Ten unanswered runs lift Bulls past Chiefs, 13-3

Posted April 28, 2013

— Ten unanswered runs in the last three innings shot the Durham Bulls past the Syracuse Chiefs 13-3 on Sunday afternoon at NBT Bank Stadium.

The Bulls (16-8) scored six unearned runs in the seventh inning, taking advantage of two errors by Chiefs' shortstop Zach Walters to take command. With runners at first and second and one out, Tim Beckham hit a slow hopper to short, with Walters tossing the ball over his third baseman's head trying for a force out. Brandon Guyer scored on the play to give the Bulls a 4-3 lead. After a walk to load the bases, Jason Bourgeois hit a hard grounder to Walters, who short-hopped his catcher attempting to force out Cole Figueroa at home. The error made it 5-3 Bulls, then the gates opened up. Wil Myers flared a two-run single to right, with Leslie Anderson doubling home a run to make it 8-3. Vince Belnome grounded an RBI-single to center to cap the six-run, 12-batter inning.

Belnome collected his second four-hit game in a week, driving in four runs. He lifted his average from .328 to .364 and is now 18 for his last 37. His fourth home run came with two outs and two on in the fourth inning, taking out Ross Ohlendorf (L, 2-3) to give the Bulls a 3-2 advantage.

JD Martin (W, 2-1) worked six innings, scattering 10 hits while fanning six to earn his second straight victory.

Beckham, Figueroa and Bourgeois each had two hits for Durham. The Bulls 13 runs is a season high.

Jake Odorizzi (1-0, 4.09) starts against Chris Young (0-0, 12.46) Monday night at 7:00 PM ET.
