Dan Johnson gave the Durham Bulls a jump start in the fourth inning as the International League’s hottest team routed the host Charlotte Knights for the second straight day.

Johnson’s three-run homer broke a scoreless tie, sparking the Bulls to an 11-0 victory at Knights Stadium in the second of a four-game, two-city series.

Johnson, who finished with three hits and four RBI, leads the IL with six homers. Ryan Shealy doubled and singled for four RBI for the Bulls, while Joe Dillon added a double and two singles for one RBI and everyone in the Bulls’ lineup scored.

Aneury Rodriguez went seven strong innings and was the winning pitcher in his Triple-A debut, while Jeffrey Marquez (1-2) took the loss.
