Durham 5, Ottawa 4

Posted June 5, 2005

— Eric Munson's two-run homer in the ninth inning gave Durham a come-from-behind 5-4 win over Ottawa on Saturday.

Durham (27-30) is 4-2 on a 10-game road trip.

Munson's homer, his ninth, was his second in as many days off Ottawa closer Tim Byrdak (2-1).

It came two batters after a leadoff single by Earl Snyder.

Munson now has hit five of his nine homers off lefties.

Ottawa had taken the lead in the sixth on Ed Rogers' two-out two-run homer.

The Munson homer made a winner out of Durham's third pitcher Franklin Nunez (2-0).

Nunez retired all six batters he faced, and now has retired all 13 batters he's been up against since joining Durham on May 30th.

Jonny Gomes went 3-for-4 with two RBI, a homer, and two runs scored.

Durham meets Ottawa on Sunday at 1:05 p.m., with coverage on WDNC 620 AM beginning at 12:30 p.m.
