Locos get rain-shortened win


First Posted: 6/23/2014

LIMA – The Lima Locos took a 4-3 lead over visiting Lexington in the bottom of the sixth inning on a two-run double by Adam Smith in Monday night’s Great Lakes Collegiate League baseball game at Simmons Field.

Right after the hit by Smith, a storm rolled through the area and delayed the game, which was called at 9:52 p.m.

That was all the Locos needed as the game was not resumed and Lima recorded the weather-shortened win over Lexington.

Danny Sexton started on the pitching mound for the Locos. Sexton worked 5 2/3 innings before being lifted. He gave up three runs on five base hits, while striking out two, walking two and hitting three batters.

Ben Hudspeth came in to pitch in the sixth for the Locos.

Kyle Lewis went 2 for 3 for the Locos, while teammate D.J. Smith had a double.

For the game, the Locos garnered six base hits. Lexington (4-8) had five hits on the night.

The Locos (6-6) will host Grand Lake tonight at 7 p.m. at Simmons Field.
