Lexington busts loose late to win 2nd straight

The Lexington Legends broke a 4-4 tie on Jose Altuve's two-out, two-run single in the top of the eighth inning, and went on to beat the Charleston RiverDogs 8-4 at Charleston, S.C., on Saturday night.

Jake Goebbert added a two-run homer in the ninth as the Legends won their second in a row in the season-opening four-game series, which concludes Sunday.

The Legends banged out 13 hits, including three each by Altuve and left-fielder Brian Kemp.

Right-hander Kirk Clark (1-0) got the win for Lexington as the third of four pitchers for the Legends on the night. Starter Robert Donovan allowed two runs and six hits in five innings, before giving way to Jose Trinidad, Clark, then Colton Pitkin.
