Adam Bailey hit a two-run homer in the sixth inning and made a diving catch in right field for the last out of the game as the Legends defeated the West Virginia Power 2-0 Tuesday night at Whitaker Bank Ballpark.
With one out in the sixth and Enrique Hernandez on at first base, Bailey lined a homer over the fence in right center field. It was his 16th home run of the year, second-best in the South Atlantic League.
The Power threatened in the ninth. With one out, Cole White doubled. He advanced to third on a fly out by Elias Diaz. Chase Lyles walked and advanced to second on a wild pitch as White held at third. Kevin Mort hit a fly ball into right center field, and Bailey made the diving catch to end the game.
Carlos Quevedo (6-4) threw seven shutout innings to get the win. He allowed three hits while striking out three. West Virginia starter Tyler Waldron (6-4) was the loser, allowing two runs in six innings of work.
Never miss a local story.
Brian Streilein worked the eighth and ninth innings to pick up his fifth save of the season for the Legends.
