(bisons.com)-Thad Weber was strong for the Bisons, but the Herd bats were not.

Buffalo had just three hits in a 3-0 loss to Charlotte Monday night from Charlotte, N.C.

Weber, a Seward, NE native, threw seven innings for the Herd. He allowed just two earned runs, six hits and three walks, while striking out four. He moved to 3-2 on the season.

The Bisons never got into an offensive rhythm in the game and were 0-for-5 with runners in scoring position.

Knights' starter Zach Stewart threw seven innings of three-hit ball, while walking just one and striking out six Herd batters.

The Knights took the lead in the bottom of the fifth inning on a sacrifice fly by Steve Tolleson, scoring Tyler Greene from third. Greene reached on a single to right to lead off the inning and stole second before reaching third on a ground ball by Jim Gallagher.

Charlotte increased its lead by one in the seventh inning thanks to a double by Gallagher that scored Greene and put the Knights up 2-0. Greene got on base with his second single of the game and stole his second base of the game to get into scoring position.

Josh Phegley put the Knights ahead 3-0 on a sac-fly to right, scoring Brent Moral form third. Moral doubled to start the inning for Charlotte.

Kevin Pillar, Eugenio Velez and Mike McCoy were the only Bisons players to get a hit in the game
