FORT MILL, S.C. -- First baseman Brad Eldred belted a two-run home run in the bottom of the sixth inning to lead Charlotte to a 4-3 victory over Indianapolis on Tuesday evening at Knights Stadium.

The Knights improve to 57-74 on the season and 31-32 at home, while the Indians fall to 62-69 overall and 27-36 on the road. The win snapped Charlotte's six-game losing streak along with Indianapolis' three-game winning streak.

Eldred, who played with the Indians during the 2005-07 seasons, provided the game's big blow in a game that began as a pitcher's duel. His long ball, which plated pinch hitter Javier Colina, was his International League leading 33rd of the season and broke a 2-2 tie in the sixth inning.

Charlotte plated its first two runs in the third when RF David Cook led off the inning with a walk, moved third on a double by LF Jason Tyner, and came around to score on a sacrifice fly by SS Robert Valido. 2B Jason Bourgeois then doubled in Tyner to give the Knights a 2-1 advantage

Starter Lance Broadway (6.2 IP, 6 H, 3 R, 3 ER, 1 BB, 5 SO) picked up the win for the Knights to improve to 11-7 on the season. In relief of Broadway, RHP Ehren Wassermann (1.1 IP, 1 SO) and RHP Jason Childers (1.0 IP, 2 SO) combined for 2.1 perfect innings as Wassermann collected his third hold of the season and Childers notched his 15th save.

Colina (2-for-2, 1 R), who entered as a defensive replacement for 3B Joe Crede in the sixth inning, collected hits in both his at-bats for the only multi-hit performance for Charlotte.

C Carlos Maldonado collected the only multi-hit game and the lone RBI for the Tribe, while also plating two of the team's three runs.

Maldonado plated the first Tribe run in the third, leading off with a double and coming around to score, when CF Andrew McCutchen grounded into a double play. The 29-year-old then belted his third long ball of the season, a solo shot in the fifth inning, that for a time evened the score at two.

RHP Ross Ohlendorf (6.0 IP, 6 H, 4 R, 4 ER, 2 BB, 7 SO) tossed six strong innings for the Tribe, but took the loss to drop to 3-4 on the season. The 26-year-old has now gone at least six innings in all five of his starts with the Indians, while striking out 29 and walking just seven.

RHP Marino Salas (0.2 IP, 1 H, 2 BB, 1 SO) and RHP Mike Thompson (1.1 IP, 1 SO) combined for two innings of scoreless relief for the Tribe.

Post-game quotes -- C Carlos Maldonado

(on the pitching performance of RHP Ross Ohlendorf)
"(RHP Ross) Ohlendorf was not as good tonight as he has been in his previous starts. So he had to battle and he did battle all game long. The reason he wasn't as sharp is because his slider was flat. But his fastball was still good and he was able to make the necessary adjustments to do what he needed to do."

(on doing positive things whenever he gets the chance to play)
"Every day I go to the cage and work on my swing. When I am in the lineup I work on the swing a little bit harder and a little bit longer. But I always emphasise the work on my catching, because I know how important it is during the game and how it can have an impact on the final result."
