Waterlogged field forces Lexington to suspend game

July 16, 2012 

LEXINGTON — Rainfall Sunday combined with a wet weekend at Whitaker Bank Ballpark created a waterlogged and unplayable outfield and forced the suspension of the contest between the Lexington Legends and the Hagarstown Suns.

The Legends led 8-1 in the fourth inning Sunday when play was stopped. The game resumes Monday at 5:05 p.m.

Hagarstown notched one run in the first, but the Legends answered with six of their own, highlighted by a Jose Fernandez double that drove in Nolan Fontana and Matt Duffy, and a single by Ryan McCurdy that sent Justin Gominsky and Fernandez home.

McCurdy scored next on a Ruben Sosa single in the third. Sosa himself scored on a line drive by Nolan Fontana.
