The offenses ruled early and pitching dominated afterward as Lexington and West Virginia combined for 10 runs in the first four innings of the Legends' 6-4 victory on Monday night at Whitaker Bank Ballpark. Lexington starter Jonas Dufek settled down after a rough start and he and relievers Murilo Gouvea and Dayan Diaz combined to give up one hit from the fifth inning on.
Dufek (3-1) gave up four runs on eight hits and had six strikeouts in seven innings. Gouvea and Diaz, who earned his sixth save, pitched one scoreless inning apiece.
Mike Kvasnicka, who had two home runs in the Legends' loss to Greensboro on Sunday, hit another on Monday. He was 3-for-4 with two RBI and two runs scored.
Matt Duffy, who is batting .321 this season, was 1-for-3 with a two-run single in the first inning.
Never miss a local story.
The Power's Zack Von Rosenberg, who was making his second start of the season, gave up six runs on eight hits and three walks in four innings.
