Some neat things are happening down on the farm. Again, we will summarize everything next week, but a quick note that can't wait...Last night, trailing 4-1 in the 9th, the Durham Bulls drew 3 straight walks to load the bases. Melvin Emanuel Upton (also known as B.J.) hit the first pitch he saw over the left field fence for a walk-off grand slam, and a 5-4 victory over the Toledo Mud Hens. It was his first home run of the season as Upton has struggled at the plate (.229-1-7-8).
