Legends take two from Hagerstown

July 28, 2012 

Lexington starting pitcher Luis Ordosgoitti dominated the visiting Hagerstown Suns, allowing two hits and no runs in six innings, as the Legends won 2-0 Saturday night.

It was a seven-inning game that followed the completion of a game that began Friday night but was suspended because of rain after three innings.

Legends first baseman Zach Johnson hit homers in both the Friday and Saturday portions of the suspended game and knocked in five runs to lead Lexington to an 8-1 victory.

Johnson hit a three-run homer in the first inning Friday night and belted a solo shot in the seventh inning Saturday.

Luis Cruz pitched three scoreless innings for the Legends Friday night before the rain came. Evan Grills took over Saturday and got the win, shutting out the Suns on just one hit over four innings.

In the regularly scheduled game, Hagerstown starting pitcher Taylor Hill threw three perfect innings before the Legends broke through with two runs in the fourth. Third baseman Matt Duffy drove in the first run with a triple then scored on a single by Brandon Meredith. Duffy and Meredith had two hits each.

Ordosgoitti got his fourth win of the season, striking out seven and walking just two. Both hits off him came in the first inning when Hagerstown loaded the bases with two outs. But Ordosgoitti got J.R. Higley to pop up to end the threat.

Murilo Gouvea struck out two in pitching a scoreless seventh inning for his fourth save of the season.

In the fifth inning, Lexington second baseman Delino DeShields Jr. hit a single and stole second and third to bring his season total to 75, which leads the South Atlantic League.
