The Kannapolis Intimidators won a rain-shortened second game 3-1 to earn a split of a doubleheader with the Lexington Legends on Thursday night at Whitaker Bank Ballpark.
The Legends came from behind with three runs in the sixth inning to win the first game, 3-2. Both games were scheduled to go seven innings.
The Legends trailed 2-0 with two outs and the bases empty in the bottom of the sixth before rallying for three runs. Jorge DeLeon (1-0), who entered the game in the sixth, retired Kannapolis in order in the seventh to get the win. Kannapolis reliever Kevin Moran (0-2) took the loss.
In the second game, Drew Lee's solo homer in the fourth inning gave Kannapolis a 3-1 lead. Rain stopped the game at the end of the sixth inning, and, after a delay of one hour and eight minutes, the game was called.
Never miss a local story.
Lee, a Mount Sterling native and former Morehead State star, had a double in three at-bats in the first game, and went 2-for-3 in the second game. He is 8-for-14 in the series with two homers and six RBI.
Kannapolis scored a run in the top of the first inning of the second game. Trayce Thompson was hit by a pitch leading off the game. He moved to third on Ross Wilson's single and scored on Brady Shoemaker's sacrifice fly.
The Intimidators added a run in the third on a single by Wilson and a double by Shoemaker. Lexington scored in the bottom of the third when Daniel Adamson reached second on an infield hit and a throwing error by pitcher Ryan Buch. Adamson went to third on an infield out and scored on Ben Orloff's single to make the score 2-1.
The teams have split the first four games, which concludes with a 7:05 p.m. game Friday at Whitaker Bank Ballpark.
