The Durham Bulls only managed two baserunners (and those in the 9th inning) as they were completely dominated by Tides' pitching to be shut out for the 14th time this season.
Oddly enough, however, after three losses, they remain in first place in the South Division of the International League. Standings.
Outside the game —
- Taylor Motter returned to the Bulls without getting an at-bat with the Rays.
- Juniel Querecuto was called up from Montgomery and played 2B last night.
- Richie Shaffer was called up to Tampa Bay and saw duty as a pinch runner in St. Petersburg last night. Apparently to play first base. Lame effort to explain turmoil here.
- The Lehigh Valley Iron Pigs moved into first place in the IL North a day ago for the first time since 2012. [NoiseNation] They slipped back into a tie with the Rail Riders last night.
