Bats Bash Bulls - Twice - Come on Home

Wrap, Box, Louisville Courier-Journal

If ever you wanted confirmation that Bulls fans and Rays management live in different universes, check out Hellickson’s and Maddon’s remarks here. After the Bulls put up a 3-spot for him, Hellickson gave up 7 runs and dug a hole the Bulls could not get out of.

Season: 43-32; Road Trip: 5-5

And then Nate Karns, who had not pitched in 10 days, for reasons I either missed or were not reported, did not seem to appreciate the rest, 8 runs in 3 innings did a bit of damage to his ERA. And then Merrill Kelly had a very rare bad outing.

All of which must have been frustrating for the hitters. They had one of their best days of the year: 14 hits, 4 doubles, 2 triples, 22 total bases, 8 runs, and still lost the game?

It was a long trip and Louisville is looking better than they have been all year. The Bulls get a day off and we get baseball back in Durham. Better new all around.

Outside the game —
  • Nice long story about reliever C. J. Riefenhauser in DNA of Sports.

  1. I think they said they skipped Karns because of tightness of some sort.
