Late Friday: Bulls 7, Mud Hens 6

Shortstop Nick Franklin delivered a two-out, RBI single in the bottom of the 14th inning to give the Durham Bulls a 7-6 win over the Toledo Mud Hens Friday night.

Tied 6-6 entering the bottom of the 14th, Mikie Mahtook led off the frame with a double. After a fly out, intentional walk and another fly out, Franklin ripped a single into the right-centerfield gap, scoring Mahtook and propelling Durham to a sweep of the three-game series.

Jake Elmore (1-0), who played the first 13 innings of the game at third base, earned the win by turning in a 1-2-3 inning in the 14th frame as the Bulls’ pitching was depleted. The Durham bullpen combined for 8 1/3 innings of one-run ball, including seven scoreless frames to end the game. Jeff Ferrell (0-1) suffered the loss for the visitors, allowing Mahtook to score in final inning.

Franklin finished the night 3-for-4 with two RBI, while Shaffer went 3-for-6 with three runs driven in and three runs scored.
