Three West Virginia pitchers combined on a three-hitter, and the Power beat the Legends 5-1 Wednesday night to take the opener of a four-game series at Lexington.
Power starter Zack Von Rosenberg (1-4) got his first win of the season, holding the Legends to three hits and one run with seven strikeouts and no walks over six innings. Victor Black pitched two scoreless innings in relief, and Brooks Pounders threw a perfect ninth.
It was a different story for Lexington starter Carlos Quevedo (4-3), who lost his second straight and the Legends' third in a row. He gave up 10 hits and four runs in five innings, but only one run was earned, a second-inning solo homer by Rogelio Noris.
West Virginia scored one more in the third after leadoff batter Andrew Maggi reached on shortstop Jiovanni Mier's fielding error. In the sixth, third baseman Michael Kvasnicka had two errors in the first three at-bats that led to two runs and a 4-1 lead for the Power.
Never miss a local story.
The Legends' lone run came off an RBI single in the third by Jordan Scott, who was playing in his first game with the team.
