CHARLOTTE | The Triple-A debut of Caleb Clay went pretty well.

Clay got the loss on Wednesday as the Syracuse Chiefs lost to the Charlotte Knights, 2-1, but he was strong in defeat.

Clay was perfect in his first four innings and gave up just one hit through five innings as he went 6.2 innings and yielded five hits total and two runs. Charlotte did not get a runner to second until the fifth. He walked one and struck out four.

Chris Rahl was 3-for-4 at the plate and drove in the only Syracuse run in the top of the fourth.

The Chiefs outhit the Knights, 10-5.
