CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) - The Charlotte Knights dropped the finale of their three-game series to the Indianapolis Indians by a score of 6-4 in 11 innings from BB&T Ballpark in Uptown Charlotte on Sunday afternoon.

Despite the loss, the Knights posted an impressive 5-2 record on the homestand. Sunday's loss snapped Charlotte's season-high five-game winning streak.

The Knights, who won three games on walk-offs during the homestand, almost had another walk-off win on Sunday.

In the bottom of the ninth inning, the Knights trailed the Indians by a score of 4-2.

Charlotte then battled and scored two runs to tie the game, which sent the team into extra innings.

In the top of the 11th inning, RHP Rob Scahill allowed two runs to the Indians, which gave them a 6-4 lead at that point.

The Knights couldn't come back from the two-run deficit in the bottom of the 11th inning and Scahill was charged with the loss. 

The Knights will now have an off day on Monday before heading to Moosic, PA to open a three-game series against the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders (Triple-A affiliate of the New York Yankees) on Tuesday.
