Can the Bobcats do the unthinkable and win two in a row? We will find out tonight when the Cats travel to Dallas to take on the Mavericks.

Per +Charlotte Knights News Release:


KNIGHTS WIN FOR THIRD-STRAIGHT DAY, BEAT THE BULLS 4-3 WEDNESDAY

(Fort Mill, SC) – It was school day at Knights Stadium on Wednesday and the Knights were at the head of the class.

In front of nearly 6,900 school students, Greg Golson and Josh Phegley had two hits, and the Knights beat the Bulls for a third-straight day – this time by a score of 4-3. The Knights have now won all three games in the series and have pulled their overall record back to .500 (7-7). They are currently 5-2 at home this season.

The Knights bats broke out for four runs in the second inning of Wednesday’s game. Dan Johnson started it off with a leadoff walk. Phegley then followed the walk with a double to left center field. Two batters later, Jose Castro got his first base hit as a Knight – an RBI single, to make it 1-0 Knights.

Things then started to unravel for Durham starter Chris Archer (1-2, 9.95) – a Raleigh, NC native. Archer threw a wild pitch to allow Phegley to score and then Golson doubled off the right center field wall to bring in two more and make it 4-0 Knights. The RBI by Golson proved to be the game-winner. He also drove home the game-winning run in Tuesday’s 3-2 Knights win with a base hit to right center.

The Bulls added a run in the third, fifth, and seventh innings of Wednesday’s game. Two of the three runs came off Knights starter Charlie Leesman (1-1, 5.02).

Leesman followed up a five-inning, three hit, one run performance last Friday at Norfolk with another five-inning outing Wednesday. He only surrendered two runs against the Bulls and recorded his first Triple-A victory.

Durham’s third run came off Knights reliever Brian Omogrosso, who ran into a bit of trouble in the seventh. Omogrosso issued a leadoff walk to Kyle Hudson. Three batters later, Brandon Guyer drove-in Hudson to make it a 4-3 game at that point.

Reliever Leyson Septimo pitched out of trouble in the eighth for the Knights after walking Leslie Anderson to start the inning and moving him to second on a wild pitch. The runner advanced to third on a groundout to first, but Septimo got Jesus Feliciano to groundout to a drawn-in Ray Olmedo at short for the second out. He then struck out Nevin Ashley to preserve the 4-3 lead.

For the second straight day, Brian Bruney came on and sat down the Bulls 1-2-3 in the ninth for his second save. Dating back to last season, Bruney is now 9-for-9 in save chances with the Knights.

The series finale is Thursday night at 7:15 p.m. at Knights Stadium. RHP Terry Doyle (0-1, 7.84) will take the mound for the Knights, while RHP Alex Cobb (0-1, 2.25) will toe the rubber for the Bulls.

Thursday is Thirsty Thursday ™ at Knights Stadium, thanks to Hickory Tavern, and features $1 sodas and $1 beers.

Per Charlotte 49ers News Release:


49ers Sign Three-Point Specialist Benkovic
Shooting Guard From Croatia Played at Charlotte’s Mack Academy

Halton Arena -- Charlotte 49ers head coach Alan Major has announced the signing of 6-5 shooting guard Ivan Benkovic (Zagreb, Croatia/Mack Academy) to a National Letter of Intent to play basketball for the 49ers.
Benkovic has been in United States for two seasons, attending United Faith Christian Academy in Matthews, N.C. in 2010-11 and Evelyn Mack Academy in Charlotte in 2011-12.
“He’s a high-character kid. A competitor,” said Major. “He believes in what we’re building here. We’re excited Ivan wants to be a part of that.”
As a junior at nationally-ranked United Faith, the three-point specialist helped the Falcons to the NC Independent School’s Athletic Association 1A State Championship game. Benkovic scored 14 points in the 57-49 championship game loss to Trinity Christian as United Faith, which split games with Oak Hill Academy during the regular season, completed a 28-8 season as state runner-up.
As a senior at Mack Academy, Benkovic averaged 15.0 points for head coach Will Sperow.
“We’re excited about his ability to shoot the ball,” Major added. “He brings a uniqueness to our team and adds to our backcourt.”
Benkovic joins a five-man recruiting class that includes fall signees Willie Clayton, Darion Clark and Shawn Lester and spring signee Denzel Ingram. Clayton, a 6-7 forward from Thomasville, Ga., was recently named MVP of Georgia’s North-South All-Star game for the second straight year. Clark, a 6-8 power forward from Conyers, Ga., helped key Oak Hill Academy’s perfect 44-0 season that included a #1 ranking in the final national polls. Lester, a 6-3 guard from Mooresville, N.C. and Ingram a 5-11 point guard from Chapel Hill, N.C., both scored 1500 points in their careers and were chosen to participate in the Carolina All-Star Basketball Classic in Myrtle Beach, S.C. and the Jordan Brand Regional All-Star Classic in Charlotte’s Time Warner Cable Arena.
