Bourgeois sends Durham past Norfolk in finale, 1-0

Posted September 2, 2013

— Jason Bourgeois singled home Kevin Kiermaier with the only run of the game in the 10th inning to lift the Durham Bulls past the Norfolk Tides 1-0 on Monday afternoon.

Bourgeois ended the regular-season by grounding a single under the glove of Tides shortstop Alex Liddi, who was drawn in with runners at first and third in the 10th. With the single, Bourgeois and the Bulls (87-57) may have knocked out the Tides from the post-season as well. Norfolk (77-67) would have advanced to the playoffs for the first time since 2005 with a win, however they do not possess the tie-breaker with Rochester. The Red Wings were leading Scranton as of 3:15 PM ET 12-3, and a Rochester win would elevate them into a tie and the International League wild card berth.

Enny Romero was spectacular in his Triple-A debut for Durham, pitching eight scoreless innings, permitting just four hits and two walks. He outdueled Mike Wright, who was also making his Triple-A debut for Norfolk. Wright pitched 6 2/3 scoreless for the Tides.

Kirby Yates (S, 20) notched his 20th save of the season, stranding Jonathan Schoop at first base by whiffing three straight Tides. CJ Riefenhauser (W, 2-1) notched the win with a perfect ninth inning.

The Bulls open the best-of-five, first round of the Governor's Cup playoffs on Wednesday night against Indianapolis at 7:05 PM ET at the DBAP. Jake Odorizzi (9-6, 3.33) will start the opener for Durham against Indians RH Brandon Cumpton (6-7, 3.32).
