Notes: The Knights enter tonight's game atop the IL South Division standings, sitting 1.5 games ahead of the Norfolk Tides and the Durham Bulls ... Charlotte has excelled at home this season, posting a 15-8 record at BB&T BallPark. The team has won seven of its last 10 home games ... During Monday's game, one of the Charlotte ball boys made this nice snag.
