The Lexington Legends and Hagerstown Suns split two games Sunday at Municipal Stadium.
The Legends won 11-1 in the completion of a game that had been suspended due to rain in the fourth inning Saturday night. Hagerstown came back to win the regularly scheduled game, which was reduced to seven innings, 2-1.
The Legends collected 14 hits in the opener, and every Legends batter had at least one hit. Mark Threlkeld was 3-for-5 with a run batted in, and Terrance Gore and Alex Hudak had two hits each.
The Legends had built a 5-0 lead before rain caused the suspension Saturday night. In the first inning, Gore was hit by a pitch, stole second, moved to third on a throwing error by catcher Pedro Severino, and came home on a single by Threlkeld.
Lexington added four runs in the second. Fred Ford drew a leadoff walk and moved to second on Michael Antonio’s infield out. Jin-Ho Shin was hit by a pitch, and a wild pitch moved the runners to second and third. Kenny Diekroeger’s base hit scored Ford, and Hudak’s single brought Shin home, giving the Legends a 3-0 lead. Gore’s bunt single loaded the bases. Diekroeger scored and Hudak moved to third as Raul Mondesi grounded into a force play at second. Mondesi and Hudak then executed a double steal, with Hudak scoring to put the Legends up 5-0.
The Legends increased their lead after play resumed Sunday. A double by Ford and a single by Antonio made it 6-0 Lexington in the fifth inning.
Lexington added a run in the sixth and scored two more in the seventh on four walks and a sacrifice fly.
The Legends closed out the scoring with two runs in the eighth on a single by Mondesi, a double by Threlkeld, a run-scoring single by Mark Donato and a sacrifice fly by Ford.
Hagerstown scored its only run in the sixth on Shawn Pleffner’s sacrifice fly.
In the second game, Suns starter Brett Mooneyham (4-2) allowed five hits over the first six innings. The Suns scored both their runs in the second inning. Craig Manuel and Narciso Mesa had RBI singles for Hagerstown. Cam Gallagher’s solo homer in the seventh accounted for the only Lexington run.
Miguel Almonte (3-6), who worked all six innings, took the loss.
The Legends return home for a three-game series against Greenville beginning Monday night. Game time is 7:05 p.m. Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday.
