Lexington Legends vs. Delmarva Shorebirds (South Atlantic League)
Whitaker Bank Ballpark-Lexington, KY: One our way back from Tennessee, we decided to make a stop in Lexington for a ballgame. Am a big fan of Single-A ball and Whitaker Bank Ballpark, so lots to like about this game. This was actually Brian’s first game here, also. It had been rainy all day, but cleared up enough for us to enjoy the game.
On to the game, as it was an exciting one. A couple different players pitched in offensively for the Legends. Chase Vallot went 1-3 with an RBI, while Matt Morales went 1-4 with an RBI. On the mound, Kris Bubic threw five innings, giving up four runs, but striking out seven. Jon Heasley earned the win, throwing a shutout inning in the ninth.
A fun night of baseball, even though we were pretty tired, but I’m always up for a game here. This trip was a great start to the 2019 season, and we look forward to some Bats games in the coming weeks.
