The home run was a 2-run shot in the 8th that broke a 2-2 tie. The Dirtbag is now 8-13 with a 1.764 OPS. That’s good. Reid Brignac took the collar and went 0-4. Chris Mason struck out 5 in 5 innings.

Columbus 5, Kannapolis 4

NOTES FROM DOWN ON THE FARM…

  • Mike Birling, the GM of the Durham Bulls, is hoping for a season that is less eventful than 2006. He is also hoping for a few more wins after the team finished 64-78 last season.
  • The Biscuits haven’t been around long (only 3 seasons). Still, there has been a noticeable lack of late-inning comeback wins. Last Friday’s victory was only their 6th in franchise history.
