Charlotte also scored 31 runs, had 46 hits in 195 at-bats, nine doubles, nine home runs, 11 walks to 44 strikeouts, and went 6-for-8 on stolen bases. Complete season totals for the Knights offense can be found here.

They also allowed 37 runs (34 earned), 56 hits to 51 innings pitched, 24 walks to 56 strikeouts, hit two batters and allowed 12 home runs.
