Sanders Does Little in Debut; SkyChiefs Still Beat Bulls

Posted Updated

SYRACUSE, NEW YORK — Deion Sanders didn't do much for his new team last night, but a two-run homer and three RBIs by Cole Liniak were enough to carry his Syracuse SkyChiefs over the Durham Bulls.

Durham lost 4-1.

Terrell Lowery doubled and scored Durham's only run on Pat Borders' single in the seventh.

Liniak said after the game it was exciting to have a star like Sanders on the team.

Sanders didn't play like a star. He was zero-for-four batting leadoff as a designated hitter.

Sanders said in a news conference after the game that he was happy to be playing baseball again and he was having fun.
