Durham Bulls advance to Governors’ Cup finals

By: Staff Report

DURHAM —For the first time since 2014, the Durham Bulls will be playing in the Governors’ Cup Finals.

Earning a 3-1 series win over the Indianapolis Indians on Saturday, Durham will begin its quest for a fifth Governors’ Cup title on Tuesday against the defending champion Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Railriders — the New York Yankees’ affiliate.

The Bulls, who were the South Division champions in the regular season, begin the first two games of the best-of-5 finals at home on Tuesday and Wednesday with the first pitch set for 6:35 p.m.

The RailRiders are seeking back-to-back Governors’ Cup titles, with the Bulls looking for their first title since 2013.

Tickets to both games are priced at $15 plus tax and include an all-you-can-eat concessions menu consisting of hot dogs, hamburgers, french fries, nachos and cheese, pretzels, popcorn and Pepsi products. Gates will open at 5:30 p.m. for both contests.

Additionally, $1 from every ticket purchased will be donated to hurricane relief in the wake of Hurricane Harvey and Hurricane Irma.
