Power deal Legends their fourth loss in five games

Caleb Gindi's bases-loaded, two-run double in the first inning was all the West Virginia Power needed to send the Lexington Legends to their fourth loss of the week. R.J. Seidel (5-4) pitched 62⁄3 innings of three-hit ball, and the Power won 3-1 in Charleston.

Seidel gave up the one run on Brian Pellegrini's solo homer in the seventh. It was Pellegrini's 11th long ball of the season and third in three games. He had two of Lexington's three hits Saturday and is batting .454 in that span.

But the rest of the Legends bats cooled off a day after piling up 10 hits in an 8-5 loss to West Virginia Friday. They've lost four of five since Monday.

Corey Frerichs finished off Lexington with three strikeouts and no hits over the final 21⁄3 for his fifth save of the season.

Legends starter Luis Pardo (0-4) gave up seven hits and all three earned runs while striking out four over six innings.

Pellegrini leads the Legends in home runs and slugging percentage (.624) and is second in RBI with 35, behind Eric Taylor (36).
