5/25: The Rundown

Wade Davis keeps rolling, the Biscuits offense sputters, Chad Bradford returns, and Joseph Cruz shines...

Durham Bulls 6, Lehigh Valley IronPigs 2
Box | Recap
Notes: Durham improved to 27-16... Wade Davis lowered his ERA to 2.66, allowing just an unearned run in 6.2 innings of work. His strikeout-to-walk rate still isn't great, though, at 30-23 on the season... Jon Weber and Justin Ruggiano went deep for the Bulls... Matt Joyce was 1-4 with an RBI...

Jacksonville Suns 4, Montgomery Biscuits 0
Box | Recap
Notes: The Biscuits fell to 22-22... Aneury Rodriguez got his 6th loss despite a very good start, allowing 1 run on 2 hits in 5 innings. He struck out 6 and walked 1... Neal Frontz allowed 3 runs in his inning of relief... The Biscuits offense picked up only 4 hits, though they did draw 5 walks... Desmond Jennings was 0-5, and his batting average is down to .371...

Fort Myers Miracle 3, Charlotte Stone Crabs 2
Box | Recap
Notes: Charlotte fell to 21-18... Darin Downs got his second loss, allowing 3 runs in 5.1 innings... Chad Bradford made his first rehab appearance. He allowed a groundball base hit, induced a double play, and got a groundout for a scoreless inning... Matt Gorgen lowered his ERA to 0.45 with two scoreless frames. He's struck out 25 and walked 8 on the year... No one for Charlotte had multiple hits...

Bowling Green Hot Rods 3, Charleston RiverDogs 2
Box | Recap
Notes: Bowling Green improved to 23-20... Joe Cruz earned his first win of the season, allowing just a run in 5 innings of work. He struck out 6 and walked 2... Tim Beckham went 2-4 with an RBI and two strikeouts... Kyeong Kang was 2-3 with a double and a walk. He has a 1.037 OPS through his first 10 games...

Durham Bulls - RHP Wade Davis: He's 5-1 with a 2.66 ERA, and pitched 6.2 very effective innings yesterday, but the lack of strikeouts has to be a little bit troubling.

Montgomery Biscuits - RHP Anuery Rodriguez: He's been better after a dreadful start. ERA still

Charlotte Stone Crabs - RHP Matt Gorgen: He's just toying with the FSL at this point, ERA down to 0.45.

Bowling Green Hot Rods - LF Kyeong Kang: He's given the Hot Rods offense a needed boost, hitting .364/.462/.576.

Durham Bulls - CF Ray Sadler: 0-4 with three strikeouts.

Montgomery Biscuits - OF Desmond Jennings: Just 1 for his last 13, batting average down to .371

Charlotte Stone Crabs - C Nevin Ashley: 0-4 with two strikeouts.

Bowling Green Hot Rods - Anthony Scelfo, Henry Wrigley, Mike Sheridan, Mike McCormick, Jason Tweedy, and Isaias Velasquez combined to go 0-23.
