Darin Downs (3-1) was the winning pitcher while Brian Gordon (1-2) took the loss.

The Bulls scored their only run in regulation in the sixth as Angel Chavez led off with a single, followed by bunt singles from Jose Lobaton and Fernando Perez and an RBI grounder from Desmond Jennings.

John Mayberry’s homer in the ninth for Lehigh Valley sent the game into extra innings.

The series finale is on Friday, after which the Bulls will visit Pawtucket for four before returning home Aug. 5 against Indianapolis.
