Charlotte beaten by a former Knight again

LAWRENCEVILLE, Ga. For the second consecutive day, the Charlotte Knights were matched up against one of their former teammates. The outcome was much of the same.

Former Knights pitcher Zach Stewart (6-4, 4.94) tossed six innings, and the Gwinnett Braves used the long ball twice en route to a 10-6 win over the Charlotte Knights on Thursday in the finale of their two-game series.

A night after losing to 2012 Charlotte Knights pitcher Terry Doyle, Stewart also held on to beat his former team.

Stewart pitched into the seventh inning and allowed just two runs over his first six innings of work.

In the seventh, Stewart and the Braves had an 8-2 lead, but the former Knights right-hander failed to get an out. Stewart allowed a leadoff single to Miguel Gonzalez and then an RBI triple to Josh Richmond. The Knights continued their comeback and got a two-run home from Jared Mitchell, which made it an 8-4 game.

Joey Terdoslavich and Edward Salcedo both homered for Gwinnett in the win.
