Mike McKenry’s RBI in the ninth was all Durham needed to edge Indianapolis on the road, as the Bulls won on the road, 1-0.
The two teams only combined for nine hits, and only had one between them through three innings. The combined nine hits was a season-low for a Durham (47-29) game this season. However, McKenry, who has been on a roll lately, made sure one was enough in the final inning.
Three of the Bulls five hits came in the final inning. Kean Wong singled on a bunt, then advanced to third after a single from Jake Bauers. The next batter, McKenry, scored Wong with a single to left field. Prior to the ninth, Alex Sole had Durham’s only two hits. The Indians (42-34) went three up, three down in the bottom of the ninth, as the Bulls started their eight-game road trip with a narrow win.
Andrew Kittredge (4-1) picked up the win, striking out two batters in one inning of work. Angel Sanchez (2-1) took the loss for the Indians.
