Felix Pie delivered the sixth walk-off, game-winning hit of the season for the Gwinnett Braves on Sunday against the Charlotte Knights. The G-Braves entered the ninth inning trailing the Knights by a run, when Pie stepped to the plate in a tie game, 5-5, following the Tyler Pastornicky game-tying double off the wall the at-bat prior. Pie crushed an 0-1 pitch into right field for the 6-5 Gwinnett win which snapped their 15-game hit streak.
