Durham BullsThe Durham Bulls will wrap up their last home stand of the 2011 season on Tuesday, August 30th, against the Gwynett Braves. The team will then travel to Charlotte for two games against the Knights and finally to Norfolk where the season ends away against the Tides on Labor Day.

The Bulls are on track to make the International League South division play-offs, battling the Braves for first place and the chance to vie for the league title.

Even Hurricane Irene couldn’t dampen the Bulls quest for a fifth straight International League South Division the past weekend. The Saturday & Sunday games went on against the Charlotte Knights, and the Bulls pressed on to victory in both games.
