Durham 4, Scranton 2

Posted May 21, 2005

— Durham earned a split of a four-game series with Scranton on Friday with a 4-2 victory over the Red Barons.

B.J. Upton's two-run, two-out single capped a three-run seventh to give the Bulls their final lead of the evening.

Eric Munson, who scored the first run of the night on a wild pitch, doubled to center to start the rally. Munson keyed a 12-hit attack by going 3-for-4.

The offense was enough to back Jason Phillips (2-1), who pitched 6.2 strong innings in a homecoming of sorts, as Phillips is a native of Pennsylvania. Joe Nelson, the last of four Durham pitchers who pitched Friday night, got his first save.

The Bulls begin an eight-game homestand on Saturday against Indianapolis at 7 p.m. Tickets are available at
