    Sometimes, off-season training regimens can become boring. Mundane.  Tiresome.  Others can be the type that elongate a career, energize a player, and improve an athlete's quality of life, both on the field and off.  Mike Tolbert hopes he's come across his version of the latter.

    I'm part of the myFoxCarolinas Sports Department, along with Anthony Flores. I'm thrilled to be working in a pro sports town, covering the Panthers, Bobcats (we’ll be calling them the Hornets in no time), and all the local college and high school action the Carolinas provide.

    Friday, for my assignment, I was tasked with a ride-along in a Global Rallycross car, at The Dirt Track at Charlotte Motor Speedway. Cars that go zero-to-60 in 1.9 seconds -- that's faster than a formula one car. We're talking about machines with absurd power. Not a bad gig... But enough to make you a little skittish...

Michael Taylor’s go-ahead RBI double in the bottom of the eighth inning led the Charlotte Knights to a 5-3 win on Saturday in game three of the four-game series from BB&T Ballpark in Uptown Charlotte. The Knights welcomed 10,378 fans through the gates on Saturday for their 24th sell-out crowd of the season.

The game was all tied up (3-3) in the bottom of the eighth inning when Charlotte’s high-powered offense ignited. Reliever Manny Delcarmen came into the game out of the Syracuse bullpen to start the eighth inning. He had his troubles early on.

Matt Tuiasosopo led the inning off with a single and then quickly advanced to second base after a Blake Tekotte sacrifice bunt. With the go-ahead run now on second base, it was Taylor’s turn. On an 0-1 count from Delcarmen (3-3, 3.32), Taylor ripped an RBI double to left field to give the Knights a 4-3 lead. It was Taylor’s ninth double of the season with Charlotte in 21 games. With Taylor now on second base and just one out, Marcus Semien followed with an RBI double to give the Knights a 5-3 lead. Semien finished the night 2-for-5 with a home run and a game-high three RBIs.

Jordan Danks also had a great night at the plate for Charlotte. Danks went 3-for-3 with a home run and two walks. The home run was the 48th of his Knights career, which moved him into sole possession of fourth place on the all-time franchise list. With three hits on the night, Danks now has 420 in his Knights career, which is second all-time behind Joe Borchard (439).


Daniel McCutchen started for the Knights and allowed three runs on seven hits over 6.2 innings. The Charlotte right-hander walked one and struck-out six, but did not factor in the decision. The win went to reliever Taylor Thompson (2-0, 2.72), who allowed just two hits over 2.1 scoreless innings pitched out of the Charlotte bullpen.  



Syracuse starter Josh Roenicke gave up three runs on eight hits over five innings of work. Tyler Moore paced the Syracuse offense with his sixth home run of the season.



The two teams will conclude their series on Sunday from BB&T Ballpark with a 2:05 p.m. game. RHP Bobby Doran (NR) makes his Knights debut on Sunday, while RHP Taylor Hill (9-3, 2.04) gets the nod for the Chiefs.
