SUSPENDED

BULLS, WITHOUT A HIT THROUGH 3, TRAIL 1-0 AS RAIN SLAMS DBAP

Heavy downpours and lightning forced the suspension of the Durham Bulls game Thursday night with the Rochester Red Wings leading 1-0 in the bottom of the fourth inning at Durham Bulls Athletic Park

The game was officially suspended after a 50-minute rain delay that began shortly after 8 p.m. It will be made up in Rochester sometime during a four-game series Aug. 11-14 since the Red Wings do not return to the DBAP this season.

The Bulls open a four-game homestand tonight (7:05 p.m., WDNC 620-AM) against the Toledo Mud Hens. Lefty all-star Mike Montgomery (9-2, 3.63) gets the call on the mound against Mud Hens’ lefty Robbie Ray (5-4, 3.65).

The series against the Mud Hens continues at 7:05 p.m. Saturday, 5:05 p.m. Sunday and 7:05 p.m. Monday.

Updated with tonight's pre-game Mud Hens-Bulls notes ...
