Bulls land 3 in Triple-A All-Star Game

The defending Triple-A national champion Durham Bulls will be well represented when the all-star game for the highest level of minor-league baseball is played July 14.

Dan Johnson, Joe Dillon and Elliot Johnson were selected to the International League squad, which will face the Pacific Coast League stars at Coca-Cola Park in Allentown, Pa. Bulls manager Charlie Montoyo will manage the IL all-star team. The game will be televised live on MLB Network (DirecTV channel 213).

Dan Johnson, a left fielder, leads the International League with 63 RBIs and has 18 home runs. Dillon, a second baseman, is batting .295 with five home runs and 31 RBIs. Elliot Johnson, also an infielder, is batting .282 and has 19 stolen bases. His availability for the game is in doubt as he has been on the disabled list with a pulled quad muscle since June 13.

Durham, a Tampa Bay Rays affiliate, began play Wednesday night with a league-best 47-31 record. The Bulls lead the International League's South Division by nine games over second-place Charlotte.
