The Durham Bulls seem to be back on the winning track.

Hank Blalock had four hits including a homer and a double for four RBI, leading the Bulls to a 10-7 road victory over the Rochester Red Wings on Tuesday night.

The result, Durham’s second straight win, gave the Bulls a split of their four-game series.

Durham had four home runs in the game. Chris Richard and Ryan Shealy each homered and singled, while Joe Dillon also had a solo shot.

Heath Phillips (2-2) was the winning pitcher despite giving up six runs in his five-inning start.

Ryan Mullins (2-1) took the loss in relief for Rochester, which got a homer and a double from Dustin Martin.

The Bulls have Wednesday off before returning home Thursday for the 11 a.m. opener of a four-game series against the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Yankees.
