Legends rally for four in the eighth to even series with Suns

The Lexington Legends rallied for four runs in the eighth inning to beat the Hagerstown Suns 6-2 at Whitaker Bank Ballpark on Sunday and even the three-game series.

A home run by Hagerstown's Kevin Keyes off Legends reliever Jorge De Leon had tied it 2-2 in the top of the inning.

In the bottom half, Lexington scored four runs on four hits and a pair of walks. Roberto Pena doubled home Tyler Burnett and Ben Orloff, and Delino DeShields followed with a two-run single.

DeShields went 3-for-5 and scored a run. Michael Kvasnicka, Orloff and Pena had two hits apiece.

Keyes' homer off DeLeon cost Carlos Quevedo a chance for the win. Quevedo allowed one run on six hits in seven innings. De Leon (5-4) pitched a 1-2-3 ninth for the victory.

Lexington took its first lead in the seventh when DeShields scored on a Jay Austin sacrifice fly, making it 2-1.
