Notes from Down on the Farm

  • Triangle Offense has all the details on the Bulls comeback. They also note that Shawn Riggans is day-to-day with a ribcage injury and was not able to play last night. They spoke with Joe Nelson about his demotion. Nelson was adamant that his arm is healthy and that he is fighting a mechanical issue. He felt that he discovered the flaw prior to last night’s game and is excited about how well he threw. [Triangle Offense]

    I think Desmond Jennings deserves credit for a great decision and at bat in the 9th inning comeback for the Bulls. Batting as the tying run in a game like that, a lot of players would be hacking away and looking to make a heroic play. DJ put down the prettiest bunt for a hit I have seen in a long time. Also, Brignac should get credit for his hustle as well. He was going full steam from 2nd on what looked like an easy double play to end the inning. As it was, it only beat the throw home by a spit second.

    That inning was the most fun I have had at a Bulls game in a while.

    BTW, the Bulls website has the video of the hits in that 9th inning comeback last night. Worth a quick look.
