The West Virginia Power survived a ninth-inning rally and hung on to beat the Lexington Legends 4-3 at Applebee's Park on Friday night.
Trailing 4-1 with one out in the ninth, the Legends drew four consecutive walks off West Virginia reliever Duke Welker to pull within 4-2.
The Power then replaced Welker with Marc Baca, who gave up a single to pinch hitter Miguel Arrendell, making it 4-3. Jonathan Meyer, representing the tying run, had to hold at third.
Brian Kemp then grounded into a game-ending double play.
Never miss a local story.
The Power scored all their runs in the first inning. Ramon Cabrera drove in the first run on a forceout with the bases loaded. Two batters later, Jesus Brito tripled on a fly ball that dropped just inside the right-field line, clearing the bases and giving the Power a 4-0 lead.
West Virginia's Kyle McPherson (4-5), who pitched seven innings of no-hit baseball against the Legends on May 25, got the win.
