Elliot Johnson led the charge with three hits, including an RBI double in a four-run eighth inning, as the Durham Bulls opened their four-game road series against the Syracuse Chiefs with a 4-0 victory.

Things didn’t go as well for the Carolina Mudcats on Friday night, as they fell 13-4 in the finale of their five-game road set with the Jacksonville Suns, who clubbed a Southern League record-tying seven homers in the game.

The Bulls play the second game against Syracuse on Saturday, then two more before returning home on Tuesday night against the Buffalo Bisons.

The Mudcats open a five-game series at Chattanooga on Saturday night.
