Durham needs 11 to win Triple-A championship

Rashad Eldridge scored on a wild pitch with none out in the 11th to give the Durham Bulls a 5-4 win over the Memphis Redbirds in the Triple-A championship game in Oklahoma City.

Catcher Michel Hernandez doubled to lead off the 11th and Eldridge pinch-ran for him. Eldridge moved to third on a wild pitch and, after an intentional walk, scored on another wild pitch to win it.

Starting pitcher Jeremy Hellickson threw five shutout innings, while Desmond Jennings was 3-for-5 for the Bulls. Sean Rodriguez homered and Ray Olmedo was 2-for-3 with two walks, two runs scored and an RBI.

Mitch Talbot threw a perfect top of the 11th for the win.
