Lexington's Mike Foltynewicz got his first professional win in a 4-2 victory over West Virginia in the first game of a doubleheader at Whitaker Bank Ball Park on Wednesday, but the Power beat the Legends 9-3 in the second game.
Both games were seven innings in length, the standard for South Atlantic League doubleheaders.
Foltynewicz (1-6), Houston's first round pick and the 19th overall in the 2010 draft, won a duel with Jameson Taillon (1-1), the first round choice by Pittsburgh in 2010 and the second overall pick.
Foltynewicz took a no-hitter into the sixth inning before he walked two batters, gave up a single to Drew Maggi and was taken out. In five-plus innings, Foltynewicz was charged with two runs, one of them earned. He walked four and struck out five.
