Late Game Collapse Gives Rockers Comfortable Win 10-4

LEXINGTON, KY -  After a rain delay pushed the first pitch back by an hour the Legends struggled out of the gate, unable to record a hit until the 5th inning. However after 6 innings the Legends held the lead 3-2, they went on to surrender 8 runs in the final three innings costing them the game.

The Legends tallied just 3 hits on the night, walking 5 times. As a team they had no extra base hits and left 5 runners on base. Aldenis Sanchez was a bright spot for the offense tallying 2 RBIs on the night. 

Starting Alex Mackinnon went just 2 innings on the mound, allowing 1 run to cross on just one hit. The early issue for MacKinnon was the free pass. He issued 4 walks in the first 2 innings. Aldry Acosta gave the Legends a good appearance out of the pen, going 3 innings allowing just one run and striking out one. Parker Bugg picked up the loss on the mound throwing just 1 ⅓ innings allowing 3 runs on 5 hits. He was followed by Carlos Martinez and Neraldo Catalina who combined to throw the final 2 and ⅔ innings allowing 5 runs on three hits. 

After today's loss, the Legends fall to 10-24 and are 6 games back on 4th in the division. The Rockers improve to 20-14, now 2 games back on Gastonia for first place in the South Division. 

Game 4 of this series is set for tomorrow, Sunday, June 2nd at 2:00 P.M. Fans can purchase tickets online at or in person at the box office at Legends Field on Legends Lane.
