Lexington Legends

Legends split doubleheader with Gnats

A grand slam in the top of the seventh by the Sand Gnats' Aderlin Rodriguez was too much for the Legends to overcome, and Savannah took the second game of Wednesday's doubleheader, 7-3.

Legends left fielder Enrique Hernandez homered to left field to score Jhonny Medrano in the bottom of the seventh, and Delino Deshields' singled drove in Joe Bonfe, but Lexington's rally was halted when Michael Kvasnicka struck out with runners on both second and third.

The loss went to David Martinez (4-4), who came on in the fourth inning and allowed two hits and two runs over two innings.

Legends 2, Sand Gnats 0: Telvin Nash's home run drove in Kvasnicka in the seventh to lift the Legends over Savannah in the first game of the doubleheader.

Jorge de Leon (4-4) entered in the seventh and allowed no hits to pick up the win.

The Sand Gnats had six hits but couldn't capitalize, leaving six on base.
