Legends beat Drive 6-2

Michael Foltynewicz and Scott Zuloaga combined on a four-hitter and the Lexington Legends beat the Greenville Drive 6-2 Monday night at Whitaker Bank Ballpark.

The victory, their fourth, lifted the Legends into a tie for fifth place with Greenville in the South Atlantic League Southern Division. It was the Drive's sixth straight loss.

Zachary Johnson had two hits and two RBI for the hosts.

Foltynewicz (2-1) allowed three hits in seven innings, struck out six and walked two. One of the two runs he allowed was unearned as he lowered his ERA to 1.72. Zuloaga struck out four and yielded one hit in two innings of relief.

The Legends got a run in the first on Johnson's two-out, line drive single to center.

Greenville tied it in the top of the third before Lexington took the lead for good in the bottom of the inning. Johnson's double, again with two outs, drove in Justin Gominsky from second, and Matt Duffy's single scored Johnson, who had advanced to third on a wild pitch.

Mike Kvasnicka's leadoff triple started a two-run fourth for the Legends. James Howick got Kvasnicka home with a one-out single and Howick later scored on Delino DeShields' fielder's-choice grounder.

Howick scored Lexington's last run on a passed ball in the sixth.
