Lexington Legends

The Night at the Ballpark

Highlights from Wednesday's 2-0 Lexington win over Columbus:

The Big Hold

Gregory Sexton led off the Columbus fourth inning with a double, then took third on Stephen Vogt's single. Legends starter Leandro Cespedes then struck out Henry Wrigley, Michael McCormick and Ian Paxton to keep the game scoreless.

The Big Hold II

Carlos Ladeuth, who replaced Cespedes to open the sixth, was greeted with back-to-back singles and a sacrifice bunt to put two runners in scoring position with one out. With the infield drawn in, Ladeuth fanned McCormick. Third baseman Matt Cusick then handled Paxton's hot grounder and threw to first for the out, again keeping the game scoreless.

Numbers

The Legends have won five of six games. They took the series three games to one. ... Legends pitchers combined to strike out nine and walk four. ... A crowd of 5,519 was announced.

Quoteworthy

”Just looking for a fastball to hit and got it in the right spot and put a good swing on it. ... I've never been like this before, so it feels good“ — Kyle Miller on his two-run homer and his 9-for-20 batting since joining the Legends

LOOKING AHEAD

Thursday is a travel day for the Legends, who open a four-game series Friday at Delmarva.
