The Lexington Legends earned a pair of victories against the Hagerstown Suns on Monday at Whitaker Bank Ballpark — an 11-1 victory in a game that had been suspended Sunday and an 8-4 win in the regularly scheduled game.

Zach Johnson drove in five runs in the two games. He leads the South Atlantic League with 76 RBI.

The first game was picked up in the fourth inning with the Legends ahead 8-1. Lexington added another run in the sixth on an RBI double by Jose Fernandez.

Sacrifice flies by Matt Duffy and Johnson in the eighth accounted for the final two runs of the opener.

Mitchell Lambson (1-0), who started off the Legends on Monday, pitched four scoreless innings and allowed one hit for the victory.

The Legends jumped out to a quick 1-0 lead in the second game. Delino DeShields Jr. walked and scored on a double by Johnson.

Lexington broke through with five runs in the second inning.

Justin Gominsky led off with a single, and scored on Mike Kvasnicka's 11th home run of the season.

With one out, Luis Alvarez tripled and scored on a single by DeShields. Nolan Fontana followed with a two-run homer to right field.

Lexington's other runs came in the fourth inning on a two-run double by Johnson.

Luis Cruz (7-5) got the win, allowing four runs, two earned, in 52⁄3 innings.
