Holmes, two relievers shut down Legends in 3-1 victory
CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- Clay Holmes and two relievers combined to hold Lexington to two hits over nine innings as the West Virginia Power scored a 3-1 victory Friday night at Appalachian Power Park.
Holmes started and allowed just one hit and a first-inning run while striking out five and walking three. Bryton Trepagnier (1-2) pitched the sixth and seventh to earn the decision, with Ryan Hafner working the final two innings to collect his first save.
Dilson Herrera provided the spark on offense for the Power, going 4 for 4 with a home run in the first inning. That extended Herrera's hitting streak to seven games, including five-straight games with multiple hits.
The Power (20-20), which climbed back to .500 with the win, broke a 1-all tie in the bottom of the sixth inning and tacked on an insurance run in the seventh to complete the scoring.
The four-game series continues today with a doubleheader beginning at 5:05 p.m. The team's wrap up the series Sunday with a 2:05 p.m. start.
