Durham takes rubber match in Indy 4-1

Posted 10:00 a.m. Friday

The Durham Bulls won the rubber match of a three-game set with the Indianapolis Indians, earning a 4-1 victory Thursday afternoon at Victory Field.

Trailing 1-0 entering the top of the ninth inning, the first four batters of the inning reached safely for Durham, including a two-run single by Curt Casali to put the visitors in front 2-1. Later in the frame, Mike Marjama cracked a two-run homer, giving the Bulls (9-5) a three-run lead.

Indianapolis (4-10) scored its lone run of the game in the bottom of the sixth, when Austin Meadows lined a two-out double that scored Gift Ngoepe.

Marjama led the way for Durham offensively, going 3-4, while Kean Wong tallied a multi-hit game for the second straight day. On the mound, southpaw Ryan Yarbrough turned in his best outing of the season by allowing one run across seven innings, while Ryne Stanek (1-0) earned the win with two scoreless frames. Cody Dickson (0-2) took the loss for the home side, surrendering three runs on two hits without recording an out.

The Bulls' six-game road trip continues Friday, when they open a three-game set against the Louisville Bats. LHP Justin Marks (3-1, 8.10) will take the hill for Durham opposite RHP Sal Romano (0-0, 1.38) for the Bats. First pitch is scheduled for 7:05 p.m.
