Trayce Thompson drove in four runs with a homer and a double as the Kannapolis Intimidators made it two wins in a row over the Lexington Legends with a 7-3 victory Tuesday night at Kannapolis.
The Legends scored first in the third on a double by Roberto Pena and a single by Bryce Lane, but Kannapolis came back with three in the fifth. With one out, Mount Sterling native Drew Lee and Kenny Gilbert singled. A wild pitch moved them into scoring position and, with two outs, Thompson's double scored both. Ross Wilson followed with an RBI single.
Lee, who played at Morehead State, went 3-for-4 with an RBI, raising his average to .431 over 15 games. In seven games against Lexington, Lee is 16-for-27 with three homers and 10 RBI.
The Legends scored in the seventh inning to cut the lead to one, but Thompson hit his seventh homer of the year with a man on in the bottom of the seventh to give Kannapolis a 5-2 margin. The Legends got one back in the eighth on Mike Kvasnicka's RBI single, but the Intimidators added two more in the bottom of the eighth.
