Legends lose to Augusta on 10th-inning single

Ehire Adrianza's single scored Carlos Willoughby from second base with two outs in the 10th inning, and the Augusta GreenJackets defeated the Lexington Legends 4-3 in the opener of a four-game series in Augusta, Ga., on Sunday.

The GreenJackets took a 2-0 lead in the first inning when Adam Duvall, a former University of Louisville star, hit his South Atlantic League-leading 15th home run of the season. Willoughby, who had led off the inning with a single, scored on Duvall's homer.

The Legends moved in front with three runs in the top of the fifth.

Emilio King, who had three of Lexington's six hits, led off with a single. He advanced to third on two wild pitches by Augusta starter Justin Schumer.

Delino DeShields Jr. walked and stole second, and he and King both scored on a single by Adam Bailey.

Bailey went to second as Chris Wallace grounded out, and he scored the go-ahead run when left fielder Devin Harris dropped Mike Kvasnicka's fly ball.

The GreenJackets tied it in the bottom of the fifth on a walk to Joel Weeks, a wild pitch and a base hit by Chris Lofton.

■ Former University of Louisville standout Andy Clark and St. Mary's graduate Jonathan Roof had two RBI apiece in Hickory's 12-3 victory at Asheville. Roof had two doubles, and Joshua Richmond, another former Cardinal, added two hits.
