Chris Wallace had a three-run homer, two triples and a single as the Lexington Legends defeated the Savannah Sand Gnats 6-3 Friday night in Savannah, Ga.
With the score tied 2-2 and one out in the top of the seventh inning, Ben Orloff beat out a bunt and Adam Bailey doubled to right field, putting runners at second and third.
Telvin Nash singled to left to put the Legends in front 3-2, and Wallace followed with his league-leading seventh home run of the year to give Lexington a 6-2 lead.
Wallace singled in the second inning, tripled in the fourth and tripled again in the sixth. He had an opportunity for the cycle with a ninth inning at-bat, but he lined out to center field.
Never miss a local story.
Wallace also leads the South Atlantic League in RBI with 22.
Louisville native Jason Chowning (1-0), who relieved starter Juan Minaya in the sixth inning, got the win.
Brian Streilein picked up his second save, getting the last two outs in the ninth inning after Savannah loaded the bases with one out.
The series, now even at two wins apiece, concludes Saturday night.
