Durham Bulls beat Syracuse Chiefs again: El Tiempo

Posted By on Sat, May 7, 2011 at 12:06 AM

www.cafepress.comDBAP/ DURHAM—The Bulls beat the Syracuse Chiefs, 3-1, thanks mostly to strong pitching from Alex Cobb, who threw 6 1/3 innings of one-run ball in his first start since returning to Durham from Tampa, where he made a spot start on May 1. The Bulls won the game with a tense two-run rally in the bottom of the seventh inning, and sealed it with scoreless relief from the Durham bullpen. The Spanish word tiempo can mean either "time" or "weather," among other things, depending on how it's used. The latter was very much on everyone's mind yesterday. The Triangle had...

Durham Bulls Road Roundup, Vol. 2: Facts of Life

Posted By on Wed, May 4, 2011 at 6:00 AM

Print by Rick ShortThe Durham Bulls returned home last night from a three-city, 11-game road trip on which they went 5-6. There's an old baseball formula that says you should aim to win three fourths of your home games and half of your road games. So far this season, the Bulls are 6-3 at home, 9-9 on the road. They are very, very close to the exact numbers prescribed by the formula, which would result in a sparkling .625 winning percentage over the course of a season. But the Bulls are just 15-12, a .556 winning percentage, and in a...

Carolina Railhawks and NSC Minn Stars amiss in the wind, draw 1-1

Posted By on Sun, May 1, 2011 at 12:06 AM

Carolina RailHawksEtienne BarbaraWEBCAST - In the Carolina RailHawks first road match this season, it was Aeolus who made the best case for Man/God of the Match, as the blustery skies over Blaine, Minn., figured strongly in the RailHawks 1-1 draw with the NSC Minnesota Stars. A steady north current wreaked havoc with the strategy and execution of both teams, chiefly the RailHawks and the first half and the Stars in the second half. However, ultimately it was two defensive mishaps by each club that yielded the counterbalancing goals. The first half was a rather blasé affair. Cory Elenio and Stephen...
