Durham Bulls Playoff BoundThe Bulls are back in the postseason! After winning five of the season’s final seven games, the Bulls have claimed the International League Wild Card spot, and are advancing to the Governors’ Cup playoffs for the 16th time in 22 seasons as a Triple-A team!

With a win Monday afternoon, September 2, 2019, the Durham Bulls clinched their third consecutive playoff spot. The Bulls entered Monday – which marked the final day of the regular season – tied with the Charlotte Knights for the Wild Card lead.

Durham held the tiebreaker over Charlotte (head-to-head matchup), meaning a win or Charlotte loss on Monday guaranteed the Bulls the International League Wild Card spot.

The First Round of the playoffs opens Wednesday at the DBAP, as the Bulls will host Games 1 and 2. The DBAP is once again offering all-you-can-eat tickets to any playoff game, with tickets starting at $17.
