Intimidators' Gac attack finishes off Legends in 10th

Ian Gac's two-run homer in the top of the 10th inning gave the Kannapolis Intimidators an 8-6 victory over the Lexington Legends Thursday night at Applebee's Park.

The Legends had rallied from a 6-3 deficit to tie the game in the seventh inning.

In the 10th, Daniel Wagner led off with a single. He was sacrificed to second by Miguel Gonzalez. Kyle Colligan fouled out to first baseman Aaron Bray, but Gac followed with a drive over the wall in right center field for his fifth home run of the year.

The Legends took a 2-0 lead in the bottom of the first inning on J.D. Martinez's two-run homer, his second home run in two games. Kannapolis scored a run in the second inning on doubles by Nick Ciolli and Brady Shoemaker. Shoemaker was 4-for-4 in the game with a homer and four RBI.

The Intimidators went in front with three runs in the fourth inning. A single by Colligan, a double by Gac and a fielder's choice produced one run, and Shoemaker followed with a two-run homer to give Kannapolis a 4-2 advantage.

Bray's RBI double scored Andy Simunic in the bottom of the fifth to cut the lead to one, but Kannapolis scored twice in the sixth to take a 6-3 lead.

The Legends came back to tie it with three runs in the seventh.
