Jacob Turner made the start and lasted five innings, giving up two runs on eight hits with three strikeouts. The bullpen could not hold the lead, as Terance Marin suffered the loss, giving up three runs in 1.1 innings of work. The only positive out of the pen came from Will Lamb, who fired a scoreless eighth inning while punching out one. Offensively, Jason Bourgeois was the only Knights batter who had a multi-hit game, as he had a pair of singles. Carlos Sanchez, Danny Hayes, Matt Davidson, and Nick Delmonico all contributed as well, as each had one hit and a RBI on the night.

The Knights return to action with the IronPigs tomorrow night, as Chris Volstad is set to start.

Birmingham 3, Chattanooga 2

Nolan Sanburn got the final six outs without giving up a hit, and earned his second save of the season. The top third of the order came up big for the Barons at the plate, as they combined for all three of the team’s RBIs. Lead off man Adam Engel and number three hitter Jake Peter each had a hit and a RBI, while Joey DeMichele had a RBI hitting in the two hole. The bottom third of the lineup were major contributors as well, as Jeremy Dowdy, Marcus Lemon, and Keenyn Walker all had a hit, walk, and run scored.

Marcus Jones started things off with a two run triple, and was then followed by Chris O’Dowd, who blasted a two run home run, his first of the season. Lead-off man Hunter Jones was another standout offensively, as he had a triple and a run scored.
