Hak-Ju Lee hit a home run. Pitchers got 12 Ks and no BB. Not quite good enough.
Third loss in a row, and the Bulls outhit their opponents in every game.
The last time the Bulls won a game in Knights Stadium was back in August of 2011. It, too, was a game won by late-inning heroics. Some interesting names in the story. It looks like the Bulls have just one pitcher from that team still on the roster (Alex Torres) and just one position player from this year (Leslie Anderson) came to bat in that game.
The heroics last night came in the top of the 9th with Wil Myers coming up with a 2-out bases-loaded single that drove in two runs. His hit was followed by a Leslie Anderson single that drove in another run. That would be enough.
Outside the game
- Pitcher Mike Montgomery is off to Florida where he will be under the eye of the Tampa Bay trainer/rehabber crew. He remains on the 7-day DL.
- Catcher Juan Apodaca came off the DL and started the first game in Charlotte.
- This is the last year that the Knights will be playing in Knight Stadium. This is the website for their new place which will be in downtown Charlotte. This will bring in an era where the Charlotte Knights will be playing baseball in … Charlotte!
