The Gwinnett Braves got past the Charlotte Knights, 6-0, on Friday in a rain-shortened game from BB&T Ballpark.
With the Knights down by a score of 6-0 after five full innings, the two teams went into a rain delay at the start of the top of the sixth inning. The game was officially called at 9:46 p.m. after a one-hour and 17-minute rain delay.
Gwinnett RHP Chris Ellis (1-3, 6.05) allowed just four hits over five scoreless innings to earn the win – his first as a member of the Braves.
A night after launching two home runs, Mel Rojas Jr. homered in the fifth inning off Charlotte RHP Anthony Ranuado (4-3, 3.53), who allowed six runs on eight hits over five innings and was saddled with loss.
Never miss a local story.
The Knights fell to 1.5 games back of the G-Braves in the International League South Division standings.
The Knights will continue their series against the G-Braves on Saturday at 6:05 p.m.
