Two more LV errors allowed Robertson to score.
Lexington struck for two more runs in the seventh inning after Lago had closed to 15-8. Brown reached on a one-out single. Scantlin reached on an error as Brown scored. The third walk to Parish put runners on first and second. A passed ball on the catcher allowed Scantlin to move to third and home.
