Good-bye to Gwinnett

Wrap, Box

Season: 71-67; Trip: 0-2; Games Left in Season: 6
Wrap, Box, Gwinnett Daily Post

If this sort of play continues, it’s going to be a really short post-season for the Durham Bulls. Consider their performance against the second-worst team in the International League these last two days, a team playing just to stay out of the cellar.

Over those two games in Lawrenceville, the Bulls scored just two runs (both on home runs) on 8 hits (all singles except for the two homers), drew only 5 walks, and struck out 23 times. Two Bulls hitters (Nick Franklin and Hak-Ju Lee) are hovering around the Mendoza line (.200), one is firmly below it (Acosta, .128). Meanwhile Bulls' pitching gave up 15 runs on 27 hits, aided and abetted by five walks, one HBP, and 4 errors. Four of the 15 runs were unearned.

Too much champagne? Maybe. From the video, they had a really good time Monday night.

After last night's game, they were off for a long bus ride to Norfolk. They play four games over the next three days before coming back to Durham.

Outside the Game —
