Notes: The BB&T BallPark gates are currently open and the USA World Cup soccer game is being aired on the scoreboard. … Chicago has released veteran setup man Mitchell Boggs. Boggs signed a one-year $1.1M contract with the White Sox prior to this season, but had struggled all season, posting a 9.50 ERA in 25 games. ... With two home runs last night – including a walk-off two-run shot in the 10th inning of Game 2 – Matt Davidson has climbed into second place in the IL in home runs with 15. … Tyler Saladino – who also homered twice yesterday – is hitting .458 over the Knights last 10 games with two HR, six runs knocked in and six scored. … Today Deunte Heath will make his seventh start of the season. He’s picked up the win in his last two. … Charlotte finished the month of June with a .500 (15-15) winning percentage. It went 8-22 in May. … The highest attendance in a season for the Knights in their 27-year history came in 1993 when they drew 429,132. Through 42 games this season, they’ve drawn 402,723.
