MiLB Recap – Herd bullpen gets rocked

1 of 3

Mandatory Credit:

Buffalo Bisons vs. Durham Bulls (0-7 Loss)

As the Bisons bats fell silent Tuesday night the bullpen got lit up.  After a decent start by Andrew Albers the bullpen completely imploded and allowed 6 runs.  Albers went 5 innings and only allowed one run while striking out 5.  His solid start was left in the dust as the offense could not get anything going against a dominate pitching performance by the Bulls.  Andrew Bellatti only allowed 2 hits through 5 innings of work.  After that the Bulls just kept on rolling over Bison hitters.

Offensively the Bison attack was non-existent.  They only managed 4 hits for the night.  Meanwhile the Bull attack scored 7 runs on 13 hits.  The attack was lead by former Jays catcher J.P. Arencibia who went 4-5 with 2 home runs and 3 RBI.  Corey Brown also destroyed Bisons pitching by going 3-4 and was only  a homer shy of the cycle.  He collected 2 RBIs also.
