Reaction to the end of the Legends' season

Mark Maloney has some reaction to the end of the Lexington Legends' season - their best since 2006.

Lexington finished among the league's top three teams in batting average, hits, runs, RBI, walks and on-base percentage, and had the fewest strikeouts. However, the Legends also led the league in runners left on base.

"There was just some timely hitting that we needed that we didn't get," hitting coach Stubby Clapp said.

Jake Goebbert, who set a franchise record in RBIs and doubles:
"My biggest focus when I'm hitting is just driving balls in the gaps. And every time I walk into the box, I try to open my eyes, see the open parts of the field, especially the gaps and the holes in the infield."
