Southern Maryland 10, Lexington 1

Waldorf, MD – June 9, 2024 – The Southern Maryland Blue Crabs showcased a powerful offensive display to secure a decisive 10-1 victory over the Lexington Legends at Regency Furniture Stadium on Sunday.

The Blue Crabs wasted no time getting on the board, with the scoring starting in the second inning. With a strategic combination of patience and power, Southern Maryland tallied two runs early, setting the tone for the game. The momentum continued into the third inning, where they added three more runs, and another in the fourth, extending their lead to 6-0 by the midpoint of the game.

He followed it up with a second homer in the seventh inning, capping off a four-run outburst that sealed the game for the Blue Crabs.

On the mound, Southern Maryland’s starter, Ian Kahaloa, delivered a solid performance, going 5.2 innings while allowing just one run on two hits and striking out four. The bullpen kept the pressure on, with Derek Casey and Kyle Arjona combining to close out the game, allowing only three additional hits and no further runs.
