Adam Bailey hit two of Lexington's four home runs, and the Legends rocked the Asheville Tourists 13-7 Saturday night in Asheville, N.C.
Both of Bailey's homers tied the game. The first made it 1-1 in the third inning, and the second made it 3-3 and jump-started a seven-run fifth inning that broke open the game.
After Bailey's second drive off Asheville starter Erik Stavert (0-1), the Legends tacked on five hits in the inning. Bryce Lane scored on a passed ball, and Chris Wallace's three-run homer gave the Legends a 7-3 lead and chased Stavert. Bailey added an RBI single in his second at-bat of the inning, and Roberto Pena drove in another run with a double.
Jiovanni Mier hit the Legends' fourth home run of the game in the sixth inning, a solo shot and Mier's first of the season.
Never miss a local story.
Carlos Quevedo (2-0) was the beneficiary of the Legends' offense, getting the win despite allowing seven hits and five runs in five innings.
The win evened the series 1-1. Game 3 of the four-game series is Sunday at 2:05 p.m.
