Matchup: Durham Bulls vs. Buffalo Bisons

The Buffalo Bisons are in town for a five-game set. Today we have two seven-inning games to make up for the game that was rained out up in Buffalo last July 13th, just before the All-Star break. The first game starts at 6:05, but I haven’t noticed much publicity, so we may have the park to ourselves for the first hour. I’d expect Enny Romero to get one of the starts. For the other, hard to say. Maybe Merrill Kelly? 

These two teams are very closely matched, as evidenced by the fact that they have exactly the same won-loss records. Unfortunately for the Bisons, their won-loss record puts them in 4th place in the IL North while the Bulls are 6 games out in front in the South. To win, I’d guess that the Bulls need to get to the Bison’s bullpen as early as possible, since relief pitching seems to be the only advantage the Bulls have, and I’m not sure about that. The Bisons are coming up from Norfolk, after winning 3 out of 4 against the Tides.
