Buffalo Bisons 1 – Durham Bulls 2 A good pitchers duel down in Durham. All of the runs in the game came on just two swings of the bat. Dylan Owen got another start and pitched very well. He cruised through the first two innings, but it was a double and then two-run home run […]

Could Ike’s Injury Have Cost Him An All-Star Appearance?

It may seem like a distant memory at this point, but earlier this season, before the unfortunate collision with David Wright that has left him in a boot for the past month, Ike Davis was off to one hell of a season. If Wright had not barreled into Davis in Colorado, especially now after Albert Pujols out with a broken arm, could the […]
