Archer, Myers pace Bulls over Chiefs, 7-1

Posted April 30, 2013

— Chris Archer worked six shutout innings to lead the Durham Bulls to a series-clinching 7-1 win over the Syracuse Chiefs on Tuesday afternoon.

Archer (W, 4-1), who became the fourth pitcher in the I.L. to reach four victories, shook off a batted ball off of his right shin in the second inning, staying in the game and tossing his best outing of the year. Archer fanned seven, walked two and surrendered just four hits.

The Bulls (18-8) reached 10 games over .500 for the first time this season thanks to an eight-hit, targeted attack. In the first, Leslie Anderson singled to center to score Brandon Guyer from second base for a 1-0 lead.

Tim Beckham delivered a quality at-bat resulting in a sacrifice fly in the fourth against Yunesky Maya (L, 0-3) to push the lead to 2-0. Then the Bulls batted around against Maya and the Chiefs (9-16) in the sixth to put the game away.

Wil Myers launched an 0-2 pitch from Maya over the left-centerfield wall for his third homer of the season. After an Anderson double and intentional walk, Cole Figueroa singled against lefty reliever Fernando Abad to make it 4-0. Craig Albernaz then ripped a two-run double over the head of Jeff Kobernus in left field to put the Bulls up 6-0.

The Chiefs scored their first run in 21 innings in the eighth against Jeff Beliveau, but that would be all the Syracuse offense mustered.

Anderson collected three of Durham's nine hits, with Guyer going 2-5.

The Bulls road trip continues after an off-day Wednesday in Pawtucket, RI against the Pawtucket Red Sox. Alex Torres (2-0, 1.29) starts against Alfredo Aceves at 6:15 PM ET from McCoy Stadium.
