Legends rally before taking a fall to Suns

May 10, 2012

LEXINGTON, Ky. — Zach Johnson hit a two-run single to highlight a four-run seventh inning and a three RBI night on Thursday to lead the Lexington Legends to a come-from-behind 6-3 win over the Hagerstown Suns.

The Legends (16-17) had five straight batters reach base after one out to erase a 3-2 deficit and claim the victory.

It was the second straight loss for the Suns (17-14), who are 5-10 on the road.

Hagerstown had taken a 3-2 lead in the sixth inning when Caleb Ramsey drove in his second run of the game with two-out a single to left.

Suns reliever Christian Meza (2-1) got the first out of the seventh before leaving the game after allowing back-to-back singles to John Hinson and James Howick.

Greg Holt came on and walked Delino DeShields Jr. and Jordan Scott to score Hinson with the tying run.

Johnson followed with his single and Matt Duffy added a sacrifice fly to give Lexington the lead.

The Suns had the tying run at the plate with two outs in the ninth but failed to score.

The Suns took a 1-0 lead in the first on Adrian Nieto’s two-out RBI single against Lexington starter Jonas Dufek.

Johnson tied the game in the bottom of the inning with a home run off Suns starter Nathan Karns.

Ramsey gave the Suns a 2-1 lead in the fourth with a sacrifice fly, but Lexington answered right back on an RBI single by Hinson.
