Lexington Legends

Four Legends suspended after Monday night's brawl (video)

Four Lexington players were suspended after Monday night's bench-clearing brawl during the team's game against West Virginia.


WCHS-TV in Charleston posted a video of the fight you can watch here.


Outfielder Adam Bailey and pitcher Brian Streilein will serve three-day suspensions through June 30. Pitcher Jorge DeLeon and infielder Jhonny Medrano will serve three-day suspensions beginning July 1.

West Virginia catcher Elias Diaz, infielders Andy Vasquez and Drew Maggi and pitcher Brooks Pounders were also suspended.

The altercation began when Bailey, attempting to score from second base on a single by Mike Kvasnicka in the eighth inning, collided with Diaz, who made the tag at home plate. The two exchanged words, and the confrontation escalated from there.

Legends lose 4-3

Cole White's double with two outs in the bottom of the eighth inning scored Justin Howard from first base to break a 3-3 tie, and the West Virginia Power went on to defeat the Lexington Legends 4-3 on Tuesday night in Charleston.

Howard's two-run homer in the first inning gave the Power an early lead.

The Legends scored in the second on a double by Ben Heath and a single by Emilio King. West Virginia answered in the fourth when White scored on a sacrifice fly by Kevin Mort.

Lexington cut the lead to one in the fifth inning. Ben Orloff led off with a bunt single and later scored on an error.

The Legends pulled even in the sixth inning on Tyler Burnett's solo homer.

In the eighth, Legends reliever David Martinez retired the first two hitters before Howard drew a walk. White followed with his base hit.

White had hit a walk-off home run in West Virginia's 2-1, 10-inning victory Monday.
