Legends win second straight at Kannapolis, 7-5

The Lexington Legends scored seven runs for the second straight night and took advantage of three errors by the Kannapolis Intimidators in a 7-5 victory in North Carolina.

The Legends, who won 7-3 on Friday, got on the board first when Chris Epps singled in Brandon Meredith and Chan Moon followed with a sacrifice fly.

But the Intimidators took a 3-2 lead in the bottom of the third. Kannapolis' biggest hits in the inning were back-to-back run-scoring doubles off Legends starter Mike Foltynewicz.

Lexington took the lead for good in the fifth. Moon led off with a single and Delino DeShields Jr. and Zachary Johnson both followed with doubles. Johnson's double, his 14th of the season, knocked in both Moon and DeShields. Johnson has 44 RBI this season.

The Legends added three more runs in the sixth. Moon singled in Mike Kvasnicka and followed with a two-RBI double.

It was a rocky outing for Foltynewicz, but he still ended up with a victory. He gave up four runs on five hits and four walks. Foltynewicz improved to 5-1 and has a 2.15 ERA.

Jason Chowning, an Eastern High School graduate, earned his seventh save of the season. He pitched two innings and had four strikeouts.
