 24 innings. Nice to have a guy who can be depended on for 6 inning, 90 pitch appearances.

Season: 15-6; This Trip: 4-2

On the other hand, Nate Karns is the least dependable guy, so far, in this year’s lineup. Last time out he went 7 innings and held Norfolk to just two hits and no runs. This time he was on life support before the 1st inning was finished and over his two-inning 60 pitch outing he gave up 8 runs for the 8 men he let on base. Not all that different from his first time out.

Still, Charlotte had to break its losing streak some day.

Guess who scored the Bulls only run? Hak-Ju Lee, who got on base on a walk, got to 2B on a Kevin Kiermaier single, then home as Charlotte had trouble figuring out what to do with a Ray Olmedo grounder to short.

Outside the game —

  • The Bulls blog, Hit Bull Win Blog, just started running a series of profiles.
  • Kevin Kiermaier gets his own poster and reveals that his favorite Twitter account is ... his own.
  • Hak-Ju Lee’s return has a nice profile, plus video.
  • Cole Figueroa gets a nicely illustrated love fest.
