BULLS ROUST KNIGHTS

MIKE FONTENOT, JUSTIN CHRISTIAN WIELD THE BIG BATS IN 8-4 WIN

Merrill Kelly (4-0, 1.50) allowed seven hits and a run while striking out seven over seven innings and a rode a 12-hit attack to an 8-4 win at Charlotte’s new BB&T Ballpark Tuesday night.

Mike Fontenot (3-4, 2 doubles) and Justin Christian (2-4, home run) each drove in three runs for the Bulls (15-5), who have the best record in the International League.

The Bulls managed only a two-out single through the first two innings off Charlotte starter Dylan Axelrod, but used a hit batter and a pair of extra base hits to grab a 3-0 lead in the top of the third.

Axelrod hit No. 9 hitter Eddie Rodriguez with one out, Kevin Kiermaier followed with a double and Justin Christian tacked on a three-run home run moments later.

Christian extended his personal hitting streak to 10 games with that blast.
