KNOXVILLE — As they continue their final tune-ups before starting postseason play on Friday, Knoxville was able to pick up a convincing six inning run-rule victory over Fairfield.

Ben Olson led the Panther bats by going 2-for-4 with two doubles and five RBIs. Colton Jones reached four times with a single and three walks while Luke Spaur, Carter Bailey, Bode Cox and Mike Hudson all drove in one run.

Bailey got the win after pitching 4 2/3 innings for Knoxville, giving up one unearned run on one hit with three walks and six strikeouts. Beau Leisure pitched the final 1 1/3 innings, not allowing any baserunners with one punch out.

Knoxville (9-9) wraps up regular season play on Tuesday at 5 p.m. when they host Centerville (10-3).
