The Bulls could not play themselves in to the playoffs, but the Braves are close to playing themselves out. The Norfolk Tides lost both games of a doubleheader to the Charlotte Knights and the Knights moved up to a 1/2 game of Gwinnett. And the last two games of the Knights' season are the Knights and Braves in Charlotte. One of those teams will win the Division.

The Bulls, meanwhile, have come home for their final two games, playing the Norfolk Tides for third place in the South.

Outside the Game —
  • For more commentary on the Gwinnett Braves attendance woes see a late August article from the Gwinnett Daily Post (too close to Atlanta?). 
  • Young (21 year-0ld) starter Greg Harris called up from Charlotte Stone Crabs. [stats]
