It was yet another rough night on the road for the Triangle’s minor-league baseball teams on Saturday.

The Durham Bulls opened their four-game series at Rochester with a 1-0 loss, the Bulls’ third straight defeat.

Meanwhile the Carolina Mudcats fell 8-5 at Mobile, dropping the decision to the Bay Bears one night after ending an 11-game losing streak.

The Bulls will play the second game of the series at Rochester Sunday afternoon, while the Mudcats will play the fourth of their five-game series at Mobile Sunday night.

Rochester 1, Bulls 0

Richard De Los Santos was solid in his first Triple-A start, but he didn’t get much offensive support in the one-run defeat.

Rochester scored its run when Dustin Martin reached on a one-out fielder’s-choice ball with the bases loaded in the first.

Matt Fox (2-0) was the winner for Rochester.

Bulls outfielder Justin Ruggiano saw his 15-game hitting streak come to an end. Elliot Johnson led the Bulls’ offense with a single and a stolen base.

Mobile 8, Mudcats 5

Ed Easley had a solo homer and six BayBears chipped in multiple-hit games in a 14-hit attack.

Pat McAnaney (1-2) was the winning pitcher while Tom Cochran (2-1) suffered the loss.

Eric Eymann led the Mudcats with two hits including a double with an RBI.
