Charlotte Knights fall 6-5 to Louisville Bats; rain suspends Game 2

LOUISVILLE, Ky. The Charlotte Knights took an early 4-0 lead in the first game of a scheduled doubleheader on Saturday, but a 5-run third inning for pitcher Bobby Doran (2-1) set the stage for a 6-5 loss to the Louisville Bats.

Doran, traded from the Astros in early July, gave up eight hits and six runs in 3 innings. He gave up three doubles and two singles in the fateful third.

Marcus Siemen and Blake Tekotte had two hits for the Knights.

Game 2 was a makeup from a rainout from BB&T Ballpark on June 27. Rain was a factor again, suspending the game with the Bats ahead 4-0 after four innings. The teams will resume play at 4:45 p.m. Sunday, then play their regularly scheduled contest. Charlotte entered Saturday with a five-game win streak, before losing.

BlueClaws 4, Intimidators 3: After Kannapolis battled back in the ninth inning to tie the game, host Lakewood nullified the comeback by scoring the game-winning run with two outs in the bottom of the ninth, beating at FirstEnergy Park. Former N.C. State star Brett Austin collected his first three-hit game for the Intimidators.

Crawdads 5, Shorebirds 3: Hickory scored three runs in the bottom of the third to wipe out a 3-run deficit to tie the game, then added a go-ahead run and an insurance run in the sixth to beat Delmarva. Michael De Leon drove in a run and scored a run in the decisive sixth.
