Bulls Rally Falls Short At DAP

The Durham Bulls brought the tying run to the plate in the bottom of the ninth inning in the form of Leslie Anderson, but his deep fly to center field was caught to preserve a 7-5 win for the Indianapolis Indians on Monday night at the Historic Durham Athletic Park.

Brandon Guyer led off the Bulls ninth inning with a single and Felipe Lopez then singled to put runners on the corners with no one out.  Guyer scored on a wild pitch cutting the Indians lead to 7-5.  Wood was able to get Chris Carter to pop up to second baseman Josh Harrison, struck out Russ Canzler and then got Anderson to fly out to end the game.  Wood picked up his fifth save of the season.

Carter got the Bulls on the board first with a two-run double off of Indians starter Jose Ascanio in the first inning that scored Ray Olmedo and Ruggiano and gave the Bulls a 2-0 lead.  In the second inning Jose Lobaton hit his third home run of the season to left field to give Durham a 3-2 advantage.  The Bulls added to their lead again in the bottom of the third inning when a Canzler double, Anderson single, and Lobaton single loaded the bases for JJ Furmaniak, who hit a sacrifice fly to give the Bulls a 4-2 lead.

Indianapolis got to Dane De La Rosa (3-2) for five runs on six hits in the seventh and eighth innings.  This included a two-run home run from Adam Lambo in the seventh that tied the game at four.  The Indians added a sacrifice fly in the seventh to grab their first lead of the game 5-4 and would add two more in the eighth.

Garrett Olson (1-0) worked three innings allowing only one hit while walking to and striking out one, to earn his first victory of the season.  Durham will continue their four game series against Indianapolis at the Durham Athletic Park at 7:05 p.m. on Tuesday May 10 when they will send Edgar Gonzalez (2-2 3.69) to the mound against the Rudy Owens (2-3 5.81).
