Lexington Legends

Legends drop another in extras

The Legends continue to put in overtime on their road trip, but it certainly hasn't been paying off.

Lexington blew a two-run lead in the ninth and suffered its second extra-inning loss in a row, falling 6-5 in 11 at Hagerstown on Friday.

The Legends are 1-4 on their road trip. Every game has been decided by one run, and four of the five games have gone to extra innings with Lexington winning one.

Cole Leonida's single Friday scored Sean Nicol from second base with the winning run in the bottom of the 11th, and the Suns took the opener of a three-game series.

The Legends had taken a 5-3 lead on Ben Orloff's two-run triple with two outs in the ninth, but Michael Taylor's two-run double with two outs and two strikes in the bottom half sent the game into extra innings.

The Legends have lost six of their last seven games. They'll be back in town to celebrate the Fourth of July Monday and kick off a three-game series against West Virginia.
