Bulls bats quiet in third consecutive loss

Posted April 25, 2014

— Tommy Hanson and two Charlotte relievers combined on a three-hitter as the Knights dropped the Durham Bulls to their third straight loss 3-1 on Friday night.

Hanson (W, 1-1) worked five hitless innings in his second start in the Chicago White Sox organization. Frank Francisco and Mitchell Boggs collaborated on the final four innings as the Bulls (15-8) finished up their road trip 4-4.

Enny Romero (L, 2-3) made his only mistake of his six-inning outing in the first inning, hanging a slider to Andy Wilkins, who deposited Romero's 7th pitch of the at-bat into the right-centerfield bleachers to give Charlotte (9-13) a 3-0 lead.

Romero closed out the Knights offense over the next five frames on one hit, but the Bulls offense scuffled for the third straight game.

Over their three losses, the Bulls managed 15 total hits and five runs.

Wilson Betemit drilled a deep home run to right field against Boggs with two outs in the ninth to make it 3-1, but Jerry Sands flied out to end the game.

Kevin Kiermaier singled in the sixth to earn Durham's first hit, but was promptly gunned down by Denis Phipps when Kiermaier's attempt to surprise the Knights at second base failed. Ray Olmedo had the other Bulls hit, a broken bat infield single in the eighth.

The first place Bulls maintained their two game lead in the South with Gwinnett's loss at Columbus.

Mike Montgomery (2-0, 4.15) starts the homestand opener against Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Saturday at 5:05 PM ET.
