Brian Pellegrini

Lexington Legends slugger Brian Pellegrini launched his 21st home run of the season for Lexington Saturday to move within four home runs of the franchise record 25 long balls in a season.  Astros outfielder Hunter Pence and former Legend Beau Herod currently hole the record of 25 home runs.

  • Pellegrini’s home run wasn’t enough for the Legends’ victory.  West Virginia scored four runs in the last three innings to win 5-2.
  • Matthew Klinker and Pedro Viola combined on a three-hit shutout to give Louisville a 4-0 victory over Toledo in the series opener.
  • Chris Andujar allowed one run in six innings to lead Bowling Green to a 3-1 victory over Hickory.
  • EKU Sports writes about Christian Friedrich’s performance in high A ball.
  • Friedrich checks in at number six and Lexington Legend Jordan Lyles ranked number 11 on this week’s Baseball America Prospect Hot Sheet.  Bowling Green pitcher Matt Moore was listed “In the Team Photo.”
  • WKU sports reports that ground has been broken on the new Hilltoper clubhouse.
  • Don’t forget, the Russellville Little League team plays on ESPN at 7:00 in the finals of the Great Lakes Region tonight.
