Bulls suspended (rain) Tuesday after twinbill loss Monday

Aug. 13, 2014 @ 04:04 PM

Tuesday night's Durham Bulls at Rochester Red Wings game was suspended because of rain. It will be made up as part of a doubleheader Wednesday...

Meanwhile, on Monday, reigning American League Rookie of the Year was on deck with two outs in the seventh inning waiting for a shot to generate two more runs in Game 2 of a Triple-A doubleheader between Durham and Rochester.

But Tampa Bay Rays right-fielder Wil Myers, on the road with the Bulls rehabbing the right wrist he fractured in May, didn’t get back to the plate after Bulls left-fielder Robby Price popped out to end the game.

Rochester won 5-4. Game 2 of the doubleheader was seven innings instead of nine.

In Game 1, the Bulls didn’t get a hit against the Red Wings in a 3-0 loss that concluded a July 24 contest that was suspended because of rain.

On Sunday, Myers was in Durham’s lineup as a designated hitter during a loss to Buffalo at Durham Bulls Athletic Park. He was 1 for 3.

On Monday at Rochester, Myers played right field for the Bulls and was 2 for 3 at the plate, crushing a grand slam in the fifth inning to bring the Bulls within one run of the Red Wings.

That’s what created the intrigue in the seventh, the potential for Myers to make another big delivery.

Myers ended up getting a scare when he nearly was hit by a ball that Price fouled in his direction. Myers actually left the on-deck circle and waited his turn in the dugout.

Pitcher Mike Montgomery (L, 9-5) started for the Bulls.

Virgil Vasquez (W, 1-0) gave up the grand slam to Myers. Vasquez is a former pitcher for the Bulls.

In Game 1, Logan Darnell (W, 6-5) tossed six no-hit innings behind Trevor May’s three hitless innings to complete the fourth no-hitter against the Bulls in their Triple-A history.

Darnell retired the first 16 hitters he faced when the game resumed before walking Hak-Ju Lee with one out in the ninth. Justin Christian grounded into a double play that sealed the no-hitter and added a chink to the record of Bulls pitcher Alex Colome (L, 4-4).

The series continues today with Enny Romero (5-11, 5.01) opposing Sean Gilmartin (2-3, 3.57) at 7:05 p.m in Rochester.
