Tyler Wade had four hits and two runs batted in and Miguel Andujar had two hits and three RBI as the Charleston RiverDogs took a 10-3 win over the Lexington Legends Thursday night.
 
After each team scored a run in the first inning, the RiverDogs took the lead with three runs in the fourth. Wade led off with a single, and came around to score when Andujar’s grounder down the third base line got past Mauricio Ramos for an error. After Michael O’Neill struck out, Eduardo de Oleo hit a two-run homer, putting Charleston up 4-1.
 
Charleston added two more runs in the fifth. Mark Payton doubled with one out and scored on a two-out single by Wade. Wade took second on the throw home from the outfield, and then scored on a single by Andujar.
 
Garcia’s two-run double in the bottom of the sixth cut the lead to 6-3, but Charleston added a run in the seventh. Brandon Thomas singled, stole second, and moved to third on Payton’s ground out. Avelino drew a walk, and when pitcher Alex Black overthrew first on a pickoff attempt, Thomas scored.
 
The RiverDogs pulled away with three runs in the ninth, one scoring on a double by Wade and two coming home on a single by Andujar.
 
Angel Rincon (3-2), who relieved starter Andy Beresford with two outs in the fifth inning, worked through the eighth to get the win.
 
Legends starter Jake Junis (8-5) was the losing pitcher. He went four and two-thirds innings and allowed seven hits and six runs, four earned. He struck out eight batters and walked none.
 
Charleston has won the first two games in the series, which concludes Friday. Game time is 7:05 p.m.
