BUFFALO, N.Y. -- Third baseman Jason Leblebijian and catcher Danny Jansen represented the Bisons at the 2018 Triple-A All-Star Game in Columbus Wednesday night.  
The duo hit back-to-back in the starting lineup for the International League All-Stars. 
Leblebijian, playing in his second consecutive All-Star game, worked a 3-2 count while fouling off multiple pitches in a ten-pitch at-bat in the second. He led off the inning by drawing a walk. 
In the fourth, he got into another full count but struck out looking and in the fifth, he hit a ball on the ground through the hole between shortstop and third base for an RBI-single. The base knock helped cut the team's deficit to 8-5. Later in the frame, Leblebijian scored on a base hit.
Leblebijian also played five innings in the field and recorded an assist on a groundout.
In Jansen's only at-bat, he got himself into a 2-1 hitter's count with two runners aboard and two outs. He popped out to the third baseman. Jansen played three full innings in the field behind the plate.
The International League All-Stars fell to the Pacific Coast League All-Stars by a final score of 12-7.
