Bases-loaded double dooms Legends in 8th

Adam White ripped a line-drive double to left field with the bases loaded and two outs in the eighth inning to break a tie, and the Lake County Captains held on to beat the Legends 7-4 at Applebee's Park.

Kyle Miller hit his sixth homer of the season to give Lexington a 2-0 lead after the first inning. After the Captains went up 3-2, Steve Brown's RBI single tied the ball game.

Lake County's Garrison Campfield came on in the bottom of the eighth and threw two wild pitches. The Legends got a run back on the second one, but the Captains iced it in the ninth with two more.

Leandro Cespedes was impressive on the mound for Lexington, striking out 10 over 42⁄3 innings and giving up five hits, three runs and two walks.

Miller has been on a tear since coming to Lexington from Greenville of the Appalachian League. He went 2-for-4 Sunday and is batting .344 in 15 games.

The Legends have now lost two in a row at home since going 6-2 on a road trip.
