File photo by D.L. AndersonDurham Bulls infielder Joe DillonDBAP/DURHAM The Durham Bulls are sailing along nicely atop the International League’s South Division, and they look to keep the momentum going again tonight. It’s Game 2 of a four-game set between the last two Governors’ Cup Champions, and the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Yankees’ only visit to Durham this season unless they meet again in the playoffs. The Yankees won the series in four games in 2008, taking the clincher 20-2 in Durham, while the Bulls won it in three straight last season en route to their first Triple-A National Championship. It’s a hot...

Durham Bulls down Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Yankees in slugfest: Complications

Posted By on Fri, May 7, 2010 at 7:00 AM

Durham BullsAlvin ColinaDBAP/DURHAM—It was already warm and headed for hot when the Durham Bulls' Aneury Rodriguez threw Thursday's first pitch at 11:07 AM. It was the season's second and last "Education Day," but because the Bulls had Wednesday off after an eight-game road trip to Buffalo and Rochester, they looked sprightlier than they did on April 26, when they lost to Gwinnett, 5-4. Well, the hitters looked sprightlier. The pitchers on both teams were tough to watch for most of the long game (almost three and a half hours), because, to put it bluntly, they stunk. The first words out...

Posted By on Thu, May 6, 2010 at 1:36 PM

File photo by Jeremy M. LangeRoy WilliamsAfter the UNC Tar Heels mostly dismal 2009-10 campaign finally came to a close with a 79-68 loss to the University of Dayton Flyers in the NIT finals, Triangle Offense's UNC correspondent Rob Harrington wrote: The focus now shifts to the offseason. To wit, will there be any transfers? (Probably.) Will Ed Davis declare for the NBA Draft? (Almost definitely.) Will Carolina sign any additional recruits for next year? (Depends largely on the answers to the first two questions.) Well, the most commonly floated transfer rumor was quashed when Larry Drew II decided to...
