Lexington Legends

Power cap series with another one-run win over Legends

The first three games of the Lexington-West Virginia series were decided by one run, and two games went extra innings.

Why would the series finale be any different?

Dan Grovatt's bases-loaded single in the bottom of the 14th inning gave the host West Virginia Power a 5-4 victory Thursday night.

After Emilio King's RBI single gave the Legends a 4-3 lead in the eighth inning, they went scoreless over the final six.

The Power tied it at 4 in the ninth on Rogelio Noris' two-out home run to send it to extras.

Lexington scored three runs in the third inning on four hits to take a brief 3-1 lead. The Power tied it in the bottom half on a two-run homer by Mel Rojas.

It stayed 3-3 until King's single in the eighth. King had the game-winning hit for the Legends in Wednesday's 10-inning win.

An error by Legends third baseman Michael Kvasnicka kept the Power's rally alive in the 14th. A single by Kevin Mort put runners at the corners, and an intentional walk loaded the bases for Grovatt, who delivered.
