DURHAM, N.C. – Durham starter Tobias Myers and three relievers combined on a two-hit shutout as the Bulls defeated the Gwinnett Stripers 5-0 on Friday night at Durham Bulls Athletic Park.

Mike Brosseau’s two-run home run (7) off Kyle Muller (L, 5-4) staked Durham (80-43) to a 2-0 lead in the second inning. Brett Sullivan went back-to-back with a solo homer (9) to make it 3-0. The Bulls tacked on two more runs against Muller in the third. Gwinnett drops to 68-54 with the loss.

Myers (W, 3-4) spun six scoreless, two-hit innings and struck out eight for Durham. The only hits he allowed were singles to Ryan Goins (1-for-4) and Yolmer Sanchez (1-for-3). Brosseau went 1-for-4 with the homer and two RBIs, and Sullivan went 2-for-4 with a double, homer and one RBI.

The Stripers have not scored a run in their last 16 innings dating back to Sanchez’s RBI single in the seventh inning of Game 1 on Thursday night. Gwinnett is now 1-8 at Durham Bulls Athletic Park this season.
