June 9, 2012 

Shortstop Chan Moon hit a three-run homer to left field in the top of the tenth inning to lead the visiting Lexington Legends to a 4-1 victory over the Greensboro Grasshoppers in a South Atlantic League game Saturday night.

It was the South Korean's first homer of the season. He had two hits to raise his average to .286.

Evan Grills (2-0) got the win with four innings of scoreless relief. He struck out Wilfredo Gimenez with two outs and a runner on third in the bottom of the ninth.

Dayan Diaz got the save by pitching a perfect tenth.

Austin Brice took the loss, allowing Chan's homer following a walk and a single. Before that he had tossed four scoreless innings.

Both teams scored in the fourth inning. The Legends' Zach Johnson, second in the league with 56 RBI, slammed a homer to left.

In the bottom of the inning, center fielder Brent Keys, who leads the league with a .370 average, doubled for one of his three hits. First baseman Ryan Rieger knocked him in with a single.

Lexington improved to a season-best nine games over .500.
