CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) - Wednesday night's game between the Charlotte Knights and the Durham Bulls was played in front of 10,831 fans, the largest crowd in BB&T Ballpark history.

Right fielder Mason Robbins drove home two runs to help pace the \Knights to a 4-2 win over the Bulls on July 4.

LHP Jordan Guerrero was sharp for the Knights over five innings, but did not factor in the decision. Guerrero, 24, allowed just one run on five hits. He walked two batters and struck-out two.

Charlotte's bullpen allowed just one more run over the final four innings. RHP Jeanmar G?mez (5-0, 2.09) earned the win, while RHP Ian Hamilton notched his third save of the season.

The Knights jumped out to a 1-0 lead in the bottom of the fourth inning thanks to an RBI single from Robbins.

The Bulls then rallied in the top of the fifth inning to tie the game thanks to an RBI single from former Charlotte outfielder, Jason Coats.

The Charlotte offense took over in the bottom of the sixth inning and scored three runs to take a commanding 4-1 lead at that point.

Designated hitter Seby Zavala had an RBI double in the inning, while Robbins drove home one more run in the frame. Catcher Dustin Garneau added an RBI single in the inning.

The Knights have now won five of their last eight games against the Bulls.

The Knights will conclude their two-game series against the Durham Bulls from Uptown Charlotte on Thursday.

Gates will open at 6 p.m. and the first 2,000 fans will receive an "Uptown" T-Shirt.
