Durham, NC - Shane Baz tossed six solid innings, fanning eight to lead the Durham Bulls past the Charlotte Knights 5-2 on Friday night at the DBAP.

Nathan Wiles, Erasmo Ramirez and Manny Rodriguez (S, 5) closed out the Bulls' second straight win in the series.

Durham (33-34) scored three times in the first inning, capitalizing on three straight walks from Nick Nastrini (L, 0-5) that opened the game. Austin Shenton singled in a pair, with a double play grounder by Rene Pinto scoring the other run.

CJ Hinojosa struck for a two-run homer in the fourth for a 5-1 lead.
