[Via email from the Durham Bulls Director of Media Relations Matt DeMargel.]
A two-run double by Jon Weber and a quality start from Wade Davis weren’t enough for the Bulls as Syracuse pulled out a 3-2 win on Saturday at the Durham Bulls Athletic Park.
Durham got on the board in the fourth inning when Weber launched a two-out double off the center fielders glove to give the Bulls a 2-0 lead. Davis made the lead stand until the seventh inning when Jhonatan Solano singled to right field scoring Mike Morse and Seth Bynum to tie the game at two apiece.
Syracuse took the lead in the eighth inning when Pete Orr tripled and scored on Kory Castro’s sacrifice fly to center.
RHP Marco Estrada (7-4) picked up the win pitching seven innings allowing two runs (none earned) on two hits while striking out three. RHP Jason Childers (9-4) took the loss allowing a run on one hit in an inning and a third.
The Bulls and Chiefs finish their series on Sunday evening at 5:05 PM at the Durham Bulls Athletic Park. Tickets are available at (919) 956-BULL or www.durhambulls.com.
