Alexandria's Chris Lein and Jim Buckmeir pitched a five-hit shutout as the Dukes defeated the Lynchburg Mets, 1-0, in a Carolina League game at Four Mile Run Park last night.

Right fielder Jim Felt led off the third with a walk and advanced to third base on the hit-and-run as shortstop Tomas Martinez, who had made a great leaping catch in the second, singled past the glove of second baseman Fermin Ubri. Jim Aulenback's fly to right scored Felt.

Felt, the Carolina League's leader in outfield assists the last two seasons, saved a run in the fourth, throwing out Dave Cochrane trying to stretch a single.

Lein (1-0), a 25-year-old right-hander, retired eight straight Mets before giving up a single in the seventh.

Art Ray (1-0) will start the opener of a four-game series with Peninsula tonight at 7:30. Dukes' One Score Is Enough By David Elfin Special to The Washington Post
