Kody Hinze's two-run double in the seventh inning broke a tie, and the Lexington Legends went on to beat the Delmarva Shorebirds 7-2 Sunday afternoon and win the four-game series at Applebee's Park.
With the score tied at 2, Hinze hit his second double of the game, a drive to left center that scored Jiovanni Mier and Jake Goebbert. Hinze later scored on Rene Garcia's two-out triple. Jimmy Paredes, who was assigned to Lexington after being traded from the New York Yankees' organization as part of the deal for Houston veteran Lance Berkman, doubled in a run in the eighth, his first hit as a Legend.
Legends second baseman Jose Altuve was promoted to Lancaster in the Class A-Advanced California League Saturday night. The 5-foot-5, 148-pound South Atlantic League All-Star hit .308 with 11 homers and 45 RBI and stole 39 bases for Lexington.
