Legends score five runs in sixth, beat Charleston 5-2

The Lexington Legends rallied for five runs in the sixth inning and beat the Charleston RiverDogs 5-2 in a minor-league baseball game at Whitaker Bank Ballpark Thursday night.

After getting just three singles in the first five innings, Lexington had three hits in the sixth, all of which drove in runs. The big blow was a double by first baseman Zachary Johnson. His line drive to left drove in two runs and chased starting pitcher Scottie Allen, who took the loss.

After a walk and an interference on the catcher loaded the bases, Roberto Pena drove in a run with a sacrifice fly. The rally finished with Drew Muren and Delino DeShields knocking in runs with singles.

Starter Mike Foltynewicz pitched into the sixth inning, but Jason Chowning replaced him with two runners on base and struck out Kelvin DeLeon to retire the side. Chowning pitched another inning and got the win, his first.

Designated hitter Tyler Austin scored both Charleston runs. He had three hits, including a homer.
