Charlotte Christian made the most of its hits in a defensive battle Thursday, edging Indian Trail Porter Ridge 3-1 in a nonconference high school baseball game.

The Knights had only two hits but combined good base-running with the limited offense to win. Starting pitcher Matthew Siverling, a Virginia Tech commit, went five innings and held Porter Ridge to a pair of hits. He struck out six in gaining the victory.
