19-Hit Attack Leads Bulls Past Rochester, 10-7

Posted May 16, 2013

— Behind a season-high 19 hits, the Durham Bulls won their third straight game, defeating the Rochester Red Wings 10-7 at Frontier Field on Wednesday night.

Tim Beckham and Chris Gimenez each contributed four hits, with Beckham hitting his first homer of the season to spur the Bulls (25-15) 10 games over .500 for the third time this season.

With the game tied 6-6 in the seventh, Jason Bourgeois grounded a double down the left field line to score Gimenez and Beckham, giving the Bulls their fourth lead of the game. Beckham hit a two-run homer in the ninth for a 10-6 Durham lead.

The Red Wings were led by Chris Colabello, who hit a pair of two-run homers against Jake Odorizzi, and also drove in a fifth run a double in the first inning.

Durham, with eight extra base hits, scored a run in each of the first three innings of the game. Mike Fontenot tripled in the first and scored on a grounder by Wil Myers. In the second, Bourgeois hit a sacrifice fly to bring home Gimenez for a 2-1 lead. Then in the third, a Shelley Duncan hit a deep sacrifice fly to score Myers from third.

The Bulls batted around in the fifth, scoring three times to assume a 6-3 lead before the Red Wings (15-25) tied the game in the lower half.

Steve Geltz (W, 2-0) earned the win in relief of Jake Odorizzi, retiring all eight hitters he faced. Odorizzi worked 5 1/3 innings, allowing six hits and a season high six runs.

Of the Bulls' 19 hits, eight were extra bases, including a pair of doubles by Duncan.

The series continues on Thursday afternoon at 3:35 PM ET with Chris Archer making the start for the Bulls.
