Charlotte, N.C. – Adam Haseley came through with a walk-off three-run homer in the ninth inning as the Charlotte Knights (28-29) stunned the Nashville Sounds (28-28) 10-8 on Sunday afternoon at Truist Field. Nashville and Charlotte split the six-game series after the Sounds dropped the series finale.

Thyago Vieira (1-1) retired the first two Knights in the ninth, but back-to-back broken bat singles kept the game alive before Haseley’s third homer of the season.

The Sounds hit the road for their second series on this 13-game road trip, starting a seven-game series against the Jacksonville Jumbo Shrimp on Tuesday. Nashville’s starter is still to be announced. Jacksonville’s starter will be right-hander Chi Chi Gonzalez (2-4, 5.80). First pitch is set for 6:05 p.m. central time from 121 Financial Ballpark.
