Touki Toussaint earned his second Triple-A win in as many starts as the Gwinnett Stripers (27-34) won 5-3 over the host Charlotte Knights (25-34) on Tuesday night at Truist Field.

Toussaint (2-1) scattered three hits and allowed two earned runs while striking out seven over six innings in his fourth rehab start with the Stripers.

Drew Waters led Gwinnett at the plate, going 2-for-5 with a run scored in his first game back from the Futures game on Sunday. Waters is batting .432 (16-for-37) with eight extra-base hits and eight RBIs in his past nine games since July 2.

Tanner Roark earned his first save of the season, allowing one run over the final two innings.

Travis Demeritte homered in his first game since coming off the injured list for Gwinnett.
