Posted April 10, 2005 11:00 a.m. EDT

— Jonny Gomes launched a double off the left field wall, scoring Damon Hollins and B.J. Upton to give the Bulls a come-from-behind, 6-5 win over the Toledo Mudhens on Saturday evening at the Durham Bulls Athletic Park. It was the Bulls first win of the season.

Durham got on the board in the first inning with a leadoff home run by Damon Hollins to make the score 1-0. The Bulls upped their lead to 4-0 after Earl Snyder connected for his first home run of the season, a two-run shot in the third inning.

Richmond came back with three in the fifth, another in the seventh and the go-ahead run in the ninth. But then the Bulls stormed back in the bottom of the ninth inning to snatch the victory.

RHP Lee Gardner (1-0) picked up the victory, pitching one-third of an inning with a walk. RHP John Ennis (0-1) took the loss allowing two runs on two hits and a walk.

The Bulls complete their series against the Mud Hens on Sunday afternoon at the Durham Bulls Athletic Park. Tickets are available at www.durhambulls.com or by phone at (919) 956-BULL.
