Season: 43-33; Home Stand: 0-1; Streak: 0-4
Wrap, Box, Herald-Sun
The Durham Bulls returned home to a field that looks as bad as I’ve ever seen it in my time going to the DBAP. Scott Strickland will surely have it in shape by the All-Star game, but (and this is coming from someone who has vast experience in killing grass and other forms of plant life) the turf has a long way to go. I did not get a chance to chat with him, and I’m sure he got tired of answering questions last night, but it’s ugly out there.
As was the pitching. Matt Andriese had his worst night of the year, only going four innings as he served up 6 runs (including 2 homers). When he led off the 5th inning by giving up two doubles, C.J. Riefenhauser came in to throw some gasoline on the fire. Not a good night for either pitcher.
The Bulls are cold. We can hope Mike Montgomery will help turn things around today.
