Durham Bulls Win; 23-Hour Rain Delay Coming

We saw some decent baseball last night, mostly. The RailRiders' Brian Keller was awfully good through the first five innings, but things got ugly for him in the 6th and two runners he left behind came home on a Jason Coats home run. That pretty much sealed the game.

For the Bulls, José De León looked awfully good for his 5 innings. And new guy Ryan Thompson, up from Montgomery, had a spectacular AAA debut with the Bulls, striking out the first four batters he saw in the 6th and 7th innings.

Today's game is on a 23-hour rain delay (Hurricane Dorian) and will be played at 6:00 Friday.

Friday is going to be a new day. Looks interesting.

Sure wish they could figure out some useful data to put up on the videoboard. Postseason info isn't very helpful. I know that many of these guys don't have much AAA time this year, maybe summarize all 2019 data from E.g., Dylan Cozens in 2019 was in 29 games has a BA of .183, an OPS of .795, 8 HR,  18 RBI, 6 Stolen Bases. Maybe list the number of teams he's played for (Cozens has played for 4 including 1 game with the Phillies). Or Johnny Davis who got in the game as a pinch-runner for Cozens late in the game and stayed to play center field. In 2019 he's got 54 stolen bases (!) all in the AAA Mexican League, but most recently was with Montgomery. Info like that would be helpful as the game goes along for those of us not listening on the radio.
