Legends win on Meyer's single in 11th

Jonathan Meyer's one-out single in the 11th inning scored Barry Butera from second to give the Lexington Legends a 7-6 victory against Delmarva at Applebee's Park on Saturday night.

The Legends pulled out the victory after losing 4-1 and 6-4 leads earlier in the game.

Lexington did most of its damage in the first inning. Jacob Goebbert followed singles by Grant Hogue and Jiovanni Mier with a three-run shot to right field.

A Shorebirds pitching change from Matthew Hobgood to Nicholas Haughian didn't help.

The next batter, Kody Hinze, hit his 14th home run of the season to put the Legends ahead 4-1.

Delmarva made it 4-all before Lexington scored one run in the sixth on a balk and another in the seventh on a sacrifice fly by Mier.

Steven Bumbry, the son of former Orioles outfielder Al Bumbry, hit a three-run home run in the sixth for the Shorebirds.

Legends starter Travis Bushue turned in a solid performance but didn't factor in the decision. He pitched five innings, giving up one run on four hits and three walks.

Daniel Sarisky (2-0) pitched a 1-2-3 11th inning and got the victory.

David Walters, who entered the game with a 1.00 ERA in nine appearances for Delmarva, took the loss.
