In what was said to be the first high-definition national telecast of a minor-league regular-season game, the Durham
Bulls’ shortstop knocked in all of his team’s runs including a two-run walk-off double with one out in the ninth as the Bulls escaped with a hot 3-2 win over the Lehigh Valley IronPigs.

Pinch-hitter Jose Lobaton and Desmond Jennings singled in the ninth to set up Furmaniak’s game-winning hit and drop the loss on Ryan Vogelsong (2-5).

Darin Downs was the winner in his Triple-A debut, taking over after a 7 1/3-inning quality start from Richard De Los Santos.

Melvin Dorta led the Iron Pigs, which lost the series 3 games to 1, with three hits including an RBI double.

The Bulls continue their long homestand at Durham Bulls Athletic Park with the opener of a four-game series with the Louisville Bats on Tuesday night.
