2022 is shaping up to be a forgettable year for the Charlotte Knights.

Riding the 2-hit performance of the 26-year old center fielder Bob Herring, the Gwinnett Firebirds stopped the Charlotte Knights, 9-0. Alberto Guerrero went 5 innings for Gwinnett to pick up the win. The right-hander was charged with no runs. He scattered 1 hit, while walking 1 and striking out 4. His record improves to 3-5.

In the top of the second of a scoreless game, Herring hit a grand slam home run to put his team ahead.

Charlotte manager Luis M. Martinez said his team was "out of sync."

Gwinnett is now 74-68, 11 games up in the South Division.
