Durham Bulls beat Charlotte Knights 10-5

DURHAM Wil Myers, the 2013 AL Rookie of the Year, broke a 4-4 tie in the bottom of the seventh inning with a two-run, two-out home run as the Durham Bulls beat the Charlotte Knights 10-5 Sunday at Durham Bulls Athletic Park.

Myers, of Thomasville, appeared in his sixth game with the Bulls on a major league rehab assignment from Tampa Bay. The home run was his second with Durham as he works his way back from a stress fracture in his right wrist.

C.J. Riefenhauser threw two scoreless innings out of the bullpen for the win.

It was a historic day for Charlotte starter Matt Zaleski, who made his 74th career start with the Knights, a franchise record. Zaleski passed Charlie Haeger for first place and also moved into fourth place in franchise history in strikeouts, passing Jon Rauch. Zaleski pitched two innings and allowed four runs on five hits.

The Knights scored four of their five runs in the fourth inning, highlighted by a Matt Tuiasosopo two-run single. Tuiasosopo had two of Charlotte’s seven hits.

UNC Charlotte standout Tyler Barnette was promoted to the Knights from Class A Kannapolis before the game and made his Class AAA debut. Barnette, of Hickory, was perfect over two innings.
