The Charlotte Knights and the Mercy Rule

For my trip to go see the Charlotte Knights, I bought the cheap seats in the outfield and proved that there isn't a bad seat in the house.

The game itself was a slaughter. The Knights took it to the Norfolk Tides and just stomped them. Of course, every so often, Moncada (2B) would come to the plate and everybody would hold their collective breaths to see what the White Sox number one prospect was going to do, but the man of the night for the Knights was Hayes (1B) who was personally responsible for 2 home runs (1 grand slam) and 6 RBI's.

After Hayes' grand slam in the 3rd it looked like the game was over, but the Tides pecked away at the lead until the Knights decided to play home run derby in the 6th and 7th innings.  Hayes, Delmonico, Moncada, and Vinicio all got their hits over the wall. Oh, and not to leave anyone out, Garcia also had a homer in the 1st inning.

By the end of the game it was 15-5 in favor of the Knights and judging from the display I saw the White Sox have a lot of power hitting to look forward to in the future.
