King's double caps late Legends rally

The Lexington Legends sent the game to extra innings, then scored the winning run in the 10th to beat the host West Virginia Power 5-4 Wednesday night.

With two outs in the ninth, Lexington's Delino DeShields singled to score Emilio King from third base and tie the game at 4.

In the top of the 10th, Telvin Nash drew a one-out walk. Michael Kvasnicka followed with a single, moving Nash to second. Bryce Lane then came on to pinch-run for Nash, and King doubled to right for the go-ahead run, Lexington's first lead of the game.

Reliever Jorge De Leon (2-4) recorded the last six outs for the victory. He allowed a one-out walk in the 10th to Justin Howard but struck out the last two Power batters.

King went 3-for-5 and scored twice. Jhonny Medrano and DeShields each went 2-for-5.
