Richard De Los Santos (13-4) tied the club’s Triple-A victory mark while Elliot Johnson went 4-for-4 with a pair of homers as the Bulls topped the homestanding Charlotte Knights 6-2.

The result dropped the Bulls’ magic number to five to clinch the championship in the International League’s South Division.

Johnson, who has 10 homers on the season, added a double and finished the night with three RBI.

Jeffrey Marquez (8-7) took the loss for Charlotte.

The three-game series ends on Wednesday night. Durham’s next home game is Aug. 24 against the Norfolk Tides.

Mudcats have three transactions
The Carolina Mudcats had three transactions on their off day. Catcher Devin Mesoraco, the Cincinnati Reds’ first-round pick in the 2007 draft, was promoted to Louisville along with relief pitcher Jerry Gil. Catcher Chris Denove was sent back down to Carolina from Louisville.
