FORT MILL - The Charlotte Knights swung their bats with authority on Sunday afternoon. Unfortunately for them, so did the Columbus Clippers.

The teams combined for seven home runs in the Clippers' 10-7 victory over the Knights (7-17) at Knights Stadium, in the kind of game that typifies pitcher frustration with the hitter-friendly park.

Jose Canseco, Joe Crede and Tim Hummel homered for the Knights. But Columbus (8-15) hitters pounded four Charlotte pitchers for 16 hits, and the Clippers hit a season-high four home runs to earn a split of the four-game series.
