Mike Foltynewicz won his ninth game in 10 decisions and the Lexington Legends rode a six-run fifth inning to a 9-2 victory over the visiting West Virginia Power on Wednesday night at Whitaker Bank Ballpark.
Chan Moon struck the big blow for the Legends, a three-run home run in the decisive fifth. It was the second long ball of the season for the South Korea native, who drove in four runs.
Foltynewicz pitched into the seventh inning, allowing five hits and both West Virginia runs. He struck out four and walked three, and his ERA rose to 2.13, second best in the South Atlantic League.
Evan Grills went the rest of the way for Lexington, giving up one hit in 22⁄3 innings.
