Perhaps it's because Dan Johnson (and Fernando Perez, Justin Ruggiano et al.) are in Tampa now, but the Bulls have fallen behind two games to none in the best-of-five International League finals against the Scranton/ Wilkes-Barre Yankees. In Pennsylvania last night, the Bulls lost 1-0 in a 13-inning pitching duel.
Tonight, the teams take the field at Durham Bulls Athletic Park at 7:05 p.m. In a clash of multimillion-dollar pitching prospects, Jeff Niemann starts for the Bulls while the Yankees' dubious $20 million investment, Kei Igawa, starts for the visiting nine.
