CINCINNATI - Former Xavier pitcher Charlie Leesman will take to the mound tonight for the Charlotte Knights who face the Pawtucket Red Sox in the Triple-A International League Governors' Cup Finals.

A native of Cincinnati, Leesman was given the starting nod in the Triple-A's version of the World Series after posting a 12-10 regular-season record and 2.47 ERA. The left-handed hurler has 103 strikeouts and only 52 walks in 135.0 innings pitched for Charlotte. Leesman was named an IL All-Star earlier this season. The Charlotte Knights are a Triple-A affiliate of the Chicago White Sox.

Leesman played for Xavier for three seasons before being drafted by the White Sox as the 330th pick in 11th round of the 2008 Major League Baseball First Year Player Draft. During his final year as a Musketeer, Leesman posted a 2-6 record with an ERA of 5.32.
